My friend has cough from 1 month it doesn't happens regular but whenever he coughs he suffers a lot.

Any cough lasting longer than 2 weeks need to be tested for afb to see if it is tb and your friend needs a checkup. If normal, it can be an allergic cough or infective.

Even I am medical student I had suspect a lot of disease that have symptom voice change and had list reflux of acid from the stomach (GERD), Laryngitis. Chronic sinusitis, allergy, tuberculosis But unfortunately had only this disease GERD so that I suspected. After I take Antacids with two weeks I had no get an change. So I had visited jigjiga referral Hospital in there department of radiology. They seen An initial chest radiography was abnormal.
