Hi

Welcome to just answer

A persistent cough which worsens specially in morning is most likely allergic. Since infection and TB are ruled out, allergic cough seems like the most probable cause.

You would ideally need to be evaluated by a Chest specialist for a detailed investigation and evaluation. You might need long term anti-allergy medicines and even inhalers if the allergy is affecting the lungs as well.

In the meantime you can try taking oral Levorid (available over the counter) and drink lots of warm fluids.

Hope this information is helpful

Regards

Breathing problem again can be due to chest allergy or due to a cardiac problem. I would recommend you to get a cardiac evaluation done if not been done before.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
