I have moderate cough from last 2 weeks and very little sputum which is very rare. Also I have no fever no problem is swallowing but I can feel a little pain when I touch my throat below the jaw area. I had runny nose 2 weeks back but not so much and now that is also gone. So no runny nose as of now . Also I took augmentin 625 2-3 days back and cough was better but now it is back not so much though but it triggers more at night . And having a lot of gas.
