In brief: Asthma

Are you on an albuterol or Advair inhaler? usually they start with albuterol if that does not work add Pulmicort or Advair and the possibly Singulair (montelukast) and/or antihistamines.
Check triggers ( like pets) Discuss with doctor/allergist/pulmonologist

In brief: Use your inhaler

The lungs and airways are hyperreactive and this may be from underlying irritation and inflammation.
The inhalers such as albuterol four times a day may be helpful. Additionally, a long acting inhaler such as symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) or dulera may help with more lasting relief. Keep a log of frequency of coughs. You need to give it a couple of weeks to see improvement. Than it's back to the doctor for recheck.
