  • the most common cause of chronic cough is post nasal drip.make sure your sinuses are clear then waiit until your lungs have come out of thier hypersensitive state.this can take threemonths.this is why people say "nothing seems to help"next autumn,take the initiative.before colder air starts to make your mucus membranes swell,thus blocking your sinuses and causing them to infect,take sudafed to keep them open.bear in mind that it takes several courses of high dose antibiotics to clear sinuses of infection.this is because only a tiny proportion of what you swallow reaches them.let me know how you get on.
