Well it all depends on a few other symptoms which you may be having, like

If you are having fever , or yellow colored mucus then it is likely that yOU ARE HAVING LOWER RESPIRATORY TRACT INFECTION AND WILL NEED ANTIBIOTICS ALONG WITH medications for cough like syrup benadryl 2 teaspoon twice a day.

If there is no fever and mucus is white , then you wont need an antibiotic and syrup benadryl along with steam inhalation 2-3 times a day will help you.

If you are having cough for more than 2 weeks , you must meet your doctor to rule out causes for chronic cough like tuberculosis , etc.
