the color of the phlegm is clear & i use to smoke

Thank you for the information.First and foremost the cause of the phlegm needs to be determined.A chest X ray helps rule this out.In the meantime you should inhale steam.You should mix a few drops of eucalyptus oil in boiling water and inhale the steam.Drink plenty of liquids .You should also take an expectorant.These measures will help reduce the phlegm.Thus you will then be able to sing comfortably.
I hope this answers your question .

what type of expectorant would you suggest
Expert:  PK replied 7 years ago.
Common expectorant medicines are those that contain guaifenesin and bromhexine, thus these help.You should also have garlic as that too has expectorant properties and is good in a case like yours.Please do not swallow the phlegm and spit it out.I hope this answers you.Please accept the answer if you feel this answers you.Thank you.
