coughs were dry and caused chest pains and breathing difficulties. Eventually would produce slight phlegm
, but was always be unable to cough
it up. After going to the emergency after a coughing fit, I was told my lungs were fine, however, I could have whooping cough with an asthmatic component. Given a puffer, prescribed an antibiotic, and told me that if the coughing persisted after 3 days of taking the antiobiotic, to see my family doctor.
