I have had a bad cough for four days I cough so much when I breath eat n my eyes hurt when I cough wut should I do?

See a Doc: You might need an x-ray of your chest. You didn't say if you have had any fever which might indicate an infectious cause for the cough. You will also probably have your blood oxygen level checked. Unless you have some unusual other conditions which needs to be dealt with, treatment will probably be mostly cough suppressants and expectorants to help loosen up the secretions. ...Read more

Cough (Definition)

The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more

Yes: It sounds like he has a cold that has been complicated by pinkeye. Many cases of pinkeye are accompanied by an ear infection, so it is better to have him seen by his doctor. ...Read more

Just found black mold in room. Son gets sick every 2 weeks and bf has itchy watery eyes and bad cough. Is all this caused by the mold?

Hard to say: Take him somewhere else for a few days to see if his symptoms persist. If they stop, then he is reacting to something in the room. Talk to his pediatrician about it. ...Read more

My eyes are yellow where they are suppose to be white. I have a bad cough. My body aches and I feel miserable. I hate doctors so I been trying to sweat?

My eyes are yellow where they are suppose to be white. I have a bad cough. My body aches and I feel miserable. I hate doctors so I been trying to sweat?

Get checked out now: I also try to avoid doctors ;-).
But, when someone has yellow in the white of their eyes, we call it jaundice. It typically means the liver is not functioning, or there is something wrong with the blood cells.
It's not the right time to do the natural healing thing! Let them check you, and make sure there's nothing serious.

Feel better :-) ...Read more

A cold: Sounds like a common cold. Be sure you have enough fluid and electrolyte intake to replenish the amount vomited.

Bad cough and sinus problems for two weeks now, coughing hard right side of head hurts for a week now from it, should I be worried?

Seek treatment: You don't need to be worried, but you do need treatment. This probably started out as a viral syndrome, but now after 2 weeks, it has become a bacterial infection. You need an exam by a doctor and need to be placed on antibiotics and other supportive therapy. ...Read more

I have a really bad cough and running nose and head aces and its really hard to breath. What can I do?

Symptomatic treatmen: The cause and more importantly the treatment for your symptoms depends on the history of how long you have had your symptoms. If it is less than a week you probably have a viral infection and the nasal stuffiness would be helped by oral or intranasal decongestants. The cough can be bronchospasm and an inhaled bronchodilator may be helpful. For the headache I would use Acetaminophen or ibuprofen. ...Read more

I have a bad cold. When I cough in the dark, I see bright, jagged lights. Whether my eyes are open or closed. Is this normal.

I have a bad cold. When I cough in the dark, I see bright, jagged lights. Whether my eyes are open or closed. Is this normal.

Cough and cold: When you cough, the force of the cough is transmitted to your head and your eyes. This causes the vitreous gel inside the eye to move, or jiggle back and forth, causing vitreous traction, and hence...Jagged lights.

If this occurs when you are not coughing, or if the lights persist, then call your local eye doctor for an appointment.

In the meantime, drink lots of chicken soup and rest... ...Read more

Here are some...: Do you just have dry cough or cough up much phlegm? If with dry cough, you need strong cough suppressant like codeine for 3-5 days; if with phlegm, you may need antibiotics, for which you need to be evaluated by local doc. As to urine leak, that is naturally expected if abdominal pressure at coughing exceeds what urinary sphincter can resist and hold. More? Contact www/Healthtap. Com/dr-Lin... ...Read more

Try over the counter antihistamines for your nose and eye drop specifically made for allergies, but in the meantime make an appointment with an allergist.
