Something’s up.: While your symptoms are non-specific, they suggest that something is going on that deserves investigation. If you were only symptomatic like this for a few days, I could suggest a viral infection. But with three weeks of symptoms and significant fevers, you need an investigation into cause. ...Read more

Been having a runny nose bad cough especially at night, Claritin (loratadine) hasn't been working. No fever, no chills, just cough and runny nose. What should I do?

Been having a runny nose bad cough especially at night, Claritin (loratadine) hasn't been working. No fever, no chills, just cough and runny nose. What should I do?

See doctor: Post-nasal drips is likely the most common cause for a chronic cough but you will need to be checked out for asthma also. Nasal steroid is usually more effective than Claritin in reducing the nasal symptoms -> improvement in your cough if asthma is not present. If your nasal discharge is often discolored, then sinusitis needs be ruled out. ...Read more

Mgt: Your illness may still be caused by influenza. Other possible causes include Strep throat. I would suggest having a Strep screening test.

Post nasal: The only one who can make a diagnosis of bronchitis is the one who examines you and listen to your lungs. By your account you have a postnasal drip that flows out more to your throat at night and causes more irritation and coughing. The color of the secretion usually does not mean much. ...Read more
