Hey, I have had a cough for about two weeks and was wondering if I should get it checked out. It is a deeper cough, coming from my chest, I have some congestion but not much, I have a decent amount of mucus build up, and sometimes the coughing can inflict mild pain in my chest.
It seems to have gotten very slightly better but not by much.
A cough that is not improving, results in colored phlegm and some chest discomfort, especially if you are experiencing chills, nightsweats or fever, should be checked out with an examination in clinic. Unfortunately, we are closed until Sept. 23 so you would need to seek care at one of the community clinics.
