Common Questions and Answers about Coughing germs


Avatar f tn Talking to a therapist would help. I tell myself that my body will protect me and nothing lasts forever even germs. Take care it will pass.

10314571 tn?1428116218 Ive had a sore throat for about 2 days and the doctor told me to take robitussin dm with no dye or sugar. It's really not helping and i have headaches from coughing. My nose isn't congested nor have i had a fever. Anybody else know of anything stronger we can take I'm at 26 weeks.
Avatar n tn I would take her to her physician as soon as you are able, it is certainly not healthy for her to keep coughing and vomiting. The coughing will hurt her insides if it is too strong and vomiting will prevent her from getting her much needed nutrients from food, etc. I really am not able to tell you what it is, it could be a number of things, and, as I said, it would be best if she saw a doctor. Please let me know the outcome, I know she must be miserable.
Avatar f tn yes it is contagious , I think continue breast feeding , but wash hands all the time and if you are coughing a mask may help , avoid coughing on or near baby you are doing your best I know hard when you are sick with a littleun let us know how you are doing .
Avatar n tn my daughter was a typical outgoing, fun loving little girl. she attends pre-k full time at a private school. this year there were more boys than girls in her class... and her "best friend" went on to a different class. not only was she withdrawn during the day, but became increasingly anxious and unhappy about going to school. she has a coughing-cold and suddendly became incredibly scared that she'd infect others with her "germs".
Avatar f tn m in nursing school and you catch colds by touching something with germs on it and then your mouth nose or eyes so keep you hands washed
Avatar f tn I've been coughing, blowing my nose, or trying to, no appetite, sore throat and swollen glands..Well I couldn't sleep at all last night and I swear I felt the baby kicking or punching me like he/she was MAD. It wasn't fluttering like some describe, but instead was like pangs on my right side, literally felt like punches. I go for a nt Monday morning at 8 so hopefully they can tell me what's what..but has anyone else felt this before?
Avatar m tn I had been getting really bad GERD symptom- coughing, wheezing, hotness of mouth but time of proper sleeping- not lying down before hand generally. I also have had powerful sneezing particularly at night but not just then also morning sometimes. I realised I had been drinking expired off milk- I noticed some off taste but because I was eating it with cocoa- I did realise the milk was- 4 days past used-by date.
Avatar n tn I too have been having coughing attacks where I cough until I vomit. I am on acid reflux meds and nasal spray to help postnasal drip. This has been going on for about 2 months. I had this before about 3 years ago. The dr. tells me there is nothing they can do about it. It's really bad in the fact I can't go anywhere without having facial tissue and a sack or something to vomit in, cause I never know when I'll have an attack.
Avatar m tn I had pneumonia as a baby so when I get any kind of upper respiratory infection my lung function usually gets pretty bad to the point of having scary coughing attacks with wheezing multiple times a day and needing an inhaler.
951477 tn?1293068687 Hi there, My 6week old son was taken to emergency last Saturday with high fever. The fever was 100.6 and went down with no meds the following day. Hy husband had the flu and the doctors tested his blood,urine and chest X rays just to make sure it's not more than just a flu. The pediatrition said his cough would go away on it's own within a week. It's almost a week now and the cough doesn't seem to go away.
Avatar f tn We catch colds and flu when our immune system is lowered and we have been exposed to the airborne virus by people coughing and sneezing. Germs are also passed by they hands and if the virus is on your hands and you touch your eyes, you will have contaminated yourself by that way too. Drink plenty of juices and water, honey with fresh lemon juice as a hot drink is soothing for a sore throat.
Avatar n tn Go to the OCD forum. You weren't ever at risk of contacting HIV.
Avatar f tn I wore my mouth guard retainer about six months ago when I came down with a sinus infection. I haven't worn it since because I've been worried about the germs. Like if they were still on the guard and if id reinfect myself. Last week I cleaned it with rubbing alcohol and even let it sit in the retainer case overnight with disinfecting soap and then again rinsed it with alcohol.
Avatar f tn But because of my slightly stuffy nose, my coughing and sometimes with phlegm - I also suspect it might be the common cold or just allergies because of the climate change, I even suspect anxiety because of finals week. I just can not see where the sore comes in.
Avatar n tn If the child had an intestinal virus or bacteria, it would have to go quite the circuitous route to get into your your digestive tract, because airborne germs applies more to sneezing and coughing from colds.
Avatar n tn 4 months into the relationship I become very sick with flu like symptoms (but no coughing, sore throat or nasal discharge). My lymph nodes in my neck become very swollen and my cheeks, gums, entire mouth and tongue started to burn with pain and had what appears to be tiny blisters. This lasted for about 2 weeks with on and off again chills. Looking on the internet the symptoms appear to be that of a primary HSV1 infections. How can this be as I already get cold sores on my upper lip??
Avatar n tn We go to the grocery store and the checkout person has a whopper of a cold, blowing their nose halfway thru your order, coughing on their hand and then handing you your change, you get a cold a few days later and think - I betcha I got this from that person at the grocery store and don't think twice about it ( other to cuss a bit about it ).
676912 tn?1332812551 But basically OCD is characterized by obsessive thoughts or actions that become intrusive to the point that it becomes a burden in our lives. I did see that you mentioned germs in your mood section. Is this something you worry about on a frequent basis? In any event, OCD is very treatable and really does require professional help in most cases. There are cognitive behavioral therapies (CBT) that can be learned and there are also very good effective medications available.
Avatar f tn LOL Her, Me and our son was all sick with fever, congestion, coughing and feeling like @#$^%. We have been on head drugs, not fun ones, and antibiotics (sp). I have missed you all too. I do miss marbles and some of the others that have left, I understand moving on, but it sad to loose friends.
