Thanks for writing to us.
It seems that the minor cough and cold you had has affected your chest too It could be a viral with a superadded bacterial infection. Steam inhalation, nasal decongestants and systemic antibiotics are recommended to take care of your symptoms. OTC drugs might not cause full recovery.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
