Dry cough, sharp chest pain

The last 3-4 weeks, i have had the following symptoms, however i don't know if they are related. A few weeks ago i noticed red splothces and some small pimple like rashes, when i got out of the shower. I went to to see a physicians assistant and got some ointment and a mild steroid, however didnt take them because the symptoms were statring to fade. I was also feeling a little tired. Fast forward 2 weeks and now the last 4 days i have had a tickling sensation in my chest/throat and is making me have a dry cough. It feels like i have to cough something up but i cant cough with enough force to get it out, and the cough is still dry. Sometimes i have a small coughing fit, and after one coughing fit, i had a sharp pain on the right side of my chest. It felt like there was icyhot on my lung, then that feeling faded away after about an hour. But, i still get an occasional sharp pain on my right, sometimes left side in what feels like my lungs. I should also point out that i am a smoker of 4 years.
