Patient :Hello, starting yesterday I had a bad cough that would lead to spitting up phlegm(yellowish). Eventually my throat started to hurt and now when I woke up this morning it feels very dry and sore. It hurts when I cough. My nose is slightly congested, it barely bothers me. Can you tell me what this might be and what otc medicine I can buy to help?
Symptoms: Coughing, phlegm, sore dry throat, slight nose congestion, and pain when I cough, or sneeze.
