      throat specialist to recommend? been coughing for months

      I had been coughing for months since i don't remember when... wet cough, with sticky phlegm. At first i thought it wld go away itself, plus i was too busy with work. I have the habit of avoiding cold, fired, and socalled "heated" food, and I also drink a lot of water on daily basis (>2L per day), but the cough seems to become worse, now i am a bit scared.

      I visited a few clinics and finished the syrups/pill doctor gaves, but it didn't really work.

      any throat specialists to recommend? thanks a lot!

        actually if you have been coughing for months, it's best to go back to the previous doctor and tell him the situation. Some may send you for X ray or any other check ups. Because when you change the doctors, every first time they see you they will prescribe you some medicine first. But since this cough has been with you so long, another treatment should be done.

        Previously, i cough for 2 months, and with no choice i visit the polyclinic and dr sent me for chest x ray and my lungs are swollen as a result of long term coughing. So it's best to visit the previous doctor or tell the doctor it has been months and you are worried.

          Thanks Jess!

          Can I see a specialist without visiting the previous doctor? cos the doc i saw last time was damn arrogant... sorry to ask this kind of question as i seldom visit doctors, not really familiar with the procedures...

            Then you might want to visit those specialist at Mount Elizabeth. Not sure whether this helps : (an example)

              If you are changing docs, it's best to take down what medicines you took and tell them at the next visit.

              You're having chesty cough. Takes longer to heal. It's caused by lungs inflammation. What colour is your phlegm now?

              Anyway, please seek treatment immediately. Prolonged coughing is very bad for the lungs. You need medicine to get better. Avoiding fried food wouldn't cure you.

                Thanks Vivacoomz, i will see a specialist asap. My phlegm is yellow, and sticky. Once or twice a day (usually in afternoon) i cough very badly to get rid of the phlegm and I am fine the rest of the day.

                Thanks again Jess, I will see Dr. Chan next week.
