Cough Symptoms Evaluated at an Urgent Care Center in Manchester, CT

A cough is your body’s way of getting rid of an irritant in your respiratory system. In the case of a wet (or productive) cough, the irritant is mucus that needs to be expelled and is an indication that your body is battling an infection, most likely the common cold or the flu. A dry cough—a cough that doesn’t produce mucus—can also be a sign of infection or that you’re dealing with allergies. In either case of a wet or dry cough, you should be able to find relief from your symptoms with simple, at-home remedies:

  • Sucking on cough drops
  • Taking an over-the-counter cough suppressant
  • Staying hydrated
  • Sipping on tea with honey
  • Taking a steam shower
  • Gargling with salt water

If your cough symptoms haven’t gone away after a few weeks or if you’re coughing up yellow or green mucus and/or have a fever, come to PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Manchester, Connecticut, for cough treatment from experienced providers.

Medical Treatment for Coughs

While the underlying reason for most coughs is a viral infection that will usually get better with time, in certain cases, a bacterial infection is the cause. If so, we can prescribe an antibiotic that will get you on the road to wellness. It’s important to take the entire regimen of antibiotics, even if you feel better before you’re finished, to fully clear up the infection.

"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."
