Resolved Question:

I've had a productive cough for over 2 weeks with no fever. Color was yellow, but now is clear, however, the cough continues. Should I go the the doc and get antibiotics or is it a really long lasting cold.

When cough lasts , for 2 weeks or more , it should always be evaluated by doctor.

This can be due to-

1. Airway infection- either bacterial or viral

2. Asthma.

Doctor will advice tests- chest X-ray, blood test to check the infection. Accordingly management will be done. So please do not ignore, and rush to your doctor.
