Treated last month for suspected early pneumonia. New illness, day 10 with mostly dry harsh cough. Yesterday had 100.7, chills, lung aches when inhaling. Fever gone today so far. Wait or see doc?
Always difficult to. judge. Absence of green phlegm goes against most bacterial basis for bronchitis/pneumonia but still consistent with mycoplasma &/or viral, common in adults (not in hospitals). In all cases an issue of inadequate immune system protective function (+ symptoms from immune system response). Antibiotics (if used) only tactical chemical warfare to which bacteria ?ingly resistant, thus hit hard if use.
