Persistent Cough with thick green mucus
I have a 3 1/2 year old girl who has had a cough for over 3 months. The cough is persistent and she occasionally coughs up thick green\yellow mucus. Even after coughing up the thick mucus, it seems to continue to accumulate in her throat. She does not have a fever or any other symptoms. We have taken her to the doctors several times. The first time the doctor gave her cough medicine to loosen the mucus, which did not help. The second time the pediatrician gave her antibiotics which helped for a couple of days, and then the cough and mucus came back. We took her to a specialist who told us that she has larger than average tonsils and suggested that they should possibly be removed or reduced through laser surgery. Please help.
