Thank you for asking HCM.
I have gone through your query. Your problem can be due to respiratory infection. Auscultation should be done to rule out congestion in lungs. Antibiotic therapy will be needed in such case. I usually advise antibiotics like Co-amoxiclav in such case. Consult your local doctor for this. Take warm fluids like lemon tea and warm chicken soup with pepper. Taking chewable vitamin C is good also.
Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
