Depends on source: Cough from "allergies " often has an asthma mechanism and/or is related to post nasal drip from allergic rhinitis. Eliminating/minimizing the allergic exposure, when possible is best done. Treating the allergic rhinitis (nasal cs, antihistamines, etc.) and/ the asthma/"asthma like" syndrome (inhaled cs, bronchodilators,etc.) should work. Desensitization, when indicated, is another option.
