Suggest treatment for random cough attacks

I have these random cough attacks during the day probably 3- 5 times a day (for about 2 weeks), i had a cold a month ago but i dont feel sick anymore, these cough attacks are about 30sec long and my eyes turn red and occasionally I'll throw up, but i feel perfectly normal afterwords. Is there anything i can do to get rid of these random cough attacks?

Hi, thanks for your query. In my opinion, you might be having reflux disease.
If I were your treating doctor, I would have prescribed proton pump inhibitors with prokinetcs drug for 6 to 8 weeks.
Avoid oily and spicy foods.
Small and frequent feeds recommended.
Hope my answers have helped you. Thanks.
