In brief: Asthma treatment
Cough variant asthma may be what you are describing.
Step wise asthma treatment can be helpful with steroid inhalers and bronchodilators. Medical evaluation with breathing tests, xrays, blood tests can check for other causes and help confirm the diagnosis. Of course smoking cessation, avoidance of dust and asthma triggers is helpful.
