Had a coughing fit all day yesterday, took lemsip and went to bed at five. Got up at eight in evening, took temperature, it was 100.3. Had a good night sleep but woke up with pain in diaphragm because of the coughing!
Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the cough? Are you having any other symptoms?
Customer: Since two days ago.
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Had community acquired pneumonia ending up at Treliske Hospital on 8th September. Saw doctor last Wednesday and he checked my lungs and he said it was clear.

Hi, thanks, ***** ***** your query, will be replying in few seconds please. DrVasavada

Please use calpol for pain. This could be just viral cold or bronchitis. Please use warm sugar+salt water sips and gargling with salt water. No antibiotic may be needed. May wait 4-5 days for self-cure or else see physician for tests.

Good luck.
