Prompt Treatment for Cough Symptoms in Glastonbury, CT

Cough Symptoms Glastonbury CTIf you’re experiencing a persistent cough, you can turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Glastonbury, Connecticut, for immediate care treatment. We were the first urgent care center in the state to be certified by the Urgent Care Association (UCA), and we’re pleased to be affiliated with the Yale New Haven Health System.

Wet & Dry Cough Causes

Do you have a wet cough or a dry cough? They can have different causes, so distinguishing between them can ensure you receive the appropriate treatment. A wet cough (also referred to as a “productive cough”) is one that brings up mucus, and is often caused by the common cold, the flu, bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma, or COPD. If you have a wet cough, you may also experience a runny nose and a postnasal drip.

A dry cough, on the other hand, is one that doesn’t bring up mucus, and often results from irritation or inflammation within the respiratory tract. Some of the most common causes of a dry cough include:

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Croup
  • Environmental irritants (including air pollution, dust, and smoke)
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Laryngitis
  • Sinusitis
  • Tonsillitis
  • Upper respiratory infections (including the common cold and the flu)

Another potential cause of a dry cough is coronavirus (COVID-19). While it’s much more likely that your cough has resulted from one of the conditions listed above, it’s also understandable that you might be worried about the possibility of having COVID-19 given the current state of affairs. If you’re concerned, we invite you to visit this page to learn about our testing options.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
