Phlegm Cough Turns Into A Dry Cough?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Phlegm is mucus that runs along the respiratory tract. Phlegm is one of the body's defense mechanisms against foreign objects, bacterial infections, and dust and smoke. Phlegm can also appear when someone has asthma.
The drugs given to you contain generic cefixime, paracetamol and ketotifen which are respectively antibiotics, heat-reducing and painkillers, and antihistamines which function to reduce the symptoms of cough.
As for your cough that turns into a dry cough, actually none of these drugs has a direct use for phlegm cough medicine. So it really doesn't matter if you want to try using over-the-counter medicines for 1-3 days. In addition, support also with adequate rest, multiply the consumption of warm water, avoid cigarette smoke, dust and pollution, and if it turns out your complaints are permanent, check your condition again to the general practitioner for further examination. So, hopefully answering your question.
