  • Without knowing what the problem is specifically there are no home remedies. Brown sputum is sometimes serious. It could be any number of a number of things, from just having inhaled something harmless that is still working it's way out all the way to a fatal lung disease.

    I would recommend finding a way to pay for a doctor. An office visit costs about $150 without insurance and many places have free or low cost clinics. Call a doctor's office or the hospital or social services and ask if there are any places like that.

  • i heard brown sputum is due to acidity in stomach ,

  • I'm not a doctor, so I couldn't tell you if that's true or not. Are we talking about sputum as in stuff you cough up or stuff you vomit?

  • That's what I thought. I don't know how stomach acidity would play into it, but I really think you should see a doctor unless you ahve recently had a respiratory infection and it could just be the infection clearing... and even then I wouldn't wait longer than a week.
