you have allergic cough, so when you get exposure to allergans you got coughing.
if coughing persistant than you consult your doctor and take treatment for that.
if recurrent , than go for allergic tests and immunotherapy.

Hi welcome to healthcare magic forum

Since the cough is from past 5 months, each episodes last for 1 hr, it is suggestive of COPD( chronic obstuctive pulmonary disease).. but you needed to be examined & x-ray is need to make a diagnosis..hence consult a physician...
