A:   Hello,
thanks for the question to askthedoctor.com
You seem to suffering from sinusitis and pharyngitis. With mucoid yellowish green discharge on coughing suggests infection and you may require antibiotics for the same. it is suggested that you may visit your physician for a prescription of antihistaminics and antibiotics. However in the mean time you may take plain water steam inhalation thrice a day to open up sinuses and soothen your throat .Its likely to be a streptococcus infection and can be confirmed with a throat swab culture accordingly.

Please visit your physician soon.
wishing you health,
regards
