Getting yellow colored sputum is suggestive of bacterial infection... You need to be examined clinically and antibiotics has to be started...reducing irritating stimuli that may provoke coughing. An upright or semi upright posture, such as sleeping with the head and shoulders raised, may decrease cough related to pharyngeal secretions...do warm saline gargling twice a day with OTC medication...Consult physician for antibiotics they will do the needful.
