Cough

So i have had a cough that started out as a really dry painful cough a month ago and i still cant get rid of it. It is now flaring up again so bad that i cant even lay down to sleep. Should i call for a doctors appointment or just let it run its course

hi

Chronic coughing can affect the lungs. It also sounds like it might be post nasal related. you can try boiling an onion, having 2 tablespoons of the liquid (after it has cooled down) with some honey three times daily for the cough. An doctor's examination would also be beneficial to make sure there is no serious infection.
