Dear customer,

Thank you for information.

As per the symptoms, it seems that you are suffering from respiratory tract infection.The symptoms of cough , difficulty in breathing and choking sensation in ear likely to be due to the infection.It may be due to bacterial or viral cause.The oral antibiotics like septran, augmentin, ofloxacin may be needed to control the bacterial infection.

You should have the blood counts, chest x-ray, etc done and consult the doctor to know the underlying cause.

The treatment is according to underlying cause.The other causes of cough should also be ruled out.

Let me know if you haave any doubt.

Thank you
