Persistent cough

Have been coughing for about three weeks now. Had low grade fever and body ache on and off the first week which went away with a round of paracetamol and antibiotics. The cough however still persists with phlegm. Tried benadryl with no effect. Been getting a rusty smell while coughing too, itchiness in chest as well.
