Persistant cough

Patient : I've had a cough now for about 5 months, maybe more, sometimes it's extremely bad and other times it's not. A couple of months ago I coughed up blood and I'm coughing up green/yellow phlegm. I went to the doctor about it and they prescribed me Amoxicillin for a week and it didn't do anything. I have asthma and I'm using the brown and blue inhalers but again they don't help with any of the symptoms. I also took over the counter cough medicine and allergy relief tablets incase I was reacting to dust in my room.
Symptoms:  Coughing
Sore throat
Nausea
Tiredness
Headache
Muscle aches
