Question: I started having cold symptoms 15 days ago and visited my PCP 11 days ago. He said it was Common Cold and to wait it out. He checked for flu and was negative. I still have a very bad dry cough( its never been wet) pretty frequently(every 10 minutes) with slight sore throat from the cough. Also bad nasal congestion all day and nausea/vomiting in the mornings. Has this developed into some other type of illness that I could get medication for if I went back to him? Thanks

Brief Answer:
Yes, you should definitely consult doctor again.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on HealthcareMagic.
I can understand your concern.
By your history and description, possibility of bacterial infection is more.
Bacterial infection of throat is common after cold.
And your persistent symptoms are suggestive of bacterial infection more.
So better to consult your doctor and rule out bacterial infection.
You may need antibiotics and other supportive drugs.
Drink plenty of fluids orally and keep yourself hydrated.
Do steam inhalation and warm water gargles 5-6 times a day.
Don't worry, you will be alright.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.

Hi. I ve got a head cold and am suffering from nasal congestion, runny nose (the mucus is clear) and body aches. I take 25 mg of amitryptilyn at night, along with topomax and a muscle relaxer for headaches. Can I take an over-the-counter decongestant if I am taking these other medications?

Hi , I m a 33 yr Male and have had a stuffy nose for as long as I can remember, probably about 65% all the time, I have never had the energy it thought I should, and constant ringing in my ears that Im used to. I can sleep throught the night no worries though. I have assumed that the lack of energy was just a motivation thing, I have been checked and are healthy. Is possible that the stuffed nose could be affecting how I feel day to day? Should I bother with an ENT?
