Brief Answer:
Chronic cough

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for the information.
Youare having posterior pharyngeal wall congestion. This occurs due to nasal pathology. you are probably having deviation in nasal septum.
Get a x-ray paranasal sinuses done and send me.
Take tablet levocetrizine plus phenylepherine twice daily and xylometazoline nasal drops three times a day. Take all for a week alongwith cough syrup.
All the medicines I have prescribed will be available at prescription only.
Follow up with the reports.
Wish you get well soon.
Thanks and regards
