you havent mentioned about any treatments taken. well you have mentioned that it has started again. i assume it has reappeared after some medication. homooeopathy have excellent result in recurrent cough . i will advise to start it instead of suppression. constipation may be due to some drugs u have already taken.
another thing is please make clear diagnosis with ur doc ,abt the problem with proper investigations like xray chest, blood reports, rule out any associated possibility of TB or pneumonia etc because in all these case u need to undergo rigorous antiboitic treatment. do not neglect.
thank you.

Hi,thanks for query.From the symptoms it seems that you are having some allergic bronchitis.As long as there is no fever possibility of infection is less likely.Try to find out the reason for this,as at times you can make out.For proper evaluation please visit your doctor and get some investigation done.Avoid provocative things like cold drinks,chocolates,cake,pastries,strong smell etc,take more of citrus foods which are rich in vitamin c that will boost your immunity.Constipation is different issue,take light diet,do regular exercise,avoid maize products,cold drinks etc.Take more fibers in your diet.
wishing you good health.
