Clear Up Annoying Cough Symptoms With Treatment in Chestnut Hill, MA

Cough Chestnut Hill MA

Occasional cough symptoms are not usually a cause for concern. In fact, everyone coughs from time to time. A bout of dry coughing can be triggered by many things, including allergies, post-nasal drip, or the inhalation of an irritant, such as tobacco smoke or chemical fumes. What’s more, many illnesses such as the common cold and flu are accompanied by a wet cough, which is your body’s natural response to respiratory irritation. By forcing mucus, dust, and other irritants out of your nasal passages, a cough helps clear your airways and protect your lungs from infection. And that’s a good thing.

Do You Need Treatment for a Persistent Cough?

Most cough symptoms clear up on their own within a week or two. If yours do not, you can seek treatment at PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. And don’t delay. A constant cough can interfere with your concentration, productivity, and rest. Then, as you become sleep-deprived, you will start to feel tired during the day, which can further affect your concentration and productivity. Therefore, if left untreated, coughing can create a vicious circle. So, you’ll want to nip it in the bud.

Additionally, an unrelenting cough could be a sign of a potentially serious viral infection, such as pneumonia, bronchitis, or COVID-19. For these reasons, we suggest that you seek medical attention for a cough that:

  • Lasts longer than two weeks
  • Produces thick, greenish-yellow phlegm
  • Produces pink-tinged mucus
  • Is accompanied by fever
  • Causes difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • Causes wheezing

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

Patient
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!"

Patient
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."

Patient
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."
