How Long Does a Cough From Respiratory Illness Last?

It is completely normal and expected to have a cough for 2 or even 3 WEEKS after onset of illness!!! It is also important to emphasize to your patients that they should ONLY seek care if they are having worsening symptoms or have alarm symptoms (i.e. High fever, bloody or rusty sputum, and/or worsening shortness of breath)
