  1. Hi..
    Thanks for the query..

    Chronic cough can be due to a number of causes like post nasal drip, acid reflux, chronic bronchitis, side effects of medications, respiratory tract infections etc..

    So it is advisable to consult a Physician and get a clinical examination done so that approprite treatment can be advised..

    For now you can take cough suppressants like Dextromethorphan and a combination of Levocetrizine and Monteulokast..

    Hope this helps..
