Bad Cough

Hi,

I had a cold for 2 days then a cough started on Saturday night and I still have it. It constantly feels like there is something on my chest. I went to the doctor he said its not got to my chest but if it doesn't go in 3 days take Amoxicillin its only been 2 days shall I take it, will it help. What if it isn't an infection will it harm me to take this.

I'm coughing so much my stomach hurts. Cough mixture hasn't really been working.


Thanks

Re: Bad Cough

You may have post nasal drip which will definately cause a cough as it is mucus dripping down your throat and could go into your chest. If the cough medicine isn't helping then I would take the antibiotics. If it is a true infection the antibiotics should help but if it is viral it won't. Taking the meds. won't harm you but as I said, if it isn't a true infection they may not get rid of it either.

Good luck and feel better...JJ...
