Go back to doc: A cough for 4 weeks not responding to antibiotics, oral steroids or albuterol. Sounds like doc was treating you for lung infection with some obstructive lung disease. There are other conditions that can cause cough like rhinitis, sometimes due to allergies, and gastroesophageal reflux. Please go back to doc for further work-up.
