Thanks for the query.

No, your condition is not treatable over the counter.

Mold is known to cause respiratory problems like allergy or lung infections. There are lot more causes for cough and chest pain. Before a treatment is initiated, a thorough physical examination, blood and sputum investigation, X-ray of the chest and ECG is required. Please visit a physician at the earliest.

Hope I have answered your query. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
