Sometimes bronchitis can set up bronchospasm and you would need inhaler treatment to relieve is similar to an asthmatic cough but after a bronchitis.

Asthma can do it.

Post nasal drip.

GERD or acid reflux which often can come on after someone has a cough/infection and nexium or other such medication can be used for this.

I would look at these possibilities with your doc.
