It is not at all uncommon for a cough to develop or persist after complete clinical resolution of a cold, and cold symptoms. The cold is caused by one of a variety of viruses and these same viruses can increase the sensitivity of cough receptors (nerve endings) in the throat, larynx and even the bronchial tubes, especially in those who have in the past had any symptoms of asthma. Your cough should begin to subside over the next month. If it does not, that would be reason to consult with your doctor, given the possibility that your cough proves to be other than what I have proposedl.
