Having cough from past 4 weeks my mouth has a bad taste, what could be the reason ?
I have been coughing the past 4 weeks. It was a dry cough the first two weeks. My doctor put me on an antibiotic for 7days, and a cough syrup. The syrup helps me to sleep better, and tames the cough; however, it leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. I have a bad taste in my mouth most of the time, and now coughing up white foamy stuff when I do cough. It has a salty taste to it. I have a metalic taste in my mouth continuously no matter what I eat or drink. What could causing this?
Welcome to HCM
The metalllic taste and foamy saliva could be side effects of the antibiotics. Not to worry. If your fever and cough are subsiding, then continue as per the Doctor's orders. Eat healthy. Drink plenty of water.
