This condition is known as Post nasal drip or Upper Airway Caugh Syndrome(UACS)
It happens when excessive mucous accumulate in throat. It is caused by sinusitis allergies other causes are laringo pharingial acid reflux or disorder of swallowing. It may present with caughing constant swallowing, runny nose chronic sorethroat.
Treatment depends upon the cause. My advise wil be to see an ENT specialist for full investigations and treatment.

It seems like postnasal drip in which excess mucus trickle down from the back of the nose and continously irritate the throat thus causing constant cough.
Stay hydrated to make mucus thinner.Drink 8-10 glasses of water /day.
Salt water gargles are useful.
Septilin losenzes are to be chewed thrice daily.
Allergens should be avoided as they increase mucus production like dust,chemical sprays and even humidity.
Neti will wash the passage and mucus but should be done under supervision of ayurveda expert.
