There are 2 possible reasons.  The first is a post-bronchitic syndrome whereby the airways are raw and still healing from an acute infection.  This may take up to 8 weeks to heal.  The second possibility is one of a chronic post-nasal drip for which you will need to take nasal sprays and antihistamines.  Your GP will need to arrange this for you.
