Thanks for the query

I understand your concern

Cough can be due to many reasons like pneumonia, interstitial lung disease, granuloma like tuberculosis and abscess of the lung and so on. You need a CT scan of the chest to find out the exact cause of the cough. I feel that you should not take medications on empirical basis as your chest X XXXXXXX shows a shadow.
Let me know if you have any other concern

Best wishes
