I was coughing really bad a few weeks ago and again just took some robitussin and it went away after a few days. This past weekend, again, I started coughing like crazy and still am. I went back to Walgreens and bought another thing of robitussin. On top of this my allergies have been terrible since last week. I always get bad allergies starting around mid-July and it lasts until September/October.
Am I the only one or is this just a really bad year for colds/sore throats/allergies?
I'm a physician assistant. I am surrounded by many sick people every day. I was sick once last year, and that was on vacation. It's you.
Hand sanitizer should be your best friend. Keep a bottle in your pocket and use it every 30 minutes.
