Cough, wheezing noise, metallic taste in mouth. On antibiotics for whooping and nervous cough. Cure?

Hello I ve had a persistent cough for over two months now. I have been treated for whooping cough with antibiotics and for nervous cough and/or tracheitis with cortisone , both inhaled and tablets. I have a slight weezing noise when I inhale and a metallic taste in my mouth when I cough. I had an x ray on my chest and it came out fine. Nothing seems to work. Please help?

Thanks for posting your query.
Presence of cough since 2 months with normal chest x ray and wheeze may due to Asthma.
Do you have some sort of allergy?
Metallic taste may be due to antibiotics and phlegm production (common during asthmatic attacks).
You should consult with internal medicine specialist and should get thorough check up.
You should take complete antibiotic course along with broncodilators and mucolytics.
You should avoid cold drinks and oily foods.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
