Antibiotic For Cough With Phlegm Philippines
Almost certainly: It's actually a controversial area. There's "are you going to die from it" and that's thankfully rare unless someone has a lot of other health problems or over age 70. Then, there's will I have a better life from taking antibiotics. Again, controversial. First, we tend to forget to give anti-inflammatory respiratory meds (monteluekast, maybe inhalers) ...Read more
Phlegm is the thick, sticky mucus secreted by the surface of the respiratory tract during a cold or other respiratory infection. The respiratory tract includes the nose and sinuses, throat, voice box, bronchi, and lungs. Phlegm is mucus that may contain bacteria, viruses, respiratory surface cells, and inflammatory cells. Normal mucus is not phlegm, but a protective layer secreted ...Read more
If Viral, none: Colds are caused by viruses. Antibiotics do not treat viral infections. Antibiotics are for bacterial infections. Instead of antibiotics, treat cold with supportive care. If daughter is over 1 year of age, try using honey for cough. Salt water drops can help to relieve nasal congestion. Also avoid multi-symptom preparations as they are not recommended by American Academy of Pediatrics. ...Read more
See doctor: Since there are many causes for a chronic cough (lasting more than 3 monrh?) one needs to establish the cause before treating it. Antibiotic does not help a viral infection and its overuse has created MRSA. If you have a persistent fever, you may need to get a bronchoscopy. Since most chronic coughs are caused by more than a single factor, I suggest that you consult an allergist or pulmonologi ...Read more

I've had a non-productive cough for over two months and had two runs of antibiotics and cough syrups with no avail. What could be causing this?
Relentless cough: It may be that the antibiotics you chose are not the right ones. After all they are based on the best educated guess. You may need a study of a sample of your phlegm (sputum culture). It can also mean you have asthma that is showing up as cough. Some people that have silent reflux can have cough. You may need pft (pulmonary function tests) to evaluate for asthma or the likes. I hope this helps. ...Read more

This is not a one-stop shop. You must undergo a work up. ...Read more
