Question: i have an occasioal cough that produces thick white mucus. i was told I have a bronchial and lung infamation and have been on Advair and another inhaler for two weeks. Do you think my cough could be related to a sinus problem? When I first started taking the inhalers I had a lot of nasal congestion which I don't have now. i don't have a cold now and didn't when thus started.

Brief Answer:
It may be both

Detailed Answer:
Hi Bigtony,

Perhaps you have a type of allergy - Have you been tested for this? As long as the inhalers work, all is good, but it could sound asthmatic or like hay fever.

Best wishes.
