Diagnosed with HER2, breast cancer, on herceptin treatment, have yellow tinged drips from nose, greenish mucus. Suggestion?

Hi, I am 42 female diagnosed with HER2+ breast cancer . I finished chemo in late April and 25 sessions of radiation in June. On one year Herceptin treatment since mid February 2012. Last week I had a sore throat and slight fever followed by pink eye. Five days ago my GP prescribed Garamycin 0.3% 4 times a day for 5 to 7 days. Yesterday i noticed yellow tinged drips from my nose. I have been coughing up greenish phlegm/mucus for several days now but this yellow tinged drip is new. Can you please advise?

Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
this symptom is totally unrelated to your breast cancer treatment or disease itself. most likely you have got a viral infection. most of the time it get regressed automatically. dont worry right now. please wait for 5-6 days , if the symptoms persists consult your oncologist or physician.
