Dry cough is often due to either Pharyngitis or Laryngitis.Well you can combat Pharyngitis By gargling the CHLORHEXIDINE solution and bring down the cough by steam inhalation.
You can also try some home remedies like Mix 3 tablespoon of lemon juice, 1 cup honey, and 1/4 cup warm water and take two teaspoons daily.

Peel a small piece of fresh ginger. Sprinkle some salt on it and chew.

Add a gram of turmeric powder to a teaspoon of honey.

This is very useful for a dry cough if you are not allergic to nuts, soak almonds overnight. Remove their skin. Make a paste of these almonds with little butter and sugar.
If its due to laryngitis then you will need antibiotics which has to be put on you after a detailed physical examination
