Brief Answer:
Possibility of bronchitis is more.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
By your history and description, possibility of bronchitis is more.
Since you are having greenish phlegm, we should also rule out pneumonia.
So better to consult doctor and get done clinical examination of respiratory system, PFT (Pulmonary Function Test) and Chest x ray.
PFT will not only diagnose bronchitis but it will also tell you about severity of the disease.
Chest x ray is needed to rule out pneumonia.
You may need antibiotic an inhaled bronchodilators.
So consult doctor and discuss all these. Don't worry, you will be alright.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.

Brief Answer:
You can try bronchorex or Brozedex.

Detailed Answer:

I can understand your concern.
You should take Brozedex or bronchorex syrup. It is having combination of ambroxol, terbutaline and guafenesin.
I don't know whether you will get these over the counter or not.
But if you get then you can can't start this.
Hope I have solved your query. If you are not having further queries, then please close the conversation and rate my answer.
