I have been coughing up mucous since Christmas and have had been picking up different virus's from my grandaughter since then. I no sooner get over one spate of coughing then another one starts. With the last lot which started about six weeks ago I have had a course of Amoxycillin and something stronger (which the doctor said probably would not make any difference because it was viral). I did not have a chest infection but was coughing day and night and very breathless. I went back to the doctor two weeks ago and was put onto 40 mg of predisolne for five days. This helped a bit but when the course was over I continued to cough. I have been taking my ventolin from anything from 2 - 6 hours for a while. I am still wheezing quite a bit (not as bad as I was and just wondering when this is all going to stop. I cannot go out and do exercise because of the weather because I always feel worse afterwards. Feeling really low at the moment and would really like to be able to manage this properly so I do not get these flareups
