Hello dear,welcome to Healthcare Magic forum. Chronic cough needs evaluation to rule out conditions like tuberculosis, bronchial asthma or other airway diseases .After having a thorough physical examination, this may need some investigations like blood tests,sputum test,chest x ray,CT or MRI scanning,mantoux test etc.Your doctor will be keeping this in mind. If every investigations comes normal and baby is having good apatite and gaining adequate weight,you need not worry.Just keep the room clean and dust free.Avoid exposure to dusty or cold atmosphere. Clean fan and ac filters regularly.Keep proper posture during breastfeeding and burping after. Hope this answer will help.Thank you.
