Cough : Cough is an extremely common symptom. More information is needed on duration of this cough to determine if it is acute or chronic. Do you have a history of allergies, asthma, or bronchitis? Have you been treated with anything? You need to see your primary doctor for a thorough history and physical exam. Treatment can be tailored to your needs based on further evaluation.
