Do u suffer from hyperacidity?
Because it can cause increased cough and a strange taste in mouth and can keep recurring again and again.
Also if you suffer from recurrent colds then the same thing can occur again
Kindly get a lung function test done to look for any hyper reactive airways
Are you a smoker?
