I have been coughing for over a month and i can't seem to get rid of it. It started a week before i went on a cruise in the middle of June. It got worse on the cruise but then a little better by the end of it. Now a month later it is still the same as the last days of the cruise. The coughing does produce phlem, sometimes yellow in color, but mostly white/clear. The coughing does not hurt, it is just bothersome. It does not get worse when i lay down and i haven't been waken up by it. My breathing is normal and not affected by the cough. It just feels like there is something there i need to cough up, but only phlem is produced. I am 20 years old and a non smoker. Let me know what it could be and if I should get it checked out. Thanks very much for your help!
The coughing that i have had is not severe and i have not noticed any other symptoms. I feel fine, but just have a bothersome cough. Allergies could be a possibility, and it makes sense that it started in the summer. Thanks for your input!
