Worried about nagging cough and cold symptoms

About a month ago I started with a mild sore throat. This lasted just a day or two but I developed a cough after that. It first felt like something dripping down the back of my throat and kept me up all night several nights. My cough was very tight and barky. Went to dr who gave me a neb treatment and prescribed zpack and prednisone. Cough hung on and then I developed laryngitis. Dr prescribed another round of prednisone and different antibiotic called something like Cefdnir. Still no better. Still have barky cough and now stuffy nose and run down feeling. Worried it's something more serious. 16 year old son had MRSA on elbow. Could it have anything to do with that? Should I be worried about lung cancer? I'm a 43 year old non smoker. Thanks for any advice!

Re: Worried about nagging cough and cold symptoms

This cough you have sounds familiar. My mom has the cough and has had it for two weeks now. My daughter was sick for a week and it drips in the back of the throat which causes a sore throat. Everyone I know has it. My pedetrician believes it has to do with alleries because of all the rain (mold). Anyway, I have the post nasal drip and stuffy nose. It keeps me up at night.
