HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

There are 3 common cause for a persistent cough. They are : (1)post nasal drip associated with sinus disease. This is the most common.
(2) gastroesophageal reflux disease ( GERD)
(3) cough associated with asthma

With a previous history of sinus disease, you may want to consider the use of a topical steroid nasal spray and an antihistamine.

If there are any reflux symptoms, you should treat these as well.

I hope this helps
