Avatar f tn Hello ladies, I have a dry cough and I do not know what I can take to make it go away.

Avatar m tn It is day three, the congestion has turned into off in on congestion with a runny nose when not congested, a consistent cough with me trying to get the mucus out of my chest, to a dry cough.
Avatar n tn Also if your home is very dry due to running heater (this is the case where I live) dry heat can cause nose bleeds. Go to doctor get you some meds a cold does not last 4 weeks you probably have a sinus infection or even pneumonia both of which require antibotics.
Avatar m tn I am one of the millions of people in this country without health insurance. Therefore, I am reduced to trying to medicate my children at home. My son got a cold and now has a dry, persistent cough with chest pain. What would be the best over the counter medication for these types of symptoms. He is an asthmatic as well, however, he is not wheezing or experiencing any symptoms related to asthma.
Avatar f tn I had a cold before I traveled to my home country, Vietnam, in 2003 I think. I was prescribed antibiotics and etc. The cold got better but then I began to develop this dry cough. I was there for 2 months or so, when I got back I went to the doctors. They said that nothing was wrong and that I could still have a little infection. He prescribed more antibiotics. I know that antibiotics don't really serve for anything b/c colds/flu/etc are viral not bacterial.

Avatar m tn I have had a cold for about two weeks today it started with sneezing, runny nose, cough etc and progressively had gotten to the point for a week ive had stuffy nose, dry cough and sometimes sounds thick, more chest. pressure making it more difficult to breathe, have no sence of smell or taste. I also cough up thick mucus frequently. Im just not getting any better and its irritating. Ive taken all cold meds, humidifier, vics, everything and nothing helps.
Avatar m tn I had a cold from 02/17 - 02/26 and then I got another cold from 03/03 - 03/16. Symptoms of my cold were runny nose, cough and congestion. Every morning I would spit out green phlegm and afterwards it would be clear. So on 03/16 everything cleared out, no longer had any cold symptoms; although I was left with a cough, somewhat tight chest and short breath. There's no mucus, it's a dry cough and any mucus I spit out or blow out is clear.

Avatar f tn my son started a dry hack at 19 mos. at the tail-end of EVERY cold. He'd cough NONSTOP at night for 3 days. Sometimes more. then from age 7 to 14, it stopped entirely. He is now 24 and he still gets this non-stop cough after a cold (not every cold but a lot of them). Drive us & him crazy. He was tested as a child for asthma & the dr said it is NOT asthma.!
Avatar n tn Almost a week later I only have the sore throat in the evening and the morning, but now I cough so hard I dry heeve. Also when I cough the front of my head and the back right side hurt so bad it brings tears to my eyes. I usually only cough in the evenings and mornings the most, mainly when I try to take a deep breath. I only cough something up once in a while not very often. I have not been taking the Hydroco (neighbor thought was a bad idea for me to take it) only taking NightQuil.
Avatar f tn would it be ok to still take over the counter medication as well like Sudofed nasle spray and also take Broncostop cough mixture to help dry up my sinuses and help stop the horrible cough that I have? I'm not sleeping at night because of this.
Avatar m tn Day 5- chills came back, had another night sweat (my neck, chest, and upper back were drenched), minor sore throat, dry cough and congestion. Day 6-Day 13- lingering dry cough. On Day 10- I went to the doctor and he prescribed me antibiotics for the cough. It has been a week since Day 13 and all symptoms have subsided with the exception of some congestion in my throat. I took a test for HIV yesterday but the results won't be back until next week. Does this sound like an ARS related episode.
Avatar n tn I only have a dry cough when I'm in an air conditioned area, when a fan is blowing and always when I lay down on my couch. What can this be? And how do I stop the cough? If its a type of asthma, I would like to know if I need an inhaler.
Avatar n tn I have since recuperated except for the persistent dry cough. It seems worse at night; however, I get bouts of deep, dry, coughing throughout the day. I am not prone to allergies and am in general good health. What is it? What can I do to stop it?
3166043 tn?1514260018 So on Tuesday i woke up with the worst sore throat ever and it lasted a full two days. Now today it's gone and i have a bit of a stuffy nose and a slight dry cough. I have NO appetite and just do not feel good. I don't think I've had a fever. My sister had bronchitis. Should I go to the doctor or just ride it out?
Avatar n tn with chest infections the coughing gets worse when you lay down, go in and out of the cold, is wheesy, sometimes with mucus, and it is quite a bad chest infection when is starts getting crackly. also coughing can be so frequent, hard or violent it can cause bad headaches. you really need to see a doctor. the longer you leave it the worse it will get. if you leave it too long you will struggle to breath. especially with asthma, chest infections when left can be dangerous.
Avatar n tn Just prior to the procedure I had a TEE. Since my procedure I have had a persistant cough, no cold symptoms, just a dry cough. Could this be aresult of the TEE or the procedure itself? Is there any reason to be concerned about this symptom? I can't think of any reason I have a cough, in terms of a cold or allergies.
Avatar n tn After taking ZPack for 5 days and several days later I did not see any effect. I had a dry cough along with a wheezy/whistling exhale. Sometimes my cough is so severe that I vomit and feel like stomach acid is coming up. My cough is more consistent throughout the night and the morning when I wake up. There is very little phlegm that comes up with my cough every now and then. I have taken tussin to help with the cough but it only suppresses it very minimally.
