Viral cough syndrome, bronchitis, ulcers in mouth. Taking mucinex and inhaler. Help?

Hey I am on my third antibiotic and still coughing and my ribs are killing me especially right side. Doc claims it is viral cough syndrome left over from bronchitis . I do not think so. No fever the whole time. Xray was clear on lungs. Taking mucinex, third antibiotic, inhaler and can not get better. Ulcers in mouth and my face in breaking out bad. Been sick since December 28,2012.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum . The reasons for persistant couugh, with out findings in the lungs might, Uvelitis a grouth at the end of the throat, by touching the pharynx cause severe cough. For this type of cough you need to use cough supressants like dexametarphane, codeine, ect which are present in some cough syrups.
Best thing to get relief immediately is garling with luke warm salt water 2 or 3 times a day . Avoid taking fruits, juices, ice creams, ice water to drink , avid air conditioners till you get relief, and you can use them after relief.
I advise you to consult an E.N.T.surgeon who is the doctor concerned with the causes in the pharynx.
Wishing for a quick and comfertable relief and thanks for calling.
