It depends on the cause of the chest cold.
If the chest cold is caused by susceptible strains of bacteria then Cephalexin may be considered.
Antibiotics are not effective for treating a chest cold caused by a virus.
Your doctor will be able to help you more.
(Self diagnosis and treatment is not recommended)
