Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there.Thank you for your question.I will be helping you out with your concerns today.
Have you been seen for this?
Any tests done?
Do you have any other medical problems?Are you on any medications for anything currently?Please let me know.Regards
Is the cough like an irritating sensation in your throat?
Do you have fever?
Have you been given any antibiotic for this?
Any other medications that have been used to treat this cough?
Please let me know.
I personally think that this is an allergic cough and medications like OTC loratadine and/or fexofenadine may help with your cough.
If those medications do not help, then a short course of steroid in the form of prednisolone will help at a dose of 25 mg twice daily for three to five days.
This session is open for any further questions that you may have. I would appreciate it if you rate me by clicking on one of the rating options at your end on the top right hand corner as that is the only way we, the experts, are credited on here for helping you out.Kindest regards
Take 10 mg once daily to see if that helps.
