I'm not a doctor but how about Nyquil they have dayquil or nyquil. Drink plenty of fluids such as orange juice and add Vitamin C to your everyday diet. Also a good bowl of chicken soup with noodles or rice always seems to help alot. Hope you feel better real soon.

I found that taking Vicks Vapor Rub and putting it on the bottom of my feet and wearing warm socks helps. It sounds crazy but others I've told say it works. Even if it works I would still go to the Doctor. This sounds like some thing is happening in your body. Good Luck

Marshmallow root tea soothes sore throats and eases coughs. Make sure you are not allergic to it, most people aren't. Mixing the root with echinecea is a wonderful cold remedy. Go to your local natural health store and ask them about the two and they will also have more information for other remedies.

My advice, don't drink cough syrups that were not prescribed by a physician. Go to a physician and have that checked immediately. There are certain coughs that cannot be treated by cough syrups. Other coughs can be a symptom of an underlying disease. A cough is usually a symptom, not a disease or ailment.

I am not a doctor, but as I know, if you are too bad, you should go to the hospital and have an injection. It is the most quick way to remedy. General medicine do not work any more, coughing too long is not for your health. samll problem maybe lead to be serious. Take care of yourself.

You should try pine syrup or squeeze a black radish and drink the juice. Or get pills made of mint or ivy. They work everytime. I hope you get better! And don't use the air conditioning for the next few days, even though it's very hot.

You should go to see the doctor quick. Nowadays there are a lot of new diseases like H1N1 and other respiratory problems which is difficult to detect if they are any different with ordinary coughs and colds. I had a serious cough in the past also, but no fever and colds. Every time I cough, green ugly ** came out from my throat. I took cough syrups and ate paracetamol, but nothing seemed to work. I got scared because I started losing my voice and my cough was getting worse. So I went to the doctor, and he told me that I had a bacteria infection. He gave me antibiotics, and I was cured in two weeks. Thankfully I went to see the doctor or else I may not be cured at all and it may develop into more serious illness if not treated quickly. I hope you get well soon. Good luck!
