Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 months ago

Yes, postnasal drip can cause a cough as can gastric acid reflux causing a chemical bronchitis

For now I'd suggest a saline nasal irrigation system and either Prilosec or Pepcid AC to take care of this

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
