How can I help you?
i gues two days back we had a chat

Yes; I do remember our last conversation.
How may I help you today?
phlegm is yellow in colour
and intermittant cough
feeling stuffy in fore head
Have you developed fever?
but feeling tired
Have you seen a doctor or tried medication?
havent gone to doctor
u said steam bath and cough syrup should be ok
should i start any medication?
As I remember, you been with this symptom for the last 2 -3 days without fever.
As I mentioned to you in my last chat, that this seems like a viral infection.
so what should i do now?
And viral infection are known to persist for few days - generally 3-5 days in average individual.
Since steam inhalation have not produced significant improvement,
finding very difficult to breathe
I put on nasal decongestents and oral antihistamines for additional benefits.
should i get into cetrizine?
Since how long have you been using otrivin?
past 2 nights
Otrivin is known to cause rebound effects; in the sense symptoms can be slightly more in the morning after late night use of it.
Therefore you may need to use it twice a day for not more than 7 days.
You can also use cetrizine at night for additional benefits.
no other tablet/medication needed at this point?
If you do not feel better in the next couple of days or if you develop fever additionally, I would urge you to visit a doctor for antibiotics.
thanks for your time
one course means?
Do you have any other questions?
like three times a day for 5 days?
A course of 3-5 days would be ideal if symptoms do not improve in the next couple of days.
The frequency and duration will depend on the antibiotic prescribed.
will get back to you...
It may vary from once a day to three times a day.
Sure, you can get back to me in the next couple of days.
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
