it can be an asthmatic cough. you can continue dexthromethorphan syrup, along with that use wysolone tablets 10 mg three times a day after food. should help. try to avoid any allergen causing a trigger like dust, pollen, cold foods or cold water. if symptoms still continue or recurs, need to start on inhalers & preventers for the same.
