Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to bronchitis or pneumonia. I suggest to do some examinations for further evaluation. I recommend to do a chest X-ray, complete blood count sediment level. Meanwhile, I suggest to continue the antibiotics such as Azithromycin for three days. I also recommend to take vitamin supplements.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
