Do you smoke ? It could be cough due to chronic bronchitis which may be due to non-infectious inflammation of the bronchi ...this could be due to an allergic type response ...

It could be a lower respiratory infection such as Mycoplasma ...

If that then a brief course of antibiotic such as Avelox would help clear ( this is a common cause of atypical respiratory infections )

Best approach would be to be checked by your doctor or pulmonologist potentially ...

Itchy throat as well may be clue to allergy problem...

Singulair Rx may help your cough as very possible I think...
