Cough: progressively worsening cough, even with no fever, would be a good reason to see your pediatrician. A complete examination and a detailed cough history would help to make a proper diagnosis and provide treatment as needed. Is the cough consistent? worse at certain times of day? Anything help cough or make cough worse? many times cough does not actually come from a problem in the lungs. ...Read more

HI! And if I don't have a cough anymore and have no fever, does it mean that I'll be ok and have nothing to worry about?

HI! And if I don't have a cough anymore and have no fever, does it mean that I'll be ok and have nothing to worry about?

Not sure: Would help if you tell us what you were worried about in the first place. Common symptoms of common cold include cough and fever, but so do hay fever, allergic rhinitis, mononucleosis, strep throat, pneumonia, asthma, etc. If you were worried about any of these conditions, then please let us know if you have other symptoms that could be more specific to these conditions.

I was sick about 2 weeks ago, just a regular cold, no fever or anything but I have had this annoying cough for over a week, when will it go away?

Cough: Often people will get a post-infectious cough after having a common cold. This can be a result of inflammation in the airways. It may last several weeks. If you are feeling sick or having a fever then you should get seen by a doctor. A trial of OTC cough medication might help but there are prescriptions that might help, also. ...Read more

I have a severe cough but no fever, what to do?

I have a severe cough but no fever, what to do?

Cough, no fever: I would ask if the cough is dry, or productive of phlegm, and, if so, the color. Some people do not mount a high fever. Severe cough should be evaluated by your physician. They may be able to diagnose a pneumonia by lung exam, but you may need to have an xray. Persistent cough may also be a sign of allergies or asthma. You should be examined. ...Read more

Daughter has a deep cough but no fever?Should I be worried?

Daughter has a deep cough but no fever?Should I be worried?

Not necessarily: It's a good sign your daughter has no fever. If it looks like a cold with a just a runny nose and deep cough, it's okay to wait 3-4 days and see how she does before seeing your doctor. Cough can be caused by lots of things and not just infection. Acid reflux can do it. So can an aspirated object (if your daughter's a toddler). Good luck! ...Read more
