    It depends whether it is bacterial or viral. If it is viral antibiotics won't do anything for you. What colour is the phlegm you are coughing up?

    I had loads of infections after my PEs, but pretty sure they all came with a fever. I think I would wait and see if it develops and, if it does, get to the doctors. If you do end up needing antibiotics, we found Oxycycline was the most effective (and we tried a few).
