Hello dr, I am a woman, 22 y/o,
I am sorry if my questions may annoyed you…
I went to hospital last week (16/3/2020) due to my coughing… and the Dr prescribed me some medicine… and the dr did told me to come again after one week as if my cough tak baik lagi… I xberani keluar rumah due to RMO and the ubat batuk as well dah habis…
The thing is now after one week it is still the same, and whenever i cough my back (behind my abdomen) will be in pain too… what should i do? Should i go back as per the TCA or how?
We understand your worries especially with the development of symptoms indicative but not exclusive of COVID-19.
Chronic cough can be due to many health conditions. These include:
My opinion is for you to revisit the doctor as your cough is not resolving despite treatment. You can take preventive measures such as wearing a mask, frequent hand hygiene and social distancing with other when you go to the clinic.
