I have finished antibiotics after 10 days, I was prescribed

Resolved Question:

I have finished antibiotics after 10 days, I was prescribed them for pneumonia in my right lung. I feel fine and have returned to work after almost 2 weeks off, but I still have a cough. I don''t have insurance and would rather not have to see a Dr. Is this normal? I feel great but cough still bad

It is possible to be left with a dry tickly cough, especially if there is any post nasal drop however if you are still coughing up colored sputum, or you have pain when breathing in or out then you need to return to your doctor.

Also any fever will require you to be checked out again.
