I have egg yolk orange mucus from my nose. This cold won't go away, i've had it for two weeks. Can you help me?

Did you have any test or treatment?

Did you have any other symptom or previous illness?

Thank you.

No other test or treatment. Cough drops, netti pot, just stuff i use at home
Thank you for the information,

As the secretion is thick, deep color, not getting improved by itself, most probably it is bacterial.

In case of bacterial infection antibiotics will be required.

Cough syrup alone will not help.

For prescription, you have to go to doctor.

OTC medicine will not help.

When you are still having symptoms you should be seen by doctor.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
