My names Crystal and i wanted to ask. A little after

Customer Question

Hello, My names Crystal and i wanted to ask. A little after Halloween i had gotten a Small Cold. The Cold it now pretty much completely gone. But I still have the Occasional Stuffy and drippy nose. I also have this dry cough. But every so often it causes me to dry heave and almost puke. But i've never puked yet. Is there maybe anything you can suggest I do or take in order to help me out.. Coughing this much at work it not fun. Especually when im helping a customer and i start coughing up a storm. I dont really have any Chest pain or ever throat Pain. Mostly just Head headache Cuz im coughing so much. Thank you.

Hi Crystal

For now I'd suggest Mucinex and a saline nasal irrigation system

If that doesn't help after a week you need to see your doctor since this may be a sinus infection that requires antibiotics to resolve

Let me know if you need any more information please
