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

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
There are two ways of treating this.
1st is blind method in which a long list of medications can be suggested which might or might not address the issue and could make you even more sick or
2nd you get yourself checked out.
10 months is a long duration and you need to get yourself checked out by a pulmonologist and run some basic test like a chest xray, sputum for gram staining, AFB, and even fungal elements.
2nd option would be good for you because the root cause would be addressed.
Best regards.

Cough since 10 month indicates u may be having some chronic problem (Allergic Asthma,Tuberculosis,Chronic Acidity problem).

To reach the diagnosis,we  need to know few things from u like H/O  Fever/wt loss/Asthma/allergy/Frequent throat infection.

U need to do some investigation.

So Kindly Consult Pulmonologist/Gen Physician.
