Cough Symptoms Promptly Evaluated in Medford, MA

Most cough symptoms can be treated at home with over-the-counter medication and warm beverages like tea with honey. A cough is often a symptom of the common cold and will generally go away after a few days. However, if your cough is lingering around for weeks or if it’s accompanied by a fever, green or yellow mucus, shortness of breath, or any other worrisome symptoms, come to PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Medford, Massachusetts, for prompt cough treatment. Our facility is open seven days per week with extended evening hours and staffed with experienced practitioners who can help you find relief from your cough symptoms.

Dry vs. Wet Cough

There are two types of coughs: dry coughs and wet coughs. A wet cough is considered a “productive” cough, as it pushes mucus out of your respiratory system. This type of cough is most commonly associated with colds and the flu. A dry cough, on the other hand, doesn’t bring up any mucus, but since there is inflammation or an irritant in your respiratory tract, you may feel like there’s a constant tickle in your throat. Dry coughs are often caused by upper respiratory infections or other medical conditions, such as allergies, asthma, and GERD.

A dry cough is also one of the most common symptoms of COVID-19. PhysicianOne Urgent Care offers evaluation and testing for COVID-19, so if you’re concerned this virus may be the reason behind your cough symptoms, feel free to check out our testing page to find out more information.

"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."
