Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
how old are you?
do you smoke?
have you tried mucinex, robitussin, delsym cough medications over the counter?
you need to stop smoking
you have to go see a doctor and get a chest CT scan or xray
and sputum culture
you may need a course of antibitoics
we can't give out prescriptions for antibiotics online to clients we can't see and examine.
you can see a doctor at a free health clinic
or you can go see a doctor at a university medical center
they treat patients there with no insurance
you should apply for medicaid or www.healthcare.gov for medical insurance.
you don't want to suffer which can allow this potential lung infection to get worse which could eventually land you in the hospital if you don't get it treated earlier.
