Not a smoker. Did chest x-ray, came out clear. Cough is not completely dry. Whenever I get a viral cough from my kids during season change - it lasts upto 8 to 10 weeks. I usually have itchy throat but not itchy eyes or no sneezing - hence I think it might not be allergies since I do not have itchy eyes or sneezing.
I have not tried antihistamines. Should I try that? I mainly have a itchy throat.
I do not take any medications recently. I do not have any heartburn or indigestion.
Those are certainly good options.
FYI, I do have slight runny nose sometimes. Do you think that could also contribute to my itchy throat / cough? But talking with my doctor, he thought slight runny nose may cause itchy throat but not the constant / nagging cough.
Does this give you any additional information or should I pursue two options proposed by you earlier?
