Here are my symptoms:

2) Occasional white phlegm, especially during waking up in the morning until noon.
3) Burning sensation.
4) Already 3 weeks. No improvement in condition.

Subscription fr GP
1) Cough syrup containing ammonia, dextromorphane (i always request for the one which doesnt make me drowsy)
2) Bromhexine HCl
3) EES
4) Ascorbic acid

I have visits GP 3 times. No improvement at all. Was trying the website diagnosis but very confusing with too much information. I have these at least 3 times this year alone, but never b4. (3 seems to be unlucky no. here). Please help me! is my condition is light sickness and tell me what's the once-for-all solution. Or is it grave and what is it? I am 27 yrs old fr Malaysia, i also have another friend which have exactly same symptoms. The cough give discomfort to me and, my colleagues in terms of the sound produced.

  • That sounds like an allergy. Perhaps someone has been spraying their trees with a new brand of pesticide? Since it affects your friend as well it seems unlikely to be something in your home but check anyway - make sure you haven't changed cleaners recently. Look to places you both visit equally and try to change your habits for a while.
