There are many causes for a chronic unproductive cough. Postnasal drip from sinusitis, Asthma, Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), Infections, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and some Blood pressure meds. Talk to your Dr to have a thorough evaluation where these are ruled out. They can also discuss the effectiveness of your allergy meds.
