What Could It Be If You Have A Chronic Cough And No Fever
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
My child has hives and a persistent cough, no fever, manifested this morning. any ideas appreciated.
Virus: The most common cause of both hives and cough would be viral infection. New hives can be treated with as needed long acting next generation antihistamine (cetirizine, loratadine, fexofenadine). Be sure to use the appropriate dose. Another potential cause is environmental allergy (in which case antihistamine will also improve cough), but this is less likely to cause the hives. Good luck! ...Read more
Anyone knows what it means to have a chronic cough, headaches all the time, not much fever and nose isnt runny?
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

Weight loss?: If you have not lost weight, it is not an emergent issue and not likely to be serious. However, it would be prudent to consult a pulmonologist- lung doctor for an evaluation. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

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
Head face congestion X 11 days recently turned into a persistent cough fever N/V/D X 1 day temp 101.8 advice?

We also want to avoid antibiotic resistance since more upper respiratory infections are due to viruses. However, in cases such as yours, most of us would lean towards prescribing antibiotics.
