For about a week now my mom has had a continuous cough. Now it's gotten to the point where when she coughs, she ends up throwing up. She went to a walk-in clinic and the doctor assigned her an antibiotic because she also has redness in her ears and throat, but the medicine does not seem to be helping. She is 46 years old and takes medicine to control her blood pressure and she also has fat in her liver as well as an ovary cyst. Her height is 5'3" and I'm not sure about her weight.
