Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
I am Dr Ramadevi Wani. I will be answering your concerns today.

How far pregnant are you ?
Do you have fever and sore throat too ?

Cold is a mild viral infection. It is not normal to have this.

Cold usually subsides in a week's time. Take enough rest. Drink plenty of warm water. Take steam inhalation. You can use Paracetamol if you have mild fever.

If you have high fever or if the yellow sputum increases you need to consult doctor to rule out superimposed bacterial infection. Drink black tea with lemon added to it.

I hope this is helpful, feel free to ask further.
Best wishes,
Dr Rama

HI. Six weeks ago I was dx. with sinusitis even though I had no pain, just some drainage. The doc put me on a rampage of antibiotics as I was also coughing up yellow thick phlegm. Nothing has worked. I'm not in pain but the coughing keeps me up all night and so does the n ose blowing. You think maybe I contacted some alien bug?

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.
