Dry cough, wheezing, metallic taste on coughing, no acid reflux. Due to bronchitis?

I had bronchitis symptoms a couple of weeks ago, but they went away. Now during the day I develop this dry cough and wheeze but when I cough it has a metallic taste to it. Should I be concerned? I have no fever, chills, etc., nor have i ever had issues with acid reflux . Could this just be lingering bronchitis issues? I didn t go to the doctor or get antibiotics, since they don t do much for bronchitis anyway. please advise on what this could be a sign of. Thank you very much.

Hi,
from history it seems that you might be having bronchitis giving rise to this problem.
Initially to control infection go for one antibiotic medicine course.
Infection Precipitate the bronchitis attack.
Take some broncho dilator medicine to get easy respiration.
Take some cough expectorant to relieve cough.
Quit smoking if you are smoking.
Do deep respiratory exercise to strengthen respiratory muscles and open up all small bronchi oles.
Avoid dumpy and humid atmosphere.
Ok and take care.
