Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum

The pus could be either a post nasal discharge or collection from the chest. It is better to consult a good physician for a complete evaluation of the nose and the chest. Also, you need to get a culture and sensitivity done for the pus and chest x-ray/ telescopic laryngoscopy, if required.

Wish you good health.
