Post nasal drip: Nasal congestion often cause secretions to drip to the back of the throat and cause a cough. A steroid nasal spray can be very helpful. There is now an over-the-counter preparation. Smokers, however, need to be aware of undiagnosed emphysema and should seek a pulmonologist's advice in addition
