Hi, Kmkm,
Thanks for query.
It seems that you are having viral infection which remains for pretty long time.
As your X ray is clear,do not worry.
Take some decongestant medicine,cough syrup and some cough lozenges.
Do salt water gargling or Listerine gargles.
Avoid fried and junk food.
Stay away from dust,smoke etc.
Ok and bye.
