If so, you likely have a bacterial infection. They will eventually go away, but only a dose of antibiotics (or foods that naturally boost the immune system) will help it to heal. Creamy i.e. food with dairy exacerbates mucus production. You're putting in food components which build glycosaminoglycans, they are the building blocks of mucus.

I know I'm hoping the residual effects aren't going to turn into bronchitis or pneumonia, keep trying to cough that crap up. Definitely know about the dairy and mucus- In school I was in choir and the teacher always warned us about the 'dangers' of dairy when singing-I didn't notice any increase in production, although I'm sure it did to some point. So many people sick tho....there's near 3,000 people admitted to the hospital (this was a few days ago) and you think about how many DON'T go in-this is a really scary outbreak. Wishing all those who are sick a quick recovery!! :hf: [/quote] It's a very serious number of cases. Respiratory infections come from diverse causes. We won't know the root cases for awhile until tests come back. We're looking at the aggregate of all the cases and assuming that they're all of one kind of virus or bacteria, when in fact they're probably lots of kinds. That's why I posted several ways to discern between kinds for differntial diagnosis. There are some basic things that will help everyone. Do those things to give yourself relief. Learn to discern the differences and communicate them to your health care provider. If things get "hairy", and they certainly might, then it would be wisdom to have supplies. If you only purchase what you would ordinarily eat, then you lose nothing. If you don't purchase them, and things get bad, then you probably will have trouble finding them. Some of you are experiencing that now with medicines. Not good.' NOTE: Never swallow mucus if you can help it. It happens, but is very bad for you. If you can spit it up or blow your nose. Your sinus are connect to your pharynx, so it can got that way, but if it does a lot, then bacteria mixed with it, and some actually clings to the side of the throat and comes BACK UP. It's a classic way to get a fresh bacterial infection on top of whatever you have. [/quote]
