please. I had this cough for a month already its on and off. Plus I wheeze when I exhale as well I dont know what this could be. I know Im allergic to pet dander and have cats at home, I have asthma and post nasal drip could this be a factor. I just dont want this to be anything serious no pain in chest or coughing out blood.
Expert:  DR.EHTISHAM replied 2 months ago.

It is most probably an infection which is the reason for exacerbation of your asthma

You should take an anti-histamine like cetirizine and a nasal spray like Flonase

This should help in relieving the symptoms

Good luck
