Got a 'Vegas Cough'?????

Hi all, Vegas Virgin back nearly 2 weeks already.....love, love loved Vegas! Sad I don't know when I will get back again with young children at home.

I will write report soon, but was wondering if anyone got a bad cough while in Vegas??? It happened few days into trip and me &hubby still have it. Chemist said its from air con and oxygen in Casinos etc, but its getting worse tbh.

Was wondering if its usual????

Thanks Davy, Limerick has mixed reviews (you probably know), but is a lovely place!

Thought me and hubby were going mad with this cough!

I don't want to write report as it will make my visit over! :( but then I'm looking forward to writing it also to chat with others! Crazy woman I know! ;)

Get come good cough medicine.

Next time Go see a Doctor instead of a Chemist.

You owe me $150 for the online visit.

Been to Vegas many times and never experienced the cough. I do get worn down for sure but no cough. Sure hope we dont get "free" medicine here that you cant get access to. Start planning for your next trip.

I get a cough from all the cigarette smoke.

Yes, and the doc gave me some Codeine Linctus. She also said that most commercial cough medicine was rubbish.

I started with sinus problems and the chemist at Walgreen recommended saline nasal spray. That helped, but I still have the cough some 2 weeks after returning. Combine Air Conditioning with the non-recycled air on the aircraft ,and it's a recipe for trouble.

That said, a small price to pay!!

Defo a small price to pay for a trip of a lifetime!

If its no better by next week I will see doctor then.

Maybe its just us UK folk it affects more then and the long flights and time change etc contribute to it????

More inclined to believe it comes from the airplane rather than the casino's

Locked up in a self contained bug tube for hours on end can't be good for the lungs.
