Hello, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
The flu and cough you are experiencing may be an upper respiratory infection. Upper respiratory tract infections can occur due to viral, bacterial and fungal infections, and have symptoms such as:
Itching and sore throat Difficulty swallowing Cough Runny nose
However, some conditions can also cause the flu and cough that you experience, including:
Tonsillitis GERD Rhinitis Excessive use of voice and so on
You should first consult a doctor, to find out the cause of the symptoms you are experiencing so that an appropriate examination and treatment can be carried out, especially if you are breastfeeding. The doctor will conduct a thorough interview and examination. It is likely that blood tests will be carried out in a laboratory if needed.
Some things you can do for now include:
Drink plenty of water Sufficient nutrition and daily fluids Gargle with warm salt water Avoid things that can trigger throat irritation such as cigarette smoke, alcohol, spicy and oily foods Get adequate rest Cough medicine that is safe for nursing mothers
