You might have acquired with Viral infection.So,you had sorethroat,fever,body aches etc.
Bacterial infection has been secondarily acquired,most probably with the delay in the treatment.
You have to consult your ENT doctor and get examined.
You may have to take Good antibiotic,Antipyretic,Antiinflmmatory drugs.
You have rest your voice for few days.
Coughing up of mucus suggests that Lower respiratory tract is also involved.It will be responded to the above treatment.Otherwise,you have to consult chest Physician for this.
Everything will get subsided.
Wish you good health.

General & Family Physician Dr. Michelle Gibson James's  Response
Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

It is most likely a viral illness, even with the presence of green discharge.
You may want to consider using a mucolytic which would breakup the mucus, this can be combined with a oral beta agonist (opens the airways in the lungs) if the cough is persistent.
In some places these medications exist in combination.

An antihistamine and cough suppressant may also be helpful.

Even with medication a viral illness can sometimes last for 2-3 weeks or longer.

i hope this helps
