I hav talking induced dry cough that last for several weeks after exposure to cold air,air condition& after influenza infection.any help about reasons?

Can acid reflux be without any symtoms? And can cause dry cough after eating, talking, tired, and lifting things ?no cough while sleeping

Yes: Gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) can present in many ways. Some people do not experience the "typical" heartburn and regurgitation. They may have cough or get frequent pneumonia in severe cases. If cough is the main symptom it makes sense to start with your PCP or a pulmonary doctor.

My three year old daughter has had a persistent dry cough and minimal runny nose without a fever.

Possible allergies.: If your daughter is having recurrent symptoms with out fevers and signs of acute infection she is most likely having recurrent allergic symptoms. I would rec using saline nose drops for nasal hygiene. Take some loratidine otc, and look for signs of improvement. If nothing changes in 3-4 weeks then talk to your pediatrician. ...Read more
