Sputum was green yesterday yellow today. Sick for 3 days. Age 62. Do not have thermometer.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 4 months ago

green and yellow sputum can be a sign of a bacterial lung infection, like bronchitis or pneumonia

you should see a doctor

and get a sputum culture

and chest xray and temp check

you may need a course of antibiotics to get better.
