It seems to come up from his lungs not out of his throat and is much smaller than a tonsil stone. It is firm but you can squish it easily. Also it starts to turn the yellowish almost green color when exposed to the air. He has coughed up a few of these over the two weeks and it has happened at various times of day. His cough is still a little congested but much more productive than in the beginning. His little voice is very hoarse....I would appreciate any insite!!! Thanks much.
I've had the same thing, only i had those come up while i wasn't sick or had a cough. If you think it's coming from the lungs though, and he is running a fever then you should get him checked out at the docter to make sure he doesn't have pneumonia.
