User :   Blood test was done one week back. Only ESR was different from normal (23%).
Doctor :  
could you tell me the blood report? and if AEC was included in the report?

raised ESR means that some chronic pathology is going on

Doctor :   ok
Doctor :  
please go back and look for it
Doctor :  
if not done

i would advise you

to get a AEC count done
Doctor :  
which will show why your cough is not yet cured
Doctor :  
and if AEC count is more,
Doctor :  
then you will be put on some other medications.

Take Nefdyl syrup, 7ml 3 times a day

and avoid them
