Suggest remedies for severe cough, sore ribs, low grade fever and fatigue
Is there some dose ' going around'?
Get done chest x ray to rule out lung infection.
Thanks for your question on Health Care Magic.
I can understand your concern.
In my opinion, you should first get done chest x ray to rule out lung infection in her case.
At old age, lung infection is common. And her symptoms like excessive coughing, fever, fatigue, chest pain (pleuritic pain) etc are more suggestive of lung infection.
So first get done chest x ray.
She may need antibiotic and other supportive drugs.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wishing good health to your wife. Thanks.
Take broad spectrum antibiotic like levofloxacin or azithromycin.
Thanks for your follow up question on Health Care Magic. I can understand your concern.
You should take broad spectrum antibiotic like levofloxacin or azithromycin once a day before breakfast for 5 days.
Ask her to drink plenty of fluids orally and keep herself hydrated.
Don't worry, she will be alright.
Hope I have solved your query.
