Question: Hello so for the past 3-4 months i have been having a sore throat, nasal congestion, runny nose and coughing up some mucusy clear substance however quite recently i have been coughing up so more yellow and greenish mucus not all the time but a few times.. At first i thought i had a sinus infection and took medicine according to that till my friend who is going in the medical field told me It might be allergies so i have been taking allergy meds for a months or so and it did help but now its not working as well. What do i have and can u help me cause ive woken up every night for the past few months because of this i wanna rip my throat out in the morning becuase of how bad this is, my nose runs so much, and this is the first time ive actually had allergies( if this is what it is) in this season i normally only get them in the spring and its never with a sore throat.
