I have a very bad cold with sore throat and i am getting blood while coughing

Hi, i developed a very bad cold last week with sore throat . It then went into a very hard cough which is non stop day and night. The noises when i breath in and out sound so bad it s almost like the sound of snoring but it s coming from either my tubes or lungs. It pops and whistles every single time i breath in and out. I ve had this wheeze since an attack of bronchitis in december. I am a sufferer of bronchitis pneumonia . The foul smell of the phlegm is so bad that it s making me vomit a few times a day and i am 99% sure that i can taste blood. Thank you Karen

I have been bothered by what I thought was a cold, since before Christmas, about three months. There is sticky mucus, not affecting my nose so much as my chest. Sometimes I cough, sometimes my nose runs with clear mucus, but mostly it s thick and sticky. My breathing isn t too bad, but it doesn t quit, and I am more tired than usual. I am active, but 73 years old. I eat healthy food, am not overweight. I seem to get better, and then it comes back. My husband also has been troubled since before Christmas, but he has more of a cough and sore throat. We both seem to get better and then it flares up again. I have been using some natural antibiotics, like olive leaf extract and oil of oregano. Is there a naturopath online?

I have been fighting a cold, sore throat, cough (getting better) and stuffy nose for one week, starting my second week. Going out of town this weekend and the week following 15 days to be exact on vacation. Will a B12 shot be good to give me to boost my immune system and shorten the length of my cold? YYYY@YYYY

I am 5 10 , 195 lbs, 24 years old male.... So sunday night I was getting a scratchy throat, but I was not worried, woke up next morning and had a sore throat, went to work it was manageable, asked fellow employees why my throat was only sore on one side. Monday night I started to get cold chills and a fever..Went to bed and woke up next morning with an even worse sore throat on my right side only. I was tired and had body aches, so I thought it was the flu or something, took some pain killers and went to work, Tuesday evening at work I was getting even more cold chills the night before , so I went home early and took a hot bath to warm me up, some tylenol and tried to sleep. Wednesday morning, same routine, right side of throat hurts even worse, where I can barely swallow liquids with out my throat hurting. So I took some thera-flu the prescribed dosage and continue to take it but still no results, but I happened to look in the mirror with a flashlight right next to my right tonsil it looks as if it got infected and there was white stuff stuck in there. I tried to remove it with a q-tip but was unsuccessful, not only did it hurt but it felt as if it was stuck in. Thursday I went to a doctor and she said I have some sort of pharyngitis, pre scribed me some amoxicillin and asked if I have post nasal drip, not that I know of.... But I have been following the directions and still now it is friday woke up pain in my throat on my right side only and I havent any real food since sunday... Am I not giving the amoxicillin enough time, if not if my throat continues to be in pain what s next?

One week ago, I reached for the wrong toothbrush that had been in my cabinet for a year without use. By the time I noticed, it ws too late. I immediately felt an attack in my throat and sinuses. I was already taking penicillin at the tiime for a periodontal tooth infection in prep for getting an extraction/bone graph. I got the greenish discharge and sore throat. I was traveling at the time, so when I got home I began eating green vegetables and soup remedies. My throat is still slightly sore and my back sinuses are still draining but with a clear mucous. I thought I was getting better until last night I woke up with a t-2 thru t-12 back ach pain scale of 4/5. I took Exederin which has reduced the pain to a 1 or 2. I just want to know if this is turning into something more serious. I have had no trauma to the back and I have a great bed.
