Allergy and cough

Common Questions and Answers about Allergy and cough


Avatar n tn There are many causes of cough, some infectious or on an allergic basis and some not, for example aspiration (into the lungs) of a foreign body. Allergy is a reasonable consideration and can be present with cough the only “allergic” symptom. You might want to do a careful examination of his room, looking to the possibility of a new, allergic substance having been introduced. Also, cough (without wheeze) can sometimes be the only symptom of asthma.
Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. The symptoms described could be due to a throat infection, most probably streptococcal or a viral infection. Strep sore throat needs to be treated with an antibiotic as strep is a bacteria. Viral sore throat is best treated with rest, warm oral fluids and (OTC) tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for pain.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed and treated for colon cancer in Sept 2010 and cleared in July 2011 after treatment. I developed this cough in Nov 2011 and still have it today. I've seen a Lung Dr., Gastroologist (which found that I also suffer from Acute gastritis), Family Dr., Oncologist and my allergy Dr. all to no avail. I've had two chest x rays and nothing was found. I've have a PET scan and nothing was found so now I don't know what to do. My cough is productive.
Avatar f tn I had pneumonia 6 months ago, which was treated with antibiotics. I got well but my cough continued. I cough (mostly dry with some mucus) throughout the day and it cough bouts are horrible at nights. I ignored the cough thinking it will fade away. Few months ago, I started experiencing breathlessness and tightness in chest alongwith coughing. My doctor said it was allergy and prescribed some medicines for lowering eosinophil count. It did not work.
Avatar f tn s, cat scans, allergy tests only show grass, weeds as allergy related. He could have post-nasal drip causing him to cough. Elevate his bed (pillows under mattress) portion. He could also have "reflux" and should try otc prevacid for acid reflux..stay away from spicy foods.Try using the neti pot (which has done wonders for me vs. medication) which can clear up some of the mucus that is dripping down the back of his throat.

Avatar f tn I am not really familiar with losartan, but if it falls in the family of blood presure medications known as beta blockers it certainly can be the cause of your cough. Ace inhibitors have a much lower risk of causing the cough, and most people who have problems with beta blockers do well on them. I hope that helps you a little. God bless.
Avatar n tn however, most cough medicines loosen up the congestion in your lungs so you can get it up and out and stop the cough and if you said that it was a really dry cough, it could be something different that you might want to see a doctor for...I guess this doesn't really answer your question but I'd start with a pharmacist and see what they say.
Avatar n tn Doctor (paeditricians) seems to be confused and about the causes and sometimes say it is due to allergy or asthma (triggered by allergy) or flume in lungs etc. I am worried about the frequency of occurance and it might affect his studies too. He seemsto have reduced appetite (in general) and has not gaining much weight. I need advise as to which specialist I should apparoach to so that the diagnosis can be done correctly.
Avatar n tn He has no other symptoms, has had a chest and sinus X-ray, which were normal. He has had antibiotics and steroids. The cough has not gone away. Not sure why he thinks it is an allergy... Please advise. Thanks!
Avatar m tn Doctor told me to do blood work it comes normal, then he said me allergy given me allergy medicine and a cough syrup. Did not help but when I took the cough syrup urge of coughing and throat tickling gone for 2-3 hours then again come.One day the cough gone automatically, though it bothers me some time, after almost 5 months with out coughing , last week i had a mild cold, and again that cough came.
Avatar m tn I wonder if anyone can help. I have a 4 year old daughter who has been coughing for 3 to 4 months. She wakes up most nights coughing. It sounds like she has a lot of mucus in her throat. She will cough continuously for more than an hour at a time. She coughs when she wakes up, when she runs around, goes out into the cold air. In addition to this, she is pale and has dark circles under her eyes.
Avatar n tn hhmm..hi...can you tell me why my coughs and sneeze are almost a 2 years , it won't stop, I'm an culinary student and afraid of doctors, well already checked up in a clinic and gave me an antibiotic and something , they says that it's just a normal cough and sneeze but it almost a 2 years!!! wat am I supposed to do?? and it feels like an abnormal cough and sneeze, I can't explain it!
Avatar n tn t afford anymore (no insurance out of pocket for everything) and did the allergy meds, cough suppressants, expectorants...blah blah blah... My husband is pone to environmental allergies so this may be something similar but really? It seems to be most prevalent when and after she eats or drinks something but also happens from the time she wakes up when she hasn't even had anything yet - we thought - post nasal drip?
1173253 tn?1263496613 Currently I have chest congestion and a cough, so it is even worse than usual. I am not sleeping as I keep taking off the CPAP to blow my nose or to cough. Could I be allergic to the CPAP, or the dirt or germs in the tubing, or to the air that is sucked in thru the CPAP? No matter how good I feel in the day.....I get worse at night? Help Please.

Avatar n tn My chin gets really itchy, then my back near the top of my neck and then I cough like a mad person and cough out liquidy white phlegm, I feel wheezy and have actually had to start using the inhalers which dodctos kept fobbing me off with in the past. It is driving me insane, not feeling well and I am terrified that these fits will happen when I'm out in public. I am at my wits end and wold appreciate any suggestions.
Avatar m tn I was given Bactrim anti biotic for something else and after 5 days had to stop it as it made me feel so sick and the cough was back worse than ever ...4 weeks in I still have it ..
Avatar f tn So is it acid reflux or allergy or simply stress and anxiety causing me to cough.

Avatar f tn If the itch comes back despite the hypoallergenic diet, then the reason/diagnosis would be pollen/dust allergies (Atopy) and referral to a veterinary dermatologist for allergy skin testing and desensitization injections (just like allergy shots in kids) would be warranted.

Avatar m tn I am a 20 year old college student. I have had asthma since I was 6 years old. Every time I have gone home for more then 3-4 days I have reaction to something either my cat or my parents cigarette smoking. As I return to college I have a constant cough for a week or so. The first break thats all it was, was a cough with light constant asthma. The second break I completely lost my voice for a week, coughed a lot and had constant asthma.
