Hi, Jules.
Thanks for query.
it seems you are having acute bronchitis,either viral or bacterial.
As you are traveling within few days you have to take antibiotics for few days so that your infection will be controlled and you will be alrighr.
Take some chough suppressant as well.
Avoid fried and junk food.
Ok and bye.
