Actually, a cough in which sputum is separated is rather good, as it helps the body get rid of mucus. But if the cough is constantly wet, sputum goes away, but does not bring a feeling of relief (at least for a short time), you need to see a doctor as soon as possible — an exhausting cough can be a symptom of pneumonia.

If the sputum that comes out with a cough is stained with blood or just has a rusty tinge, this is a sign that the infection has entered the lungs. Urgently consult a doctor — this is a very serious sign.

Difficult or shallow, shallow breathing is another symptom of pneumonia, which it is important not to miss.
