Having Persistent Dry Cough

Answered by: Dr Sashini Seeni

Hi, I am male age 26. I had persistent mild dry coughing since last Thursday. I suspected it was caused by my sinus through post nasal drip last week. On Saturday I did went to clinic for a checkup and the doctor gave me Sedilix DM Linctus Syrup which I had finished but still having mild dry coughing. I am worrying it might be covid-19 even though I do not have travel history out of the country and did not have close contact to any known confirmed cases.
