Do you have any phlegm coming out with cough?
Yes.. I have had drainage and phlem

it's mostly clear.. a bit green. and it feels really dry behind my trowath

See, there is a good risk of streptococcal infection.
This is a bacterial infection and best treated with antibiotic like amoxicillin.
However, viral infection is still possible which is in fact more common.
I don't have insurance. Can I still get treatment?
We do not issue prescription online.
However, you can go to any walk in clinic for that.
Another option, you can try some OTC remedies for 24 hours.
ok thank you very much
Mucinex D containing dextromethorphan and Sudafed should be good combination to take.
If you still do not feel better in next 2 days, then consider going to a walk in clinic.
perfect. I will try that
