Brief Answer:
Get done chest x ray.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
You are having chronic cough which is not relieved by routine cough suppressant.
So we should definitely rule out lung infection (pneumonia) and bronchitis in your case.
So get done chest x ray first.
Please let me know
1. Do you smoke?
2. Do you have fever?
3. Do you have breathlessness?
Please reply me answers of above asked questions, so that I can guide you better. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
