In brief: Possibilities...
This could be due to bronchospasm and inflammation that is unresolved from your recent infection.
If so, a bronchodilator inhaler as well as a steroid inhaler would help the situation to resolve. Your doctor can make this diagnosis and prescribe this treatment. This is the most likely explanation but other possibilities include post-nasal drip, gerd or a combination of factors. See your doctor.
