ENT Specialist 's  Response
Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
This chronic dry cough can be either due to post nasal drip secondary to sinus pathology or laryngopharyngeal reflux secondary to acid reflux problem. You need to consult your ENT specialist or your physician. Drink plenty of warm water, do steam inhalation.
Take care

Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar
