Detailed Answer:
Hello again.

If you think that the situation is serious it would be better for you to be examined and to get medical help probably a chest X Ray is needed.

If not than usually we don't recommend the medication against the cough with secretions. You can use paracetamol or ibrufen for some days.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
