Patient :I am a 25 yof and had pneumonia 3 years ago. I am still producing large amounts of phlegm that I constantly need to spit out. In the morning I have to spend ten minutes clearing my throat. This never happens before I got pneumonia. My doctor says my lungs are clear and not to think about it. It is very uncomfortable how can I treat it? I just want it to go away. Thank you
