My voice has been hoarse and I've been coughing for a whole week and some change. Is it still a cold or something worse?
It started out as a cold a week ago with a sore throat, coughing, and a stuffy nose. Now, it's dwindled down to just a cough, an itchy throat, and a hoarse voice. I also clear my throat every now and then as well. Also, I've been taking cold medicines for all these symptoms, but nothing seems to be working. Could this possibly still be the common cold or is it something much more serious?
