Hi and thanks for query,
The chest pain in your case could either be due to an infection, a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease like asthma or rarely, a cardiac problem. a family history of asthma or allergic rhinitis is important to be known.
A simple chest X ray could be important in the evaluation of your symptoms. association of symptoms with rashes could indicate an allergic or viral origin. A complete blood count could be important in distinguishing these two based in their lymphocyte and erythrocyte levels.
A good physical examination in search of respiratory wheezes or crackles is important in making a difference between asthma and a bacterial infection. An evaluation by your internist/.pneumologist could be of great help in ascertaining the actual cause of your symptoms. I suggest you gte an appointment with one of them.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
