Benadryl merely suppressed the symptom of coughing not the underlying disease. Please drop unto my clinic Healthcare@Basaveshwaranagar for a proper ENT Examination to properly diagnose the underlying disease and manage it appropriately.

Hi there I understand your concern...Home-care measures to relieve cough include reducing irritating stimuli (eg, cold, dry air; indoor or outdoor air pollutants) that may provoke coughing. An upright or semiupright posture, such as sleeping with the head and shoulders raised, may decrease cough related to pharyngeal secretions...do warm saline gargling twice a day with OTC medication...Consult nearest physician they will do the needful.
