been spitting white/clearless foamy phlegm..

i've been spitting white/clearless foamy phlegm for a week now and sometimes in the morning the phlegm is light green..i thought it was caused by allergy and took claritin but it does not help...what caused this? flu?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

If your symptoms are due to an infection like flu, you should have other symptoms like fever and sometimes throat pain. In the absence of which its most likely to be due to allergens. The nasal congestion too, could be due to this. If the present anti histamines are not very effective you can consult your doctor for long acting ones.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
