Hi guys, I have a question for some of you more experienced Bronchiectasis sufferers, I have been diagnosed over a year or so ago with this condition which has knocked me for six but since am learning to adjust and cope, I just wondered, when you get a cold or virus and you are coughing up more mucus than usual, does this need antibiotic treatment? My G.p recently saw me as I have a cold or flu and said my chest is clear, I am coughing slightly more mucus up than I usually do but it does not appear to have changed colour. I can breathe okay now it's come off and the cold is on the mend, but as a rule of thumb should I be sending samples off?
Previous samples have shown bugs but my G.P says that everyone has bugs in there body so I am just a bit confused as to if my immune can fight them or if I 100 percent need antibiotics whenever something like this happens?
