Is prolonged cough with green mucus a symptom of some allergy or asthma?

Why do I have cold symptoms all the time. I have a bad cough and am coughing up green mucus. I'll go for maybe 3 or4 maybe 5 days without coughing then it starts up again. This has been going on for months. I have been on antibiotics 3 times. I also have asthma but it's completely under control with Dulera My doctor or maybe I should say my nurse practitioner is diagnosing it as allergies.

If you are diagnosed with allergic asthma then these symptoms might be exacerbation of your asthma. The green mucus shows also an infection in your lower respiratory ways. I think you need to do a spirometer test and then to be treated with inhalant corticosteroids, bronchodilator and other complementary treatments.

I hope this answers your query. I remain at your disposal in case further medical assistance is needed.
