Hello,

Causes of dry cough can be many.Common ones include cigarette smoking,asthma,post nasal drip,sinusitis,GERD(gastoesphageal reflux disease),bronchitis,pneumonia,sarcoidosis,tumors and medicines like antihypertensives like ACE inhibitors.

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a chronic, progressive and genetic (inherited) disease of the body's exocrine (mucus producing) glands.It primarily affects the respiratory, digestive and reproductive systems, as well as the sweat glands.Diagnosed by sweat electrolyte tests.

I feel that without clinical examination,diagnosis is very tough.So pls consult a respiratory physician for confirming a diagnosis after discussing these possibilities with him.

Hope it helps.Take care andpls do keep me posted on how you are doing.
