Hello,

As per your history, it may be due to allergy. Because most of the time dry cough may be due to allergy. As you have already taken antibiotics and cough syrup and not getting relief, I would suggest you take Tab. Montelukast and Levocetirizine after consultation.

Along with that continue with steam inhalation. Use clean bedsheets and other cloths. Avoid contact with pet animals, dust etc.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shyam B. Kale, General & Family Physician

hello and thanks for the help. age 17 and 145 lbs i have never had a severe illness so im the average healthy teen. sunday i notice a swelling around my neck under my chin.(most likely swollen lymph nodes. i did a little research) monday i felt a sore throat and the swelling increased by tuesday i had a very bad sore throat. sleeping was bad, woke up multiple times sweating profusely and with an UNBEARABLY sore throat. wednesday i knew i had to see a doctor. she said my glands were swollen and prescribed me with Amoxicillin and Clavulanate Potassium tablets. they kind of helped but i was still very sore in the throat and the same swelling. today i woke up and it was just as unbearable, i got hall s cough drops and they helped a little. as the day went on i felt major throat improvement to where i could actually eat but still a swollen gland, about the same size as before. now soreness is back but it is actually bearable. I have a feeling tonight will be just as bad as the past 2, any suggestions to help? Also could i possibly have lymphoma? I did smoke cigarettes daily but i quit 2 days ago. I just want to know what i have and sorry about this whole paragraph but i really appreciate the help:)
