No..
Expert:  Dr.Saleem replied 8 months ago.

Would like you to take steam as it helps with the congestion and helps moistening the airways . Take Sudafed with this . You may take Robitussin for cough.

If its yellowish then it usually shows bacterial infection and requires a course of antibiotic like co-amoxiclav, azithromycin or levofloxacin . This shall require a note from your doctor though .

I hope you feel better soon.

Let me know if you have any further queries.

Expert:  Dr.Saleem replied 8 months ago.

Go for Robitussin Chest congestion that contains guaifenesin which is an expectorant . It should help.

Let me know if you have any more queries.
