    I'm not sure what you mean by crackling. I had a flu like illness for over two weeks and once the phlemg type cough cleared up I had a very dry cough that I eventually realised was being caused by acid reflux.  The PPI I take usually controls  my acid reflux. My GP explained the mechanics of coughing and how it causes acid to come up and he suggested to take an extra PPI for a few days.

    Crackling after flu makes me think you still have a cough from your bout of flu that has possibly gone bad on you and turned into a chest infection. I would get doc to listen to your lungs and take it from there.

      After initial flu symptoms the doctor gave me an antibiotic for the chest infection. This week he has given me Carbocisteine a Mucolytic to loosen  the phlegm and make it less sticky so that it can be brought up.
