Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Common cause for frothy sputum is GERD (gastrointestinal reflux disease) or due to pneumonia, lung edema, COPD(chronic obstructive lung disease), allergic causes etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful examination and evaluation. Consider visiting your doctor/healthcare provider for thorough examination and evaluation to look for the underlying cause and get started on treatment as appropriate based on your examination findings and evaluation results for symptom relief. If needed, consider discussing with a Pulmonologist or Gastroenterologist for second opinion. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/Pulmonologist/Gastroenterologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
