Hi and thanks for query,

It seems like you are suffering from chest infection, you should get sputum culture and sensitivity to identify the organism causing this infection and then should get antibiotics according to C/S report. I would suggest you should see your physician for thorough examination and chest x ray if needed so that proper treatment can be given as you have already tried antibiotics. Meanwhile you can take cough syrup with mucolytic agents like guifenesin.

Let me know if you have further questions.
