Doctors Orders

Lungs sound clear, so it's probably viral.

Coughing up greenish stuff says it *might* be turning into a secondary bacterial infection - if it hasn't improved in 3-4 days I have a prescription for anti-biotics which I should try.

In the meantime keep taking the symptomatic relief (Beecham's all in one cold capsules, Hall's mentholyptus cough sweets, Karvol decongestant to inhale).

Here's a sick note for a week, it says "flu".

Asked chemist for something which would help the cough and help me sleep at night, and they recommended taking an antihistamine along with the cold capsules.
