In brief: Cough...

If you are coughing after the rest of your bronchitis symptoms have resolved, you may have bronchospasm.
This can be treated with bronchodilator and steroid inhalers prescribed by your doctor so see your doctor if this is the case. If you smoke, you need to quit asap to decrease airway inflammation.
