‘plenty of’ or ‘a lot of’

What is the difference between

plenty of” and “a lot of”?

They are both used with uncountable nouns, aren’t they?

Do I say,

“I feel plenty of/a lot of phlegm in my throat.” or

“I feel copious sputum in my throat.”

Is it the correct conversation during a visit to the doctor?

Plenty of” and “a lot of” can be used with both countable and uncountable nouns.

You can say

“There are plenty of/a lot of apples in the fridge.”

(“apple” is a countable noun)

And you can say “I feel plenty of/a lot of phlegm in my throat.”
