100 Day Cough?

Ask a Question

Have you caught or know of anyone who has had the one hundred day cough? It's an unusual name for a bug I know, but it certainly is doing the rounds in my neighbourhood here in Essex. Do you have any advice for those suffering?

It's doing the rounds where I am. Nothing works to get rid of it. Sounds nasty to be honest

Yeah I believe so, I think my work colleague has had this/still got this and been on antibiotics that have done nothing. I have a cough myself which happens more regularly at the moment so who knows possibly me too. I live Portsmouth area

Yes ,got rid of it about 2 weeks ago , lasted about 5-6 weeks for me , tried all sorts of cough medicines and tablets none seem to shift it . Apart from the initial couple of days when I felt ill with flu like symptoms , it didn't bother me that much just bouts of coughing although it worse at night in the first few weeks and often kept me awake, which made me tired and irritable next day.

Yes I have a friend that's had a cough lingering now for a couple of months, just won't shift.

Yes, I believe I had it starting November. After 4 weeks I tried to get a doctor appointment without luck. My husband, bless him, mid January, went to the doctor surgery waiting for them to open to get me an appointment. The antibiotics worked eventually

My husband had a cough for a couple of months. It has gone now but took ages to shift and nothing was helping to get rid of it.

My MIL had it. She felt fine just a constant hacking cough. Took about 7 - 8 weeks to finally shift.

I've got asthma and emphysema, it comes with a constant daily cough, so I wouldn't know if I've had it or not lol
