I've had a cough for a few weeks now. It's not painful, i've had no fevers, occassional headache, no sinus pain, a little tired but that't it. I wrote it off as a cold virus and that it will go away. Been dosing up on the Vit C, but it's not going. Now it's an annoying plegmy sounding thing. the thought of dragging all the kid with me to the dr's is such a PITA that I haven't bothered, esp since it doesn't seem antibiotic worthy. BUT we leave for Fiji on Tuesday and I am worried about it not going or getting worse before then. DH has been working heaps and I haven't had a day to rest, at all, and I am always up at least twice in the night - so I am thinking that I REALLY just need to rest, and our first day on hols will probably make me better anyway..... DH thinks I should go to the dr to have it checked out (but he would have the kids at the dr every time they had a runny nose - he has the worry gene from his mum, whereas I have the laid back gene from mine!!!)
So, at the risk of sounding like a 10yo here - should I go to the dr? Or rest, rest, rest and fluids?? I am breastfeeding, so most cold meds are out.
Oh, I have been meaning to take my elevit, to help a bit, but they are out of date by a few months - it wouldn't hurt to take them would it??
