Washington: If you got a pesky cough and it hasn`t gone away in a week, you shouldn`t fret as a new study has found that the average cough lasts 18 days.The problem is that people may believe that acute coughs - otherwise known as acute bronchitis-last about 10 days shorter than that, leading researchers to believe that many of them unnecessarily ask their doctor for antibiotics.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that acute cough illness makes up two to three percent of doctor visits, and more than half of them leave with an antibiotic prescription.
