I had a cold like 2 weeks ago, but it's gone. The only symptom I have now is a dry cough that won't go away! What can it be? Plus mucus in my nose!
Mgt: If the cough persists for three or more weeks, a follow up visit is advised. Typically upper respiratory tract infections may take two weeks to resolve.

Having a cough with phlegm and nose always seems to be stuffy but no mucus comes out an also a swollen lymph node in neck? Is this a cold? It's been a week and it seems it won't go away.
Could be allergies: Swollen nasal passages often occur with allergies, and drainage can go down the back of your throat causing you to cough up phlegm.
