Coughing like this can occur for a few weeks after a mild chest infection. Can also occur with fluid dripping from the back of your nose (post nasal drip), with mild asthma and with oesophageal reflux. Also with certain medications (if you have started any new ones recently) if it continues for more than 1 more week then best to get assessed by your GP
