Should I go back to doctor? (Chest infection related)

Not sure whether I should trouble the doctor again so asking here to check!

Last week, I went to the doctor because I had a cough for 3 weeks and it was getting very bad. She said my chest was very crackly and that I had a bad chest infection and prescribed me a week of doxycycline. I have one more day of that course left and I feel much much better although I am still coughing and feel like I have lots of phlegm in my chest and when I exhale strongly I can hear it there. I don't feel that I have any trouble breathing but I am worried about having a relapse.

Any help appreciated!

If you are at all concerned go back to the gp. You may just need a few more days of anti biotics as she said the infection was bad.
