  • probably post nasal drip .get your sinuses checked.multiple courses of antibiotic may be required.expect a few more months of coughing after the sinuses are clear. this is called a period of hypersensitivity and is usual ,infact it is diagnostic.avoid colds and flu in future as it will probably happen again every time you are infected.take pseudoephidrene to help drain your sinuses.most chronic cough is caused by post nasal drip so it is a good bet .keep the doc informed in case it is the start of something more serious.
