Brief Answer:
Will most likely cure itself, gp lung examination advisable

Detailed Answer:
Dear Patient,

with the described time range of a week so far the infection and cough will most likely still cure itself without antibiotics. It is advisbale though to have your local gp listen to your lung with the stetoscope to rule out bronchitis or pneumonia.
