Hi there,

For the cough to fully get away from your system, it takes at least 2 -3 weeks. You have already finished your course of antibiotics, levofloxacin, I presume.

I would suggest you drink plenty of warm fluids,(warm water, green tea etc) . Do steam inhalation 3-4 times a day. You might also want to sign up for yoga classes, which will help reduce your allergies.

Hope this helps.
