  • this is probably post nasal drip irritating your lungs . allergies cause your nasal passages to swell internally. this blocks the sinuses.they fill up with bacterial crap.it leaks down your throat.your lungs dont like it and produce phlegm to wash it out.theres the problem .the solution?one.control the allergies. cetirizene is good.two.reduce the internal swelling with sudafed ,also very good.three. get your doctors help .you may need several courses of a high dose antibiotic to clear the crap of a lifetime out of your sinuses.four. accept that it will be a long job, you will have to take cetirizene and sudafed on a permanent basis.you will probably never be completely better,but ninety five percent is pretty good and quite usual.you will have to go out of your way to avoid colds and flu.i personally react to the sound of a sneeze or a chesty cough as if i had heard a gun being cocked.keep your hands clean .ive been using the new handwashes widely advertised,and i think they have beenhelpful this winter.get the flu jab .be systematic.it is worth it.you only get one set of lungs.
