Given your picture, it looks like an allergy or probably gastroesophageal reflux disease
If you have other symptoms like burning pain in the chest, reflux of food, then an endoscopy of the upper gastrointestinal tract (Upper GI endoscopy) can help rule this out.Whether this is related to your pneumonial or not will depend on whether the pneumonia caused a condition called bronchiectasis
. This can be diagnosed using a CT scan.
Additionally, we should also consider an allergy. The allergen can frequently not be identified. However, staying away from dust; keeping your house scrupulously clean; avoiding sea food and trying to identify what could be the cause.
Some medications like ACE inhibitors can also cause cough on a long standing basis. If you have been taking any of these, then you would need to speak with your physician.
Fourthly, we need to consider the possibility of tuberculosis
. If you have symptoms like low grade fever
, weight loss
or loss of appetite, this is something which we would need to rule out.
Please see a physician and get a chest Xray done.
Hope this helps.
