In brief: Yes...
This could be due to bronchospasm which can occur when a bronchitis infection is resolving.
You may need a bronchodilator inhaler as well as a steroid inhaler until the cough resolves completely so see your doctor.

In brief: May be sinusitis
If a cold persists more than a week it could be sinusitis.
If you only have a cough and no fever or pain you can try saline nasal irrigations and drinking lots of water. If symptoms worsen see a doctor.
