Chronic cough is defined as lasting eight weeks or longer in adults, four weeks in children While it can sometimes be difficult to pinpoint the problem that's triggering a chronic cough, the most common causes are tobacco use, postnasal drip, asthma and acid reflux the backflow of stomach acid that can irritate your throat. Chronic cough typically disappears once the underlying problem is treated...consult physician they will help you

Hi there...we understand your concern. Chronic dry cough could be due to many causes like allergies, chronic viral infection, exposure to pollutants, smoking, acid reflux, any chronic drug intake. Do you have any associated recurrent fever? Does it increase on exposure to dust? Also was only blood tests done or even chest x ray was done to check for lower respiratory tract infection? All of these will have to be evaluated. So kindly consult a pulmonologist (TBCD) and a ENT specialist for further evaluation.
