I have a chronic cold problem. It starts with a continuous running nose the frst day. The second day have a slight fewer, with the nasal discharge getting thicker. The third day fewer continues with nasal discharge getting yellow and also coughing out sputum of yellow colour. I have to take antibiotics such as Arithomycin alongwith expectorant. However the fewer goes, but the coughing of sputum continues for a week.
