Brief Answer:
Infection is the cause for your symptoms

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your query and understand your concerns. Pneumonia is a infection of lungs and in that case you will obviously have symptoms like you are facing. It is advisable to have some investigations and take treatment accordingly with antibiotics. I would suggest you to take sputum culture and sensitivity along with a chest X-Ray which will tell you a clear diagnosis. I would also suggest you to do gargling every morning with lukw warm water and salt or betadine gargles. Try to drink warm water and avoid aggravating factors such as dust and cool air. But the final treatment would be only after diagnosing the problem.
Dont worry it is a common thing which will go away if once treated.
Hope this answers your query. Get back if you have more.

Regards,
Dr.Alekhya.

Brief Answer:
Blood thinner may work but takes time

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for coming up with more details.

Yes, you can continue the medication prescribed by your doctor but in my opinion over the counter medication don't have much effect. But as I've told you earlier pneumonia can only be treated with antibiotics so make sure you receive them and we usually prescribe Levofloxacin in this condition. Just contact your doctor and discuss regarding this. But its not that severe concern, so don't worry.

Meanwhile start taking steam inhalation twice daily for the next few days, it'd be helpful.

Hope this answers your query.

Regards,
Dr.Alekhya.
