Welcome to Just answer !
did you take any medication for cough ?
hello are you there..
did you have fever also along with cough?
No medication. I did niot have a fever.
so what did you take for cough?
any hoe remedy?
or is it just going away on its own?
any home remedy you took for cough?
Havent taken anything. it's been going away on its own.
it seems like a normal general weakness which occurs post infection or it is seasonal change that is causing some temporary changes in health..
it is more likely malaise post seasonal change..
you shall wait for another 3-4 days this will eventually go away on its own like the cough is going away..
meanwhiile continue taking liquids ,especially lemonade to keep your self hydrated and also take frequent small meals with lots of fruits in them so that your body has enough minerals and vitamins to compensate for your weakness.
So do not worry this will go away ... on its own..
meanwhile continue to do what has been suggested..
do you jave high blood pressure and diabetes ?
are you on any other medications?
if yes kindly mention them ?
are you there..
The drymouth and trouble swallowing is what bothers me the most
do you have pain in throat ..
sneezing and cold as well..
no pain at all
I have not been diagnosed with Diabetes or blood pressure
do one thing..
it seems like a throat infection , which may be bacterial or viral infection..
this often causes difficulty in swallowing , itch sensation in the throat , dry mouth and throat
and this could also be due to allergy ?
so what you need is to get yourself started on anti allergic drug like benadryl..
do you have that ..
or you can get it from your pharmacy..
yes....how about Claritin?
that also can be taken
Can the infection cause light headedness
since it does not cause drowsiness..
but to me it appears that the light headedness is because of the general weakness
that is there ..
associated with infection..
since you do not have fever , so this seems more likely an allergy
rather than infection..
ok...hope this helps. I just wanted to make sure it is nothing serious
if after taking this claritin for 3 days ..
if there is no improvement at all..
then do not waste any time ..
get your blood work up such as haemogram and esr
and get started on a 3-5 day course of anti biotic of either azithromycin or a cephalosporin
from yor family doctor ..
but as of now
start on claritin
and hydrate your self
with liquids like lemonade and juices
but not too cold
at slightly cooler temperature than room temperature.
in another 3 days this shall go away
with your cough..
i hope this helps..
Wish you all the best..
