I have a dry cough and my eyes are getting red cause of coughing, what medicine should I take?

URI: You did not say much as a basis for diagnosis other than a dry cough. I suggest you see your doctor.

What is the cause for persistent pharyngitis with TMJ arthritis and unilateral swollen red tonsil. No cough or white spots? Cancer or Infection?

Many possibilities: But the one that I'm most concerned about getting missed is Wegener's granulomatous polyangiitis. Sore throat plus arthritis.

Could zpak or hard cough cause red bump in roof of mouth and pain in tongue? My tongue feels like a muscle pulled since last night and the bump sore.

Could zpak or hard cough cause red bump in roof of mouth and pain in tongue? My tongue feels like a muscle pulled since last night and the bump sore.

Zpack no, cough yes: The red bump on the roof of the mouth and pain in tongue is more due to the hard cough than the zpack. If this continues I'd go back to the dentist to have it evaluated. No worries.
