Has someone you love had a cough for 3 weeks or more?
Coughs are common enough, but if you know someone whose cough has lasted 3 weeks or more, you need to get them to their doctor as it might be something more serious.
The sooner itís checked out, the sooner and easier it can be treated.
What to look out for:
• A cough that lasts more than 3 weeks
• If a cough changes over time
• Complaints that their chest feels different or becomes painful
• They are coughing up any blood
Remember, if someone you know has had a cough for 3 weeks or more,
better get them to the doctors.
