HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, the given history is suggestive of allergic bronchitis that does not need any treatment, particularly antibiotic, antibiotic does not have any role in allergic condition, if I would be doctor of this case then I would treat this case with "Antihistamine alone and the best option is "Tab Levocetrizine 10 mg three times in day" hope this information helps you have nice day.
I find this answer helpful
