Best Thing For A Chest Cold
What do u recommend for me to take with a chest cold but I have thyroid issues and liver is not the best?
Chest cold: For now go to your pharmacy and ask the staff what you should take without a prescription. If things are not better in 2-3 days please go to an Emergency Room nearby.
Yes: Sometimes with a chest cold we can have some aches and pains in your chest. If you hear wheezing when you breath or have a very deep cough or shortness of breath you should be checked for pneumonia by a doctor or nurse practitioner. Otherwise some minor aches and pains can be triggered by the coughing.
Hello, I'm not quite sure who to ask about this but I need some quick advice. I believe I have a chest cold of some kind. I keep coughing, and when I?
Upper respiratory in: Yes you may but if the cough persists you should see your doctor.
See doctor: There are many infections this time of the year - some can cause significant disease. Since the baby is young you should see your doctor to make sure nothing severe is present such as pneumonia or wheezing. You didn't mention if fever was present but this would increase concerns. In general avoid cough and cold products. Keep nose clear with saline irrigation. Keep well hydrated.
Exercise a cold?: There is a very simple rule. If your symptoms are above the neck, do anything you want. If your symptoms are also below the neck -- fever, muscle aches, fatigue, for example -- you should avoid exertion. Sitting in warm water is not a problem with a cold, but anything that makes you shiver will just make it harder to fight off your illness. A chest cold is just a cold with post nasal drip.
Asthma: Usually upper respiratory infections can trigger asthma and increased the dose of medications you use usually helps, under the guidance of your physician. A rescue inhaler is also used for acute relief of attacks. I suggest you seen an allergist if you have not seen one yet to better manage your asthma.
Waiting: You suffered from pharyngitis and vocal cord involvement. .. You can use warm water gargling that may help or just give it a few more days. .. It will return!
Virus in chest: The common cold tends to have "flavors." there are chest colds, nose colds, and nose colds, each in general caused by a slightly different class of cold virus. Chest colds tend to be caused by the "parainfluenza" viruses. It does not imply anything wrong with the lungs. People with a tendency toward asthma may get sicker with chest colds or get an asthma attack.See 1 more doctor answer
Took my 5 year old son swimming and about half hour later he would have random coughs why? Last time he caught a chest cold from this pool. Assuming?
Irritant or allergy: Another possible explanation is that he is reacting to the chlorine in the pool. That would be an irritant not an allergic reaction. There also could be something in the area of the pool to which he is allergic. To test this see how he does after swimming in non-chlorinated water - either salt water swimming pool or fresh water like a lake.See 1 more doctor answer
Other way round: Mostly people who have acid reflux keep on complaining as the have cough and cold.
COPD: It is easy to misdiagnosed with copd. Some patient diagnosed with COPD may have other causes of shortness of breath. X ray findings of COPD are rather non-specific.
Getting over chest cold, now when I breathe my chest feels irritated and inflamed. Is this normal after a chest cold with lots of coughing?
Chest cold: DNichols~ yes, indeed the coughing may go on for some time after the acute inflammation has settled. Use steam inhalations to break up the mucus, add something like Vicks to boiling water and place towel over head and inhale for few mins. This thins mucus and helps to clear. If sputum clear continue if not and symptoms worse see MD thanks
Currently have a chest cold. What r your thoughts for relief for the chest congest.? Don't mind taking otcs when necessary, but prefer natural remedie
Time, rest, liquids: Inhalation of steam, eucalyptus, sauna, lots of things to help. Usually the lungs and nose are tied together (one airway theory), so decongesting that for a few days (3 or less)with over the counter oxymetazoline and using nasal saline may help.
