My husband had a choking cough now gone, had for weeks slowly got worse. Then I started with an occasional cough which now is a cough that has gotten worse, doesn’t act like a cold cough, however when I start coughing it makes my nose run and sometimes I get a little mucus from my throat. This has gone on now for 2 weeks. His stopped in about 3 weeks.
