Hi guys! I am 24 years old and I have been encountering cough, fatigue, runny nose with green discharge, swollen and tender lymph nodes in neck for 3 days now and today I have coughed frothy mucus. Are these signs of phlegm throat? Is this a really serious problem? I want to know about its possible causes and treatment? Do I need to have some kind of test done for confirming this phlegm throat condition?

    Phlegm throat can be because of the cardiovascular system such as congestive heart failure. These are caused by the bacterial or viral infections of the lungs and upper airways. When the lung is infected it produces extra mucus. This mucus comes out in the form of coughing and sneezing.
    Some causes of phlegm throat are:-
    1)      Acute bronchitis
    2)      Common cold
    3)      Croup
    4)      Influenza
    5)      Laryngitis
    6)      Pneumonia
    7)      Sinusitis
    8)      Tonsillitis
    9)      Tuberculosis
    You can bring phlegm under control by:-
    1)      Inhaling steam
    2)      Gargling with salt water
    3)      Eating spicy foods can also treat phlegm
    4)      Use of expectorants and steroids as medicines
    5)      Putting few drops of eucalyptus oil in the hot water, during steam inhalation can also be quite effective to decrease nasal congestion
     
     By trying all this, phlegm of throat can be significantly brought under control.  Finally everything can be brought under control.  
    Thanks and take care!!!
