After 5 Days Amoxicillin Cough Still Frequent And Debilitating
Im coughing real blood and I've got chest pain. No fever, but constant cough (big smoker). Will amoxicillin take care of it?
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

Typically, these coughs are bronchospastic and you may need a bronchodilator inhaler and perhaps a steroid inhaler. These coughs can occur with a viral URI or bacterial and may last for many weeks. Inhalers may increase your comfort. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Good luck and get better! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Not a problem: Amoxicillin is not likely to help your cold if that is what it is, nor will it harm your baby. If you do not really need the Amoxicillin would stop it now. There are several potential side-effects for you (not your baby) that are unnecessary to risk. Good luck and have a great baby. ...Read more
