    Good afternoon, Sorry about that. Since when have you been coughing? The duration is important in categorising what might be responsible. Greenish or black sputum is not normal and should be Evaluated to be sure of the cause. Yes infection might be involved. Please see a doctor as soon as possible. You might be told to have a chest xray done to be sure of the cause. Your sputum too might be tested to know which organism is responsible and the most effective antibiotics for the disease. Take care
