Customer Question
Thursday I was exposed...

Thursday I was exposed to something that caused excessive sneezing and runny nose. Now I hear crackling and gurgling im my lungs with a very dry gagging cough

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the cough? Are you having any other symptoms?

Started Thursday. Began as sneezing and runny nose. Went into allergy type symptoms but now just the dry gagging cough and gurgle and cracking in lungs

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nope. I take no meds. Exercise. Pretty healthy

Any fever?

No fever
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 3 months ago

Sounds like a viral sinus infection with post nasal drip

That usually runs its course in a week or so

For now I suggest oral probiotics, zinc lozenges and a saline nasal irrigation system along with benadryl or Claritin

If it doesn't stop after another five days you need to have your doctor check it out to see if you need a course of oral antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
