A week ago monday I felt like I may be coming down with a cold. No other symptoms except my nose felt weird. By wednesday my nose started running. Almost a week later I am still blowing my nose like crazy and coughing. I am taking erythromycin since Friday evening. Shouldn't my nose be calming down by now? I am also taking mucinex to thin it, but haven't taken any today. Thanks
Hi, well you can't really get it twice because your immune system will develop immunity to it. But what happens is that you will not really be over the original cold and you can rebound if you do too much too soon.
Hope you feel better soon.
Instead of taking antibiotics every time why don't you try any natural medicine like Sambucol. Actually our family doctor suggest me about this. This one helps me to improve my immune system when I was suffering from flu.
