Cough: It could be lingering cough from previous infection. It may be asthma, reflux or postnasal discharge causing cough. It could be some more pressing/significant to evaluate further if you have a h/o smoking.

Possibilities...: Possibilities for this include post-nasal drip where the throat is irritated and a cough ensues. There are nasal sprays your doctor can prescribe that are very effective. Bronchospasm can also have symptoms like you describe and bronchodilator and steroid inhalers can be effective for this. So, see your doctor so the correct diagnosis and treatment can be done. Quit smoking to lower inflammation.
