Lower Respiratory Infection Cough And Pheghm Still After 2 Weeks
Fever 101.2 feeling exhausted head hurts, dry cough for 2 days but mucus is stuck in lungs .. Nose and throat are ok. Pneumonia Or flu?
Hard to say; get see: A fever of 101.2 deg F is significant & not low-grade (100.4 deg F) so a bacterial infection is definitely possible. Detecting it, tho, is tricky as u will require blood tests & timed blood cultures when ur temp goes that high. Pneumonia just means infx of lungs, not specified as to bacteria or viral. U can get secondary infections of bacteria after lungs weakened by flu virus. See your doctor soon. ...Read more
The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more

Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is amoxicillin good for a bad cough and bacterial infection in my lungs and/or chest?, had cough for 2 weeks, on amoxicillin for 2 days now.
No: A bacterial infection in the lungs would be pneumonia. Amoxicillin would not be a good choice for this because many of the bacteria that cause pneumonia are resistant to amoxicillin. A quinolone like levoquin, a tetracycline like Doxycycline or a combination of a cephalosporin like vantin or Ceftin (cefuroxime) plus zithromax would all be effective for community acquired bacterial infection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi. I'm 27 weeks pregnant and have had a cough for 3 days. I'm starting to cough up yellow mucus and my chest hurts when I cough. Need antibiotics?
Pregnant/cough: Would follow up with doc urgent care. There is a degree of immunocompormised state during pregnancy and it seems as your cough is worsening so some might consider antibiotics like z pak (azithromycin) if not allergic. also have them check for reflux which can precipitate /exacerbate coughing and is common in pregnancy. ...Read more
Having a broncho-constriction everyday at night with cough but no sputum, started two weeks ago after an upper respiratory tract infection, what to do?
Lung function test: There can be prolonged inflammation in the lung following an infection. Your symptoms indicate that you may have post viral broncho constriction. Your physician may order a pulmonary function test to determine if you have reactivity of the airway. I would suggest a flu vaccine if there are no reasons in your medical history not to obtain one. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I've had a cough for over 5 weeks now and went to dr 2 wk ago and was told it was upper respiratory. Still coughing and rattling in chest while exhaling?
Cough causes cough: It very well probably was a URI weeks ago and at this point what you're left with is lungs that are so coughed out that there's inflammation down there causing you to cough... Which causes inflammation causing more cough, and you get the point. So, if you're no longer sick and just having the chest noises and cough, you would likely benefit from some prescription cough suppression. ...Read more
