Suggest Treatment For Persistent Cold And While On Guaifenesin
self care & specific treatment would help.
Thank you for the query under health care magic.I have read it &understand your concern.
It seems you had a viral or allergic cold to start with ,which did not subside but was secondarily infected by bacteria ( green cough indicates infection).
Having no relief with Gifenesin.... you need to change the antibiotic. Azithromycin 500 mg or Amoxicillin-cloxicillin combinations would do good in chest infections... the suitable dose should be decided after physical examination by a physician.
BUT ideally sputum culture &sensitivity test should be done for finding effective antibiotic &start with it to get a guaranteed effect.Consult your treating physician for the test &also suitable for you.
- In case you have diabetes.. the sugar should be checked... & needful alteration in diabetic medicines done as per your treating Diabetes doctor.
* Self care..
-Avoid eating spicy ,oily or sour food.Avoid known allergens.
-Drink lot of warm water. Do hot saline gargles.
Take vapor inhalation.
-Avoid exposure to extreme cold,dust,smoke,fumes. Stop smoking.
