Exactly one month ago I came down with step throa along with tonsilitis I went to the ER and was given antibiotics. Within the same week I developed a dry hacking cough that progressed to a chest rattling mucous producing cough. The cough has continued for weeks giving me chest pain body aches and headaches. I have had coughing spells that have brought me to vomiting . This morning I started coughing up a milky white pleghm. I have a history of strep over 3 years in a row and a bout with bronchiti.
