Pulmonologist 's  Response
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Since your coughing is associated with climate change, possibility of seasonal allergic asthma is more likely.
So better to consult pulmonologist and get done clinical examination of respiratory system and PFT (Pulmonary Function Test).
If this shows obstructive defect then asthma is the cause for your coughing.
You will need inhaled bronchodilators (formoterol or salmeterol) and inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) (budesonide or fluticasone).
Oral combination of antihistamine (levocetrizine or fexofenadine) and anti allergic (montelukast) once a day at night time is also beneficial.
Don't worry, you will be alright with all these.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
