I'm dry coughing every night at the same time through the night and sometimes wake up and cough a bit - clears up in the morning. What's going on?

Once you have cleared them out, it doesn't happen until you lie down again. You could try using a decongestant nasal spray at bedtime and anytime you wake in the night with irritation in the area. Some steroid based nasal sprays are available, not sure whether Rx in the UK. ...Read more
