Cause for choking cough with phlegm?

Hi Doc, I was having the flu and cough bought 2 months back. I'm better now, but why is it i still hv a lot of phlegm (even tho i manage to cough it out most times). That aside, i tend to have this chocking cough. it can happen anytime anyday. Why is this so?

Hello,
I have reviewed your history.
The phlegm what you are having is mostly because of LRTI (Lower Respiratory Tract Infection). This type of infection takes some type to recovery.
I would have advised you some mucolytic syrup to you so that all the phlegm will come out soon and you can feel better.
Thank you
