Persistent Cough

When do you meet a doctor?

A persistent cough needs proper medical attention, as it might be an indication of a deeper problem. It’s important to consult a doctor if:

  • You cough up blood.

  • You have an interrupted sleeping pattern due to continuous coughing.

  • You’re running a high fever.

  • You have accompanying symptoms like breathlessness, wheezing or hoarseness.

  • You lose weight without exercising/dieting.

  • You have chest pain due to the cough.

  • The cough affects your school or work.
