Why do i keep coughing? I went to the doctor and they said i ok. It's uncontrollable coughing fits. I can't talk or barley breathe when i do
14 year old girl, I've had this cough since Wednesday, i have this cough almost every 2 hours. when i have it it starts out with a slow cough, and then it escalades into me trying to hold it in (because i was in class and was embarrassed) the coughs are not wet coughs, and when i have coughing fits they last about 10 mins. i also don't know if i have asthma if that has anything to do with it. I went to the doctor on Wednesday (just a walk in clinic) and they said i was perfectly fine. If it has anything to do with my tonsils: well they are very large and almost touching, always swollen. I get strep/tonsillitis almost every 2 months. (just a little extra information, i don't know if coughing is associated with tonsils) and also what can i do to rid of this horrible cough?
