    head hurts when cough

    My 15 yr old has been coughing for a week. No fever, dry cough, feels OK. but today he said when he coughs it makes the left side of his head hurt. Guess he needs to go to doctor tomorrow. Any comments.....No stuffy nose, nothing...just cough..............

    Re: head hurts when cough

    I just went through this...I had a really bad sinus infection and mine lasted a month. It started with a slight headache on one side and really hurt if I coughed. There is a medicine over the counter called Mucinex and it used to be prescription called Muciphen. It wil go in there and start to loosen all the yuck up and the pressure will ease up. Mine eventually dripped into my ear but relieved itself after two days of pressure and junk coming out. It never hurts to go to the doctor but unless he's having other strange symptoms they will probably chalk it off to a virus. Good luck and hope he feels better soon. Ps you can take Mucinex with Motrin ( Motrin is an anti inflammatory and Tylonol is not.) FYI.

    Thank you so much for responding. I sort of thought it was sinus or nasal dripping down throat and making him cough. i will try the Mucinex. Thanks again.............isn't this board great?
