Brief Answer: Allergic cough Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. It is very common in many to get symptoms you get especially in winters. This happens due to allergy to the Pollen dust and cold weather. You may have to take anti-allergic medication like Benadryl in the initial stage of the problem to avoid worsening. Also gargle with antiseptic solution like CHLORHEXIDINE twice daily to prevent infections which are common in such times. Wish you good health. regards,
