Cough that won’t go away, doctor prescribed decongestants, antibiotics and steroids, need second opinion?

Hi, I’m a 26 years old that have a productive cough that won’t go away.

When it first started the doctor prescribed me antihistamines, after a month of those, I felt worse and another doctor prescribed decongestants, antibiotics and steroids. Those helped for a little, but once I finished the cure, the cough came back and another doctor gave me antihistamines and nasal spray which didn’t help at all,
I don’t know what to do anymore.
In attachment there is a Xray I did when it first started.

In my opinion you are suffering chronic bronchitis that needs a 2-3 months of steroid treatment ,plus avoiding smoking..
You need to stay on a longer term treatment program with inhaled steroid ..

Hi
In my opinion you have chlamydia pneumoniae , I recommend Tetracycline antibiotics under a doctor supervision as they are considered dangerous
Good Luck

hi
there are homogenous opaque patches on xray in left lower and right middle lobes.
This suggests pneumonitis. Broad spectrum antibiotics with sputum examination along with HRCT chest is highly recommended.
thanks.
