what's wrong?

I just got over a cold but I had a cough that stuck. Every morning I wake up cough up a mouth full of mucus then procced to cough up more here and there throughout the day. And everyone I cough it feels like my chest vibrates. It's annoying and painful. What's wrong with me?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Cough with copious sputum indicates an infection of the lower respiratory tract. This is more so if you have fever. You need antibiotics to tackle the infection. So, please consult your primary care physician at the earliest. In the meantime you could try warm salt water gargles, steam inhalation and OTC Tylenol (acetaminophen) if you have temperature.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
