    Yellow/Green Phlegm-Cold-Antibiotics Question

    Hi everyone,
    About a month ago, I started coughing up yellowish-green phlegm, so I went to the clinic, and they put me on antibiotics (Z-pak). It worked and after about 5 days of being on the Z-pak, I was better. However, literally to the day - one month later, I'm coughing up yellow-green phlegm again, and I've got a really runny nose and congestion.

    So, this time, I went to my primary doctor, and he told me he wasn't going to put me on antibiotics since I just had a dose a month ago, and he told me to just drink lots of fluids and get rest. BUT, after 2 days since seeing him, I'm still coughing up yellow-green phlegm and have cold symptoms, but no aches, no fever, and no other malaise...just yellow-green phlegm in my cough and runny nose, sneezing.

    So, I'm wondering if this will just go away or if I should revisit the antibiotics route...but...I don't want to if I don't have to because I just took them a month ago.
