Hair detoxing?: While I suspect that you are looking to cheat on a hair follicle drug test, I will say that there is no such thing as hair detoxing. Dyes or bleaches will invalidate the test (not what you are looking for). It is better to get appropriate treatment and get off the hamster wheel of addiction than to try to manipulate tests that are meant to foster accountability.

Go back to the ER: If you were septic recently, you are at risk for either a relapse from that infection or a healthcare associated infection (a different infection). Fever is not a normal post-sepsis symptom, nor is a rapid respiratory rate. Get someone to take you back to the hospital immediately (don't drive yourself).

Get checked: Non-productive cough that is wheezy and worsened at night or by respiratory irritants is likely asthma, but there are other possibilities (chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis, etc) that are also worth checking out. See a lung specialist or your primary care doctor if you can't see a specialist without a referral.
