Let me brief you now.
Cough is definitely a disturbing symptom. But by itself it is it not always concerning.
We look at other features to explain the type and cause.
Your description is not consistent with any of the known causes.
In such cases, I need to ausculate your lungs to determine the causes and its treatment.
Since you have not seen a doctor yet,
I urge you to visit a physician.
He should examine the chest and if needed will test the sputum sample before prescribing the right treatment.
I encourage you to cough and spit the sputum out every time.
this will clear the cought doctor?
Expectorants are formulas that help in coughing out mucous secrections from the lung.
Since you said you are having a slight foul smell sputum,
this will help in bring it out.
Please note that you might be coughing a little more initially after starting expectorants.
Besides the expectorants, you may or may not need other treatment
Thank you Doctor
which can be determined only after a chest examination +/- X-ray +/- sputum test.
