General & Family Physician 's  Response
Hi welcome to HCMForum. it appears to be lower respiratory tract infection. it should be treated completely till the secretions are completely cleared. by home treatment appearent cure occurs , leaving behind the flegm. I advise you to consult a chest physician for diagnosis and treatment.
Besides i advise you to follow some diet recommendations. as take balanced diet containing green leafy vegetables, pulses. Dont take fruits juices, ice cream, ice water. dont worry you will be fine.
