Hi, I have a cold which got to my lungs
Probably a muscle strain due to cough, follow the advice below.
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Muscular strain is very common while coughing.
I would recommend using anti inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen 400 mg three times a day.
I would also recommend using an anti inflammatory cream such as Voltaren cream.
Heat compresses and stretching exercises can also be very helpful.
I would also suggest taking an over-the-counter medication that contain Dextromethorphan, a cough suppressant to help with the cough.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
