I've had this cold or whatever for about a week and a half. It started with a terrible taste in my mouth, then a sore throat. I was waking up in the morning and when I blew my nose it was a brownish color. I am now still blowing my nose and it is yellow. How long does it take to get rid of this stuff. I am on a pennicillin (for about 5 days now). I am just feeling so stuff up and tired. Any answers would be greatly appreciated.
I don't know how long it will last, but, I do know that Mucinex (over counter) will help clear the mucous. It does so by thinning the secretions so the body can get rid of it. Mucinex plus an antibiotic work well together.
