General & Family Physician Dr. Pavan Kumar Gupta's  Response looks like viral bronchitis.Take steam inhalation and some anti allergic like cetrizine for 4 to 5 days.If the problem persists then get chest x-ray and hemogram done.Good luck.

Hi Mangalam
this could be just because of the infection, nothing to worry, but you need to consult a physician to rule out other possibilities and also to get a prescription of antibiotics
