Thanks for posting your query.

Fever with cough indicates infection, though you were treated with Antibiotic , your cough has still persisted . It means the Antibiotic given to you has not worked properly and you need to get another course of antibiotic.

But this time before getting an antibiotic started I would recommend a test called Throat swab culture sensitivity test. This test will tell which is the right Antibiotic for you and if you use that Antibiotic your cough will subside.

Also do salt water gargling , drink hot water, avoid non veg food and avoid citrus fruits.

Hope this information was useful to you.
Any clarifications feel free to ask.
