Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
You seem to be suffering Chronic Allergic Rhinitis or Chronic Bronchitis.
I would advise in such scenario:
1. Hemogram with ESR
3. Chest X-ray
If the Chest X-ray and these blood investigations show no sign of infection then, you would be treated for Allergic cough.
Initially, you would be treated with a combination of Levocetirizine and Montelukast.
But your doctor will examine your chest for any wheezes/spasm.
In such scenario, your Doctor would prescribe you inhalers containing bronchi dilators like Salbutamol.
You might also require short dose of a Steroid inhaler like Budesonide.
Share my opinion with your doctor before acting upon it.
I hope it helps.
