I've had a dry tickly cough for the last 5 days and just started taking warm water with honey. I just wondered how long I should persist before I should think about seeing the doctor (don't want to waste their time). The cough is a lot worse at night and has kept me awake the last two nights.
If you'd had a cold then it should go in a week or so. You might wish to visit our pages on coughs for more information including symptoms to look out for.
Taking a remedy such as Bronchosan may speed things up.
