Coughing since long time

Doctor, I am having cough now since more than 40 days. Its dry cough and I am not having any other problems. I even took some medicines as suggested by doctor, but coughing has not been reduced yet. I am very worried now. Which test should i take to find the root cause and what can be the possible outcome for this?

Hi, some tests like chest xray, ct scan, lung function tests, sputum examination are required to know the underlying cause.
Kindly consult Pulmonologist for further evaluation...
