You might have had viral upper respiratory tract infection and usually after it resolves many people tend to have persistent irritative dr cough. Though it will resolve spontaneously you can use lozenzes like strepsils, continue steam inhalation two to three times daily. Do salt water gargling and use dry cough syrups whenever necessary
