I would suggest continuing the inhaler and breathing treatments. I would add Mucinex OTC to help thin the mucus. Then make an appointment with a physician to get a chest x-ray to determine if you have pneumonia or not. If you do it will require prescription antibiotics. If you have further questions feel free to ask. Once satisfied please rate my answer. Thanks.
