Is a long-term cough with sputum dangerous?
Doctor, 5 months ago I noticed that my throat was red. In addition, I often cough up phlegm, sometimes I also have a cough. I bought medicine to take, but the above symptoms did not go away. Please help me heal quickly.

With the question "Is a long-term cough accompanied by sputum dangerous?" , the doctor would like to answer as follows:
You describe the red throat, that is just your subjective feeling, not the ear - nose - throat doctor's comment. Therefore, it is difficult to advise you on treatment, in case you should see an Ear - Nose - Throat specialist for diagnosis and treatment advice.
If you still have questions about sore throat, you can go to a hospital of Vinmec Health System for further examination and advice. Thank you for trusting and sending questions to Vinmec. Wishing you lots of health.
