What Can Cause Severe Sore Throat And Cough With No Fever?

I have been sick for two weeks. It started out with a sore throat. Now I have a severe cough, and the sore throat is gone. No fever.

Answer

Hi Karla,

You asked this question a long time ago, but I was wondering if you had a diagnosis and treatment plan you might want to share. I do hope you found relief.

I am not a medical doctor, but I do know that sometimes a virus can cause a sore throat and subsequent cough. Also, nasal drip from sinus infections, acid from reflux, and irritations from allergies can also cause sore throats and coughing.

Only your doctor can make the final diagnosis, but you might be interested in reading these articles for more information:
