Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,
It sounds like you are having an acute flare up of reactive airway disease.
While the X rays, may be necessary, I would also recommend using an albuterol inhaler 2 puffs every 4-6 hours as needed for the next 3-5 days.
If you do not improve then antibiotics and/or steroids might be needed to alleviate your cough.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating (bonus appreciated) as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.
Is there anything else I can help you with?
If not, please don't forget to leave a rating, thanks!
