Diagnoses for Lung Infection.

I have had a cough for just over 2 months now. I was treated with the Z-pack, Ammoxoclin, and a steroid the wipes out the immune system. I have seen 3 different doctors at the pediactrics and most either thought it was a sinus infection or broncitous. I had to get a cat-scan of my chest and the found a small shadow, which the doctors brushed off as nothing. After that I was coughing so hard I bruised my rib cage. After a month of coughing solid like chunks every morning (worm shaped), I went back to the doctors and was put on Flovent HFA 110 mcg. My doctor said it was only an inflamed chest, I am still wheezing and not so sure I can agree with the doctor s diagnoses.

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
What is your age? You may be having Pneumonia which is the Inflammation of Lungs secondary to Bacterial or viral Infection. Kindly get yourself examined by a Chest Physician. If Pneumonia is confirmed you may want to take Steroid Preparations along with a High dose of antibiotics for more than two weeks or so.
Get plenty of rest, Stay away from school or work until your temperature returns to normal and you stop coughing. Drink plenty of fluids, especially water. You may want to take your Medications regularly and go for regular follow up.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.
