Dear Dr Iam Mohamed Malik form Bahrain past 3 weeks i have a cough problem here i consult to DR he suggest some Anty-Biotic medicine i took 10 days still i hav dry cough with guest pain kindly send your suggestion
Hello and welcome to HCM, Dry cough is generally not due to infection. Initially, it is important to suppress the cough. Cough can be suppressed by cough suppressants. Antibiotic does not have any role in dry cough.
Hello Mohemmed Since you are having dry cough from last 10 days . Also there is chest pain and even after 10 days treatment you didn't got relief. Usually such type of dry cough may be due to asthmatic allergic bronchitis , when such case visit I prescribe them to take MONTELUKAST+BAMBUTEROL one or two tablet in days . Since dry cough is usually caused by some allergen , so no need of any antibiotics. Also take dextromethorphan+chlorpheniramine maleat+ guiaphenesin syrup . Hope this will help you. Hot coffee and steam inhalation also provide relief. Good luck.
