Do I just have Allergies or could it be more serious?

 

Allergies like hay fever can cause a chronic dry cough. Sometimes patients are sensitive to other allergens such as dust, pet dander, pollen and mold to name a few, that will also cause the patient to develop a chronic cough. Sometimes patients will develop allergic or acute bronchitis that can last for days or even weeks. Patients with acute bronchitis can cough up yellow or green mucus or they may have a fever and chills. Seeing a medical professional can help with diagnosis and treatment of acute bronchitis. The medical provider at My Urgent Care Clinic will listen to your lungs, check additional symptoms and may order a chest x-ray to determine any other problems with your lungs. Treatments are available to help patients with acute bronchitis open up the airways and breath easier. Bronchodilators that relax muscles around the airways and steroids that can help with swelling in the airways are some of the treatments available for the medical provider to prescribe in order to treat your cough. Getting a quick diagnosis and starting a treatment is the best way to address a cough whether it is acute bronchitis or something else. The providers as My Urgent Care Clinic are available every day of the week from 8am to 8pm to help you. We are located at 910 River Road in Boerne and welcome our patients without an appointment. Getting diagnosed and treated quickly can get you back to breathing and feeling better.
