Please proceed with your query.
I have XXXXXXX having excessive mucus for the whole year
in the morning the phlegm is yellow and then it clears up
Do you have any history of allergy?
yes I do
If it is allergic in nature. Taking mucinex will work, but temporarily. It will not solve the problem.
online it says that the mucus shouldn't be yellow
Im not sure what im allergic too
Yellow mucus suggests the possibility of infection in already pent up secretion.
should i be concerned about this production of mucus
You can go for allergy test under your pulmonologist guidance to find out the exact triggering allergens like dust, pollens, food, etc.
ok do i have to go on Antibiotics
Treatment of allergy is basically preventive.
Antibiotics can be given in case of infection which needs to be confirmed by culture of secretions.
