hello Mr. Crush,

As you are having frequent cough and cold, it is possible that you are having allergy. Smoking can agrrevate the condition. Please get your blood investigated for Hb, TLC, DLC, ESR and get X ray chest PA view done. It might be possible that your Eosinophill count is raised. Please consult with Physician for furthur management after examining you. and PLEASE QUIT SMOKING.

Thanks and take care.
