In brief: Depends

Everyone is different of course, but if treated appropriately, the cough should subside with the infection in 24-72 hours.

In brief: Weeks after primary

Though the primary infection, typically viral in nature, can last a few days, the damage from it can result in bronchospasm to mild stimuli such as cold air, resulting in bouts of severe dry coughing - this type of coughing can last.
For weeks to several months.
