I had a bad cough which since has improved but
Probably an upper respiratory tract infection,follow the advice below.
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Your symptoms seem to be related to an upper respiratory tract infection.
I suggest using anti-inflammatory medication such as Acetaminophen 500 mg three tablets a day.
I also recommend using a cough suppresant such as Robitussin Cough every eight hours.
I suggest to drink liquids and rest.
If the symptoms continue I suggest to do a lung x-ray to exclude a lung infection.
Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
