Lower Respiratory Infection Cough And Pheghm Still After 2 Weeks
Days after respiratory infection I still have postinfectious cough and still producing a little phlegm is this normal when will it go away?
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

I have a cough that produces phlem/mucus...Possible respiratory infection. Dr prescribed me kflex 500mg. Taken 3 so far in 24 hrs. Will it clear me up?
Depends: You should probably not be taking antibiotics unless proven to have a treatable bacterial infection. In a non-smoker what you describe is likely to be viral unless shown to have infiltrates on chest x-ray (pneumonia). You will probably get better in 7 days with Keflex and in one week without it. ...Read more

What is the best nasal medication for chronic cough? I am getting over an upper respiratory infection, I have little to no sputum and am not a smoker.
Nasal medication?: I am not aware of any nasal sprays specifically for cough. Coughs can occur because of "post-nasal drip" which is usually from sinus infection. These coughs may be relatively dry. You are already on an antihistamine and a nasal steroid. Nasal decongestants are habit forming and actually may worsen the problem. If cough is nonproductive and keeping you up at night, dextromethorphan/codeine helps. ...Read more
I've had a deep whooping type cough for 2-3 months. Now upper respiratory infection with pain. What should I ask my doctor?
URI: Ask if you had adult pertussis (whooping cough), whether you may have had an atypical pathogen (mycoplasma, chlamydia, etc.), whether you now have a new infection and what it may be due to. It would also be a very good opportunity to stop smoking entirely. Good luck and hope you are better soon. ...Read more
I have viral respiratory infection & got prednisone to control cough. I am very stuffy in sinuses. Should I stop Zyrtec until this clears up?
I'm a respiratory infection for a few days now and besides the runny nose and head ache I am having a very annoying cough accompanied by chest pain.
Not just 1: Thing to do here. For a patient of mine I would suggest over-the-counter plain Claritin or zyrtec (not with the"d") for the runny nose. 100% avoidance of all (all) milk products. The chest pain is likely from the coughing. If not allergic to it depending on patient size I recommend 1-2 advil + 1 tylenol (acetaminophen) for a patient of mine. As you know, I cannot make such medical recommendations for you. ...Read more
