Hi , sorry for gory details but I have been dealing with a bad cold over Christmas with a incredible sore throat. I believed to get all better but became very unwell yesterday with flu like symptoms. Today I have been having a really sore cough and every now and then a big lump of very sticky lumpy phlegm comes flying out. Should I need meds? I am feeling a little better then yesterday . Just that cough is very very sore around the pleura area.
