Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Sorry to hear about your health

How old are you ?

Do you have fever as well?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
i am 65 i never had a fever

Thanks for the details

I think you should take a cough suppressant like Mucinex or Robitussin to help relieve the cough

I expect you to get better in few days

In case if after one week you still stay symptomatic then you must see the doctor as you will need inhalers containing bronchodilators and steroids and an antibiotic

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. I will be glad to help you always.

Hopefully that will help with the cough
