It is possible that you have an allergic reaction or seasonal hayfever. Sinusitis due to the hayfever can cause a post nasal discharge that irritates the back of your throat, resulting in an chronic cough. You can try a product like Zyrtec (non-sedating antihistamine), one tablet, once daily to alleviate your symptoms. If it does not improve your symptoms within the next three days, you have to consult your doctor.
Another possible cause for your symptoms, may be acid reflux. It will be wise to ask your doctor to consider this as a possibility and to refer you for a barium meal.
