In brief: Allergies and Cough

It very well could be if it is related to post-nasal drainage causing the cough.
But allergies and asthma are strongly correlated so it could be a cough-variant asthma or the basic form of asthma. It could also be due to reflux since this can trigger cough. And sometimes it is due to a different medication. Start by controlling the allergies and work your way down the list.
