Been coughing phlegm for 4weeks wouldn't say I have bad chest pain but strain on neck/throat/chest when I cough. Could it be a chest infection?

In brief: Depends

if fevers/chills could be an infection.
If no fever/chills and in no more sputum production likely strain from cough for 4weeks...question is why have you had cough for 4 weeks
