Q.

Consistent cough

I have had a viral cold and I still have a loose cough. I have done all you say and stayed at home for two weeks. What shall I do? Just cough now and then but it has not gone completely yet. I can't stay at home forever.

Hi

I think it is safe to go back to work, sometimes a cough can continue for a few weeks afterwards. The warning signs are if the cough becomes worse and more frequent and you have other symptoms as well, such as fever, weight loss, loss of appetite - this means that you have to go to the doctor for further tests. Good luck and I hope the cough goes away soon.
