Sounds like you have hay fever with a post-nasal drip.  It's a common cause of chronic cough and usually requires treatment with antihistamines and a steroid nasal spray.  Doing a skin prick allergy test may be worthwhile in case you are allergic to something avoidable like cats and dogs.  Speak to your medical practitioner.
