Here are my suggestions for this--

Oral probiotics

Zinc lozenges

Mucinex

A saline nasal irrigation system

Chamomile tea with honey

That combination should get rid of your cough in two or three days

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.
