In brief: Depends on cause...

If it is due to a lung issue, you need to see a pulmonologist, if it is musculoskeletal a physical therapist might help.
It may also be due to acid reflux from your stomach when the intra-thoracic and intra-abdominal pressures are raised with coughing, so you may need to see a gastroenterologist. Check with your doctor.

In brief: Treat cough

See your doctor to be evaluated for both cough and chest burning.
If your chest burning occurs only with cough, might want to start by treating the cough.
