Cough and cold that will not go away

Hi all,

I'm getting paranoid about this now, I started with a nasty cough in mid july and developed a cold about a week later, this cold lasted ( with the cough) until end of august I had abiout 2 cold free days with very little coughing then it all came back and have been coughing , feeling tight chested and blowing my nose constantly since.

I've been to the docs twice had amoxicillin which didn't so anything dr was sure it was a viral thing, went again and he gave me a delayed script for erythromycin which I finally started yesterday.

Any ideas why this is going on for so long?

I have pretty much had exactly what you describe. Plus hacking up massive horrible thick phlegm. Haven't been to docs though as i haven't got temp etc so I know he will just say 'its a virus, go away'. It's getting on my nerves a bit now though.

Yes constant thick phlegm too! How long have you had it for?
