Having a cold for 10 days with no sign of improvement
My son started going to daycare in mid-February.
Since then I've been almost sick continuously.
First I got a cold/flu that developed into bronchitus at end of February. The cough never went away.
Then 10 days ago, I became sick again (sore throat, running nose, pressure in my face due to clogged sinus,
coughing with thick-white phlegm).
Normally cold/flu goes away about a week. But this time, it STAYS.
Today is day 10, and I'm still feeling almost the same symptoms which began last week.
I'm afraid the bronchitus has developed into something else, more chronic.
What's your advice? Should I see a doctor? I plan to if I don't feel better next week. It would have been 2 weeks.
