How Long Does Wheezing Associated With Viral Uri Last
I have a viral URI. I keep getting spells where I feel hot, feverish, and clammy, but when I check my temp it's normal. What could cause this?
Mgt: A typical viral upper respiratory illness lasts about 10 days. I would suggest checking your temperature and noting the reading, keep well hydrated and rest. If the symptoms persist, please see your PCP.
Viral URI= cold: Viral upper respiratory infection, which includes nose, throat, eustachian tubes, sinuses. Over 200 viruses can cause cold symptoms, but most common are rhinovirus, corona virus, parainfluenza virus, adenovirus, enterovirus, & respiratory syncytial virus. Tx is symptomatic; antibiotics do not work.See 1 more doctor answer
Can cough, greenish yellow phlegm/mucus and head/ear congestion persist for awhile after a viral URI? Feel better except for these things. No fever.
Maybe: Without an exam, I can only give general information, but classically after an inflammatory process in the upper respiratory area, the body is more susceptible to secondary infection with whatever germs are there. Strep and mouth germs are the most common causes and these often require antibiotics.See 1 more doctor answer
Hi am an asthmatic and have just gotten over a common cold but I have now developed a wheeze and shortness of breath that isn't relieved by inhaler.
See your doctor: You might need revision of your controller therapy or prescription medications, good luck
I have a very deep cough with some wheezing fatigue and aches. Do I need antibiotics or is it the common cold/flu?
No antibiotics: Hello otter65249, if you have cough up to 7-10 days, it' usually viral and you don't need antibiotics. Taking Mucinex (guaifenesin) 600 mg 2 a day as well as emergen c 1 pack 3 a day should help you. If symptoms continue beyond week without improvement, at that stage you should consult physician.See 1 more doctor answer
Common cold or bronchitis? Symptoms: Tired, Lime color mucous, raspy cough, no tight chest, wheezing/gurgling before cough, headache, body ache. Thanx
Possible Bronchitis: It is difficult to say without examination. But it is more likely you are having Bronchitis as you are wheezing And it seems like a viral infection causing your Bronchitis. I advice you drink plenty fluids and consult your Doctor, get checked and treated appropriately. Do not smoke or be around some one who smokes It can also turn into Pneumonia sometimes
I get 'common cold' symptoms for a day after I swim in a pool the last 4-5 times. Sore throat, sinus, sneezing. Could it be a chlorine allergy?
How long is someone contagious for when they have the common cold, flu, or bacterial / viral bronchitis?
Contagious periods: The contagious period differs for each type of infection, even among different viruses! There is a range of values based on different infections ranging from common cold to influenza. These vary from 24 hours to up to 2 weeks! You should ask your physician what infection you have and for how long you will be contagious. Common sense dictates that respiratory viruses travel by cough or sneeze.
Cold: If you have cold symptoms which have lasted more than a month, you should see a doctor and be evaluated. It may be nothing much but maybe it is something more than a cold or series of colds dragging on.
Common cold: To avoid getting an upper respiratory infection practice excellent hand washing. Wash hands frequently & thoroughly with warm water and soap. Do not touch mouth, eyes or hands unless hands are clean. Avoid contact with people who have upper respiratory infections. Cover coughs. Tips: Sore throat – gargle with warm salt water (1/2 tsp salt in 8 oz of water). Get strep test/culture if very sore. >
Many: I break colds into flavors: there are chest colds, nose colds and throat colds, although all common colds can cause all symptoms. Stuffy nose and cough are the most common symptoms, but feeling tired, sore, sick, having sinus pressure or earaches all come with the territory. Many colds start with a sore throat before progressing to stuffy nose and/or cough, but some only involve sore throat.See 1 more doctor answer
Does the beginning symptoms of acute bronchitis include burning dry cough and intermittent wheezing?
After exercise, I started wheezing, coughing. 3 days later with more exercise, I was diagnosed with uri. Got steroid shot & zpack week ago & worse?
I went to the doctors, I have acute bronchitis, why antibiotics for that, and not the common cold?
I have acute bronchitis, from one week I am getting severe wheezing only night times. I am not able to breath properly. I am using forocort inhaler.?
Wheezing w/bronchiti: May have associated reflux, therefore happening at night. Can try ranitidine and or prevecid before bed. Would also elevate head of bed with pillow under mattress (it will help you breathe anyway as compress lungs when lying down). May also be reactive airways due to bornchitis-elevating head of bed helps. F/u w/ doc
