Allergist and Immunologist 's  Response
eosinophils show there are allergies as allergy is only diagnosed by high eosinophil count
you can go for xray chest to rule any superadded infection
in my opinion use montelucast 10 mg bd
add bronchodilator cough syp to clear mucus
add antiallergic cough syp to reduce mucus formation in tract
use 2-3 wk
for permanent cure get allergy tests and sublingual immunotherapy for be sure in future
