I have had a strong flu/cold that started about 2-3 weeks ago. The first few days, I had a fever, chills and also a very sore throat, but deep in my throat (felt like in the trachea) and not in the tonsil/back of mouth area.
This then turned into a heavy cough and runny nose that has lasted the remainder of the 2-3 weeks.
I was treated with an antibiotic but this did not help much. The doctor said it was probably viral.
As of 2 days ago, I started discharging A LOT of mucus from my nose and it is ORANGE/YELLOW in color. It looks like egg yolk. Sometimes even amber in color. It comes out in large amounts (tablespoons) and then stops for a while.
I have been drinking a lot of orange juice. I don't know if this has anything to do with it.
