7 week cough

    I'm not sure where to post this but I have had a cough that's lasted 7 weeks.

    It was a dry cough that went on for 4 weeks but has since morphed into a chest infection. I took a dose of strong antibiotics which seemed to kill the dry cough but left me with this.

    I'm now thinking of going to the doctor a third time. I missed about 10 days of work in January already. I was pretty exhausted with the dry cough

    Anybody else had this??

    I had identical I got it on a flight.

    I went to doc twice on 2nd visit he prescribed antibiotics and steroids and they cured mine.

    I’d enquire with GP about referral for chest x-Ray to be extra cautious
