Chest Infection

Chest infections are common, especially in smokers and their children and usually get better without treatment. Coughing up green or yellow sputum (phlegm) for a few days is the body’s way of dealing with the infection.

Contact the doctor when the surgery is open if:

  • The sputum has not cleared in a few days

  • You cough up blood

Contact the doctor immediately if:

  • You have pain in your chest on breathing in

  • You are becoming generally unwell with it

  • You are becoming increasingly short of breath

  • You are asthmatic and worsening despite increasing your medication.
