Thanks for writing to us.
The tick mucus and the cough that you are having is not likely to be related to the ribs that were fractured. It seems that you are having an infection in the airways which needs systemic antibiotics to take care of.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL
