Not necessary: It may not be a chest infection. Post nasal drip coughs take 4 - 6 weeks to get better irrespective of medical treatment. I usually treat with an antihistamine, corticosteroid nasal spray such as flomist, an antacid suggest as nexiam and a saline sinus rinse. These make the symptoms bearable ut it still takes a wile to get better.Signs of a chest infection- rapid breathing, fever.
