Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
Did you take any treatment for cold?

Do you have cough only or is there any pain?
Please enter your reply.
the first cold i did not it just went away on its own, except for the pleghm.
the cough only and its not very often just maybe 3 or 4 times a day
Do you feel any shortness of breath?
the cold i had on wednesday, was a sinus cold and its cleared up on its own except for the sniffles every so often
Cold as you know is caused by a viral infection.
Usually viral infection gets over in a week or so.
In the healing stage of viral infection there can be yellowish mucus.
Your mucus appears to be mostly white.
But a bacterial infection can set up after a viral infection.
The feeling in the throat can be due to a persistent infection or from post nasal drip from sinus.
It does not sound like bronchitis.
As the symptoms are continuing for weeks, I would advise to get an examination by doctor.
It is advisable to have an examination before you wish to visit the child.
i have suffered anxiety for the past month or could this make my cold not get better?
Anxiety can cause a pressure feeling in throat.
But it would not produce mucus.
i have a doctor's appointment on monday...
Mucus will come from irritation, infection.
It is good that you have an appointment.
You can do warm salt water gargling.
This will help with throat symptoms.
ok thanks :)
You are always welcome.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know
could post nasal drip cause a sore throat as well.
Post nasal drip can come from different causes. There can be allergy, infection. That can cause sore throat.
ok thanks will head to the doctors on monday.
You are again welcome.
