Hi,
Thanks for posting the query on XXXXXXX
After going through your query, I would like to comment the following:

1. You seem to be suffering from chronic cough with winter exacerbations. Your absolute eosinophil count is on the higher side.

2. Considering the history of possible aspiration a bronchoscopy may be of some help. But you need to get yourself clinically evaluated by a Pulmonologist.

3. Investigations that may be required are chest xray, pulmonary function test and HRCT scan of the thorax. Also serum IgE levels will hint towards a possible allergic component.

4. The above investigations will make the picture more clear and thus you can be managed according to your evaluation profile.

I hope I have answered your query. I will be glad to answer follow up queries if any.
Please accept my answer if you have no follow up queries.

Regards

Hi,
Thanks for the follow up.
Considering that your chest xray is normal, it seems a good news. However further course of investigations can be targeted only after a clinical examination by a Pulmonologist.

Get well soon.
Take care.
