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.

Dear Friend, Any cough with fever for three weeks needs to be taken seriusly. Pleae get your gene xpert test done from a good lab and update me. I wish you a speedy recovery.
