In brief: Possibly...
A chronic cough is usually due to bronchospasm from any cause, including chronic bronchitis, asthma, etc.
, gerd, post-nasal drip or even a combination of these entities. Treatment for each of these is different so you need to be evaluated by your doctor so the diagnosis can be made and the correct treatment(s) rendered.
