In brief: EE?

You may have a condition called eosinophilic esophagitis.
It causes issues in the esophagus & with allergies. Often a gastroenterologist can diagnose you.

In brief: Lifestyle modify

You may need a better antihistamine than Claritin like Allegra or zyrtec.
You may also want to switch from Prilosec to 2x a day protonix (pantoprazole).

In brief: The cough is

Likely due to allergy.
You should see a doctor and ask about nasal steroids. Also get a neti pot and use it.
