Chest Feels Congested With No Runny Nose Or Cough
I'm having a dry cough, and runny nose and it feels like my chest is congested. Is this a common cold? Will OTC medicine work?
Common Cold: If your dry cough persists for a while (4-6 weeks) this could be secondary to inflammation in your upper airway or lungs subsequent to the common cold viruses or post nasal drip syndrome, in both these cases a short course of inhaled broncho dilators like albuterol might be useful (this is not OTC). Try steam inhalation, it provides symptomatic relief. ...Read more

18 week old doesn't have runny nose but sounds congested for past 10 days. Chest sounds fine (I think) Tried humidifier & saline drops. What can it be?
Baby nose: As babies face and head grow early in life, the nasal passages can actually narrow out a little bit. Since the nasal passages are so very narrow to start with in infants, a little bit of additional narrowing can lead to a lot of noise. He (or she) will outgrow this as face fills out in the second half of the first year. Nothing to worry about as long s no other symptoms and eating fine! ...Read more

Try mucinex (guaifenesin) to loosen any phlegm. If symptoms are long-standing, an exam by a physician at a minimum. ...Read more

Viral or seasonal: Allergies can cause all of the above symptoms. You may continue on until your sinuses plug up and get infected.

Not usually: Most allergy-related symptoms are sneezing, dry cough, watery eyes, itchy eyes or throat. If you have an asthma component to your allergies, you can get wheezy or be short of breath. A nasal steroid can be very helpful in treatment and prevention of symptoms since it works right where your body reacts to the antigen. Non-sedating anti-histamines are helpful if steroid spray alone won't do it! ...Read more
