What causes dry cough post recovery from cold?

default
Posted on Fri, 6 May 2016
Question: My boyfriend just got over a cold that included a cough and nose congestion. His cough began to return and he said it is sort of a dry cough.
The weather went from being 70 degrees to 40 over the last few days with a hard rain for 2 days.

What could be wrong? What can he take to remedy his cough and should he go see a doctor being that his cough has returned so soon after the cold.

Brief Answer:
Your boy friend may be suffering from the rhinitis with pharyngitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mam,
I have gone through your query; it suggest that your boy friend most probably may be suffering from the rhinitis with pharyngitis.

In this condition I personally suggest
1. Tablet Azithromycin 500mg once a day.
2. Tablet Fexofenadine with montelukast once in the day.
3. Hexidine mouth gargles.

Better to consult with ENT specialist before taking these medicines.
