Hello. I'm Dr Chip

Any fever or cough?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
i have a cough and a head and chest cold
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 5 months ago.

This sounds like a sinus infection problem

Usually these are viral and run their course in about a week

For now I suggest a saline nasal spray, oral probiotics, zinc lozenges, and Mucinex

But if it continues beyond a few more days you need to see your doctor for an exam and to see if you need a course of oral antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information
