, breathing difficulties, swellings, fever and whether the cough is productive or not, and if yes, the color could be very helpful.
A chest X ray

However while waiting, sh continues on her usually medication, low salt diet, prescribed diet and its advisable she gets shots for Hemophilus Influenzae and Pneumo 23 regularly.
