i had this issue few months ago,, it was a cough that lasted a month I think. It wasn’t phenmonia , doctor had said he also had same issue as me & it went away on its own. He said the same thing will happen to me and it’ll go away on its own. He was right. But again last wk I got the flu, today barely recovering from the flu feel better now but have this same annoying itchy cough. I’m tired of coughing. I have to go back to work Sunday and I’m worried I’ll be coughing all day at work 12 hours. I took a hot shower and began cough nonstop to point my stomach hurts. I’m always warm inside my home but have to go out to work or buy food. I use sweaters beanie, and it’s still cold there’s still cold air. Hot tea doesn’t cure the cough.
