The possibility could be an occult post-nasal drip, i.e. mucous dripping at the back of the throat falling on the voice box which is very sensitive to irritation or acid coming up the food pipe and irritating the voice box.  Both these are very common causes of chronic dry cough.  It could be a bunch of other things but these are the two likely suspects.
