Hello! Thank you for the question on

Phlegm cough can be caused by the following conditions:

 Bacterial infections and respiratory viruses, such as influenza viruses, pneumococcal bacteria, etc. Bacterial infections of tuberculosis (common symptoms are coughing for more than two weeks, fever, night sweats, and weight loss) Allergic reactions
In the current condition, cough with phlegm must also be wary of a novel corona virus infection (COVID-19), especially if there is contact with a positive person infected with this virus, or traveling / being in an area with positive COVID-19 patients, especially areas that are positive already have a local transmission case.

For that, make sure the cause of your condition, by checking with a general practitioner first so that further physical examination can be done. If you feel the need for further tracking, the doctor will conduct a supporting examination such as a chest photo or refer you to a particular specialist according to suspicion of the condition.

As for what you should do is:
 Maintain endurance by eating nutritious food, consumption of about 2 liters of water per day Limit heavy physical activity Wash hands as often as possible, especially before touching the face area Use a mask to avoid transmission to others
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
