hello and welcome to HCM,

Since you have only a cough with different intensity and your infection as such is better you have nothing to worry about as cough is a symptom which is usually the first to come and the last to go.

You can however help yourself in faster recovery by:
1. Taking warm fluids
2. Avoid anything cold, spicy and oily
3. Proper diet at regular interval
4. Do not strain when you speak and never let your throat to become dry and also do not frequently clear your throat

take care and get well soon but if the symptoms persist and you are getting worse they consult an ENT as soon as possible

Dr Siram Nathan
ps: when the cough is so severe some amount of chest pain, labored breathing is normal; but if it is more then you must consult a respiratory physician
