Good: That you are getting over your upper respiratory tract infection, the residual post nasal drip and cough can be dealt with by keeping the saline nasal wash, and keeping your upper airways clear, hydrate yourself well, you can use OTC mild cough remedy as needed to help you through, such as plain dextromethorphan, goodluck,
