Our expert says:
The most common causes of chronic persistent cough are nose, nasal and sinus inflammation with a post-nasal drip, acid coming up the food pipe, and the side-effect, especially blood pressure tablets. The treatment will depend on the symptoms and clinical presentation. I suggest you consult a good GP and, if that doesn't help, a lung specialist.
