Suffering from cough, fever, body ache. How to stop this from reoccurring?

Hi, My friend always suffers from cough and fever. Every month he is down with fever and body ache. Recenty he got an xray done and it shows few cough marks on the right side of the lung, his doctor has adviced him a week medicines and said nothing to worry about. But my concern is why should he suffer again the very next month, is there no way to stop the fever and cough from reoccuring...

Hello Sheetal
Yes there should not be cough occurring every month.
You can get done culture and sensitivity of the sputum that comes out on can take morning sputum in a sterile container which is available at hospitals and then submit it at hospital for examination.
also take care that your friend does not smoke and take alcohol.
You can follow up after the report.
Get well soon.
