What antibiotic to take for Chronic cough with excessive phlegm and fever?

What antibiotic to take for Chronic cough with excessive phlegm and fever?

See doctor: Since there are many causes for a chronic cough (lasting more than 3 monrh? ) one needs to establish the cause before treating it. Antibiotic does not help a viral infection and its overuse has created MRSA. If you have a persistent fever, you may need to get a bronchoscopy. Since most chronic coughs are caused by more than a single factor, I suggest that you consult an allergist or pulmonologi ...Read more

My 7 year old son has had a chronic dry cough for about 2 1/2 months. I gave him singular did not work, he had chest xrays all good, lungs sound great, they did a "whooping cough test" negative. Cough meds do not work. No fever, acts like a healthy 7 year

The : The cause of a chronic cough can be a very tricky problem to figure out in kids or adults. Common causes include: -asthma -gastro-esophageal reflux -allergies -chronic sinusitis -pertussis (whooping cough) -habit cough -pneumonia or other infectious cause such as tuberculosis it looks like your son's doctor has been doing a good job thinking of these problems and trying to rule out each one with the tests and medication trials they have been suggesting. Most of these problems will cause coughing all night as well as during the day except for habit cough. I've attached a website with some information on habit cough which is very common in kids. I hope this helps. ...Read more

I don't have spleen. Wondering how long I should wait with this cough and no fever to see if go way on own? Cold or pneumonia? Had for 1 week so far

I don't have spleen. Wondering how long I should wait with this cough and no fever to see if go way on own? Cold or pneumonia? Had for 1 week so far

Best to see your doc: Without the spleen as a protective reservoir, you may be at increased risk of certain infections. It is good that you don't have a fever at this time, but if your cough is serious, it's best to see a doctor for an exam, and perhaps an xray to make sure you don't have pneumonia. ...Read more

26 yrs old, he has chest dull heaviness/pressure, persistent dry cough and no fever. Doctor used X-Ray and it looks healthy. After taking levofloxacin, got kind of better but condition fluctuates. ?

26 yrs old, he has chest dull heaviness/pressure, persistent dry cough and no fever. Doctor used X-Ray and it looks healthy. After taking levofloxacin, got kind of better but condition fluctuates. ?

Several thoughts: Consider reactive airway disease, ie. asthma and or asthmatic bronchitis possibly worse from environmental allergies. treatment would be steroid or inflammatory reaction related meds. Did you recently move to this region? Molds, spores, pollen, etc. Good old-fashioned steam often is helpful if related to thickened mucus plugs/thick phlegm in the lungs etc. Could try a steam vaporizer? ...Read more

HI! And if I don't have a cough anymore and have no fever, does it mean that I'll be ok and have nothing to worry about?

HI! And if I don't have a cough anymore and have no fever, does it mean that I'll be ok and have nothing to worry about?

Not sure: Would help if you tell us what you were worried about in the first place. Common symptoms of common cold include cough and fever, but so do hay fever, allergic rhinitis, mononucleosis, strep throat, pneumonia, asthma, etc. If you were worried about any of these conditions, then please let us know if you have other symptoms that could be more specific to these conditions. Thanks for using HealthT ...Read more
