Hi just wondering if this will get worse, or will fade out after a while. Colin

I am sorry to know that. Nowadays lots of our patients are having these symptoms after getting COVID. This cough is definitely irritating but its indicating that your body is clearing of infection and going towards healing.

I will advise you on a herbal remedy in which you will take one teaspoon of honey with nigella seeds just a pinch of it.

I am more concerned with the yellow mucus from my nose which has an unpleasant smell.

Also taking steam inhalation twice a day might help you a bit to get rid of this annoying cough.

Yellow mucus is indicating that you might need antibiotics.

Sometimes sinusitis happen after a covid infection.

I would have to wait until Monday to see my Doctor.

Till that time I think these home remedies will definitely help.
