how long has this been going on?

have you been evaluated for asthma? there are several forms of asthma, one of which is called cough-variant asthma. you should also be prescribed an inhaler.


i would also try a nasal steroid especially at night, like flonase.


finally, severe gastric reflux disease can cause a chronic cough such as this.


may i ask, your height and weight?
