I'm Dr Chaithanya attending you

his can be due to a lung/upper respiratory infection/chronic.

You need to get treated for cough first.

Get an x ray done, and a sputum culture.

Based on the report, antibiotics are given.

Along with the antibiotics, take a chlorhexidine mouth wash and gargle it 4 to 5 times daily for a week.

Complete the antibiotic course.

You will be fine
