Over the span of around 8 months I have been experiencing a dry but persistent cough. It began after an epidemic of whooping cough in my area. I was tested and it came back negative but even so I have been coughing. It is not a hacking cough and doctor upon doctor has based it on anemia, allergies, or acid reflux. None of those medications have worked, any ideas?
