Brief Answer:
Stop benadryl and start aerodil.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Ask a doctor forum.
I can understand your concern.
Benadryl is cough suppressant.
It is indicated in dry cough, not in productive cough.
At present, you are having productive cough (sputum production).
So it is advisable not to take cough suppressant and start cough expectorant syrup like Aerodil or Brozedex or Bronchorex.
Take any of these 1 tea spoon full thrice daily.
Don't worry, you will be alright with all these.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.

Yes, chest x ray is attached.
I have gone through the chest x ray you're have attached.
It seems to have bilateral lower zone hazziness.
This is not normal.
What is the reporting done by radiologist?
Do you have swine flu cases in your area?
Do you have breathlessness?
For phlegm, you should start expectorant syrup like Ascoril or Brozedex or Bronchorex.
You are should also start acebrophyllin and azithromycin tablet.
What is your weight?
Please reply me answers of above asked questions, so that I can guide you better about swine flu and doses of these drugs.

Thanks for your follow up question on icliniq.
I can understand your concern.
I have gone through the prescription.
