Suggest treatment for chest infection

I have been coughing for six months now, after two months of coughing i went to the clinic and i was told it was bronchiotis and i was given 10 injections and some aral medicine. this just cooled the cough but it didnt cure completely. a month later i went back to the clinic and an X-ray was taken, but it didnt show any thing and i was told my lungs are ok,hence the doctor just gave me some anti biotic.my cough reduced but not completely cured again. i went bank now in the 6th month, and the doctor examined my chest and again told me that the lungs were ok.and i was told the problem was bronchiotis and resparatory infection,and i was give 7 injections and aral medicine.i have just finishe the medicine, and i am still feeling like i am not completely cured, though i now feel much better,So please can the doctors tell me what exactly is wrong with me

Hi,
As your complain is since long it requires some investigation to come on proper diagnosis.
Apparently it looks allergic bronchitis but many a time in Eosinophilia one gets this type of long standing bronchitis.
Go for complete blood checking like TC, DC, ESR and Eosinophil count.
If Eosinophilia is there then simple one course of Di ethyl Carbamazine for 7-10 days will give you complete cure.
Go for deep breathing exercises daily.
Ok and take care.
