    Good evening. Sorry about the cough. Must be causing you a lot of discomfort. Is the cough producing sputum? If so, what is the colour? Any other symptoms like fever, chest pain difficulty breathing? Are you eating well? Which antibiotics did you take? Awaiting your response. Thanks

    Hello. Sorry but you didn't answer the questions I asked. Anyway you can do a sputum mcs to find the cause of the cough. If it persists, you may need to do a chest x ray. Have you seen a doctor?

    Ok. Yellowish sputum means there is a bacterial superinfection. You need to do a sputum mcs to find out the bacteria involved and the appropriate antibiotics for treatment. All these will be revealed by the test result. Please do not self medicate. For now take a mild cough Syrup like coflex 10mls 3x daily with VitC 2tabs 3xdaily pending when the result is out. Also make sure to keep hydrated with plenty of water. Take care
