Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello I'm Dr Chip
How may I help you with this?
This isn't a telemedicine site
I can get information and give you a probable diagnosis and what to do about it but if you were thinking about a prescription we don't do that here
If your cough is productive what color is the sputum?
And what does the back of your throat look like?
Most likely then it's a viral bronchitis and the coughing has given you laryngitis
Usually that runs its course in about seven days
Unless there are white spots on the back of your throat it isn't likely strep
For now I'd suggest oral probiotics, vitamin C and plenty of liquids along with the nurse's suggestions
But if it goes on beyond seven days then you'd need the walk in clinic to get some antibiotics
Please let me know if you need any more information
