Cough: Often people will get a post-infectious cough after having a common cold. This can be a result of inflammation in the airways. It may last several weeks. If you are feeling sick or having a fever then you should get seen by a doctor. A trial of OTC cough medication might help but there are prescriptions that might help, also.
