It is possible that you have chronic bronchitis and you will have to consult your GP for a chest x-ray, blood tests and sputum analysis, to determine the cause for your chronic productive cough. It is possible that you have an underlying bacterial infection that will have to be treated with an extended course of oral antibiotics.
