Those of you who have asthma have you had mucus plugs?

If so, what has helped you in dealing with excess mucus and mucus plugs? Thank you.

    I have! What has helped me is daily mucous clearing with a PEP device ( such as an apace or Aerobic) and keeping my inflammation under control. Other things that i have tried are massage therapy/physical therapy to help clear mucous. It is important to note that I am not a doctor and these are my personal experiences. I wish you well.

    Hi April04 and thanks for your post. While I’m hopeful others in the community will respond with their own personal experiences, I thought you might find it helpful to look over this material on that very topic: https://copd.net/clinical/mucus-with-copd/. Please note, it is from our sister site: COPD.net, but I feel the content will provide you with some additional insight to your mucus concerns. Wishing you the best, Leon (site moderator)
