Welcome to Healthcare Magic
See here, Allergic cough does not cure with antibiotics. You need to keep away from allergens like pollen, dust, pollution. Use handkerchief in these situations to avoid exposure. You need to stop smoking if you do. Get an X-ray chest as well and PFT to rule out Asthma. Get blood tests done for haemoglobin and blood counts to confirm oeosinophilia. Also you need to be on antihistamines for relief. You may require different medicines like LT antagonists and/or steroid inhalers for preventing attack as well. Please do consult with an ENT Doctor who will be in best position to help you after thorough checkup.
