    Hello and welcome to the forum Praveendvg. Medical concerns should be brought to the attention of your doctor. It may simply be the common cold , but as you have the sore throat as well....better to have it checked out if it persists.
    Coughing after quitting smoking is not unheard of. In fact I was concerned earlier on that did not cough up the residue left in my lungs from smoking. As the lungs heal themselves or get stronger, i am able to expel a deeper cough to clear the airways. Before i quit smoking, i was getting concerned at how weak my cough was. We are relieved to feel great differences in our breathing in just a few days. No more shortness of breath or wheezing.

    Thanks for letting us know you are enjoying your new status as a non-smoker and loving your new regiment , but get professional help for your mucus concern.
