Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Since your cough is increasing and you are having sputum production and trouble breathing it would be wise to go to the ER and get examined and treated for best relief. You can take a mucolytic syrup for some relief to remove mucous plugs. Are you suffering from asthma. Do you smoke. Avoid smoke, dust, pollution, use handkerchief in these areas to prevent exposure.
