Handling Of Cough With Phlegm That Turns Into Dry Cough
Good morning doctor. My 14-year-old child has a cough with phlegm, but it is difficult to expel phlegm, so I give medicine to cough up phlegm, but now the cough is dry. I want to go to the doctor but now I have to go home. What should I do
Good evening Thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
