Possibilities....: Possible etiologies of this cough include bronchospasm from any cause, gerd, post-nasal drip or a combination of factors. These all have entirely different treatments so you need to see a doctor for diagnosis/treatment. A lung doctor could definitely treat this cough so you may need to be referred to a lung specialist.
