lung infections

I have severe asthma, along with some bronchitis and emphysema.  I periodically cough up green mucus- not just recently, always.  I am not running a fever, I feel fine, I am breathing o.k.  Is it possible that green mucus isn't always a sign of an infection?

Green mucous is usually a sign of infection. Has your doctor done a sputum culture on you to see what is growing in your lungs? That would be a wise thing to do as you cough this up frequently. Perhaps a chest xray would be a good idea as well. I hope this helps...Sunny
