Sore throat and dry cough

Common Questions and Answers about Sore throat and dry cough


Avatar n tn I came down with sore throat and cough from Chicago on the 8th of May. The cough was first dry and initiated by contraction of the throat. Slowly I started producing green phlegm. I went to see the ORL who confirmed my sore throat with strips of white infection. He gave me an antibiotic, Mucinex and Zantax and Tums for possible Acid reflux. 4 days later, sore throat is slightly bearable but the cough increased with white transparent sticky phlegm and is worse then I lie down.

Avatar m tn Three days ago i got a very slight sore throat and a dry cough with a slight wheez in my chest, not sure if the cough is a reaction to my ticklish throat. My sore throat is gone after three and a half days, my cough is almost gone and have had achy joints that migrate the last day in the half. I took a Home Access Express test and the result was negative. That is four weeks after.
Avatar n tn Hi and sorry you are ill. Do you still have the sore throat? Do you have a high fever? Usually, with a strep throat you don't have a cough or other symptoms. So this sounds like a virus rather than a strep throat. So, when you went it to the doctor what were your symptoms to start with? If you only had pus in the throat and a sore throat with a fever you had strep throat. Then if they did a strep test and it was positive the antibiotics didn't help the sore throat?
Avatar f tn Hi, I was sick with a cold that started with a sore throat then continued with a runny nose and turned into a dry cough. The cough was present for a while and then mostly dissapeared but I still have it from time to time. It is still dry and annoying and almost feels like a reflex to coughing itself, but its not so strong and comes just few times a day. I thought it was just due to the leftover bacteria causing it, expecting it to go away but it doesnt. What should I do?
Avatar m tn The next day my throat became scratchy and continued till the next day, then on wednesday i began with a small congested nose, and a dry cough. today, I have no sore throat, almost none congested nose, never had runny nose, but still have the cough, feel a little weak, and my eyes hurt a litlle.. What can this be, is it more of a common cold or the flu. Have not had fever nor muscle aches.
Avatar n tn Ever sine then, my throat has been bothering me. I have a dry cough with little phlegm and its very painful to swallow. Could the oral performance be a factor of my sore throat?
Avatar f tn It was preceded by sore throat and persistent cough (dry cough). The mucus sometimes looks green in color. Took some antibiotics and cough syrup too, but didn't work out.
Avatar n tn I have been waking up every morning for a couple of months now with a sore throat and when I clear my throat there is some blood in my saliva. If I get up in the middle of the night it happens as well. In fact anytime I have been asleep and wake up there is some blood in my saliva. I know that I snore. My brother says he thinks it's a nasal infection but why would it last this long? I was laid off for two months and just recently started working again.
Avatar f tn now for the last 2 dys Ive beun getting a painful throat and today I feel quite uneasy and ill and ive wrapped myself in a shawl in office(its not cold) Can you tell me wat cold be wrong with me?Do i need to do any other tests?
Avatar n tn My nose has also been kinda stuffy, on and off. Not runny, just stuffy, like an allergy/sinus. I looked at my throat and noticed that the back of my mouth (I think thats the tonsils) are red, some days its worse than others. I thought it could be mono but I dont have any other symptoms. I know some STDs show symptoms of a sore throat but I dont think its that either, and I dont have anything on the inside of my mouth. I dont have a fever, swollen lymph glands, fatigue, cough, headache...
Avatar n tn I went through 2 doses of Z-pack and for different cough meds , for the most part it went away except for this damn cough and the occasional dry heaving and vomitting after I eat. I cough on and off all day and have had a nasty case of diherria for about 3 weeks now. Can someone please tell me what I may have or is going on with me ???
Avatar f tn I also have occasional ear congestion. But no sore throat. Could this be a uri or a cold with no sore throat? Would meds help? Also how long will this last? Symptoms started last Saturday with the dry mouth. Thanks!

Avatar m tn Hello to all forum members! Just wanted to know if any experts could give me an advice... About 10 days ago, I went down with a slight fever. I was sick for 2-3 days but have had a sore throat/dry cough (every 5-10 minutes) till today. At first, I didn't think much of it until I started to have small cold sores (herpes) around my lip yesterday. Decided to serch the internet for STD syptoms and was suprised to find cold sores, fever and dry cough as symptoms of HIV.
Avatar m tn Hello Sir, thanks for your suggestion, but doctors could not find any results in blood samples. Everything is normal .Still I am suffering from dry cough, itchy skin, sore throat and ulcer. Can I do a HIV test?
Avatar n tn Try a humidifier in your room while you sleep. The dry throat increases the need to cough, drink lots of fluids...the cough them makes you pee a little because your "girl parts" are becoming more relaxed to prep the area for birth. ALL of the symptoms you have listed are normal. But is you have any doubt, talk to your OB at your next monthly visit.
Avatar m tn Thank you, even if these symptoms happened in the 2-4 weeks time? Unprotected one minute only.
Avatar m tn The nurse did not open the needle wrpper in front of me. on 16th april i got a sore throat followed by dry cough..which lasted till 24 april. do u think this is sign of ars? should i get tested ?
