What could it be

Dear customer,

What do they have?

Cough
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It comes and goes the ache

Dear customer,

Thank you for your reply.

OK. All of you had or are having a harmless viral infection. Cough can linger for a few days even after the infection is cured. This is not worrisome. The ache is muscle soreness due to coughing and is not alarming or suspicious of any other condition. You all should start drinking honey mixed in warm water two times a day to reduce the cough. A warm compress in the location of the ache will reduce the pain and soreness. You can safely relax and there is no need to worry about this.

Thank you!

Okay what causes the flank ache and above
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Can a cough do that to you!

Dear customer,

Thank you for your reply.

Yes, the cough does involve these muscles and all the muscles in the abdomen. So, this is expected and common with a cough.

Thank you!
