Dear jramesh
Hello I am Dr Ravinder Sharma ENT surgeon
On the basis of information provided it appears you have mixed infection causing symptoms of cough and cold. I would advise you to get a blood test (CBC) and a chest Xray in addition to the test already done. It appears you will need a course of antibiotics . Please revert back these tests or consult a ENT surgeon

I hope this answers your concerns. Feel free to contact me if your need more information on this

With warm regards
Ravinder Sharma
