I am a 17 year old male. I have cough which has lasted for over a month now. I have reached a doctor 15 days ago and took all the medicine prescribed. In addition I have also took 3 bottles of cough syrup over the coughing period. It has not been cured yet what should I do?

If you have productive sputum go for sputum culture and sensitivity as well as sputum AFB test. Do a chest xray and complete blood count and ESR.
I can understand the situation but having three bottles of cough syrup without relief for a month is indicative of respiratory allergy. Please take a private consult for quick and assured relief.
