Hello.Ideal treatment had been amoxicillin 500 mg every 8 hours 8 days
Go to your doctor because you have taken a few days antibiotic
For the rest quiet with a few more days of antibiotic your illness will resolve
As you say there are no signs of suspicion or alarm
Coughing is normal and not smoking is positive.I wish good health
