welcome to HCM,
Since you are having purulent productive cough it will be better to get a sputum culture /senstivity test done to get the appropriate antibiotic.
Besides mucolytic etc team inhalation and breathing exercises will help you getting relieved of sputum .
It will be advisable to avoid exposure to colds .
you may discuss with your doctor about any anti allergic if needed.
