White sputum for more than 2months
I have been getting white sputum since long time. Got AFB, TB Test done. TB is negative. Was having k. Pneumonia and took antibiotics for that. Got chest Xray also done and was normal. Consulted pulmo and I was told it is allergy. But what I am not understanding is, it has been so many days, still I am getting white sputum sometimes however sevearity has reduced. How to completely get cured from this? Had gastritis also and took medicine for it. Is sputum generation and gastritis related? Not sure which expert to consult. Got ultrasound of abdomen and reports were normal.

Yes sputum production may be related to the gastritis and Gastro oesophageal reflux which leads to irritation of the larynx and upper airway leading to increased sputum production.
