How are you? What other symptoms are present? Chronic or irritating cough may warrant further evaluation to rule out infection, allergy, or pulmonary issues including malignancy. You may indeed benefit from further evaluation by a doctor for proper diagnosis. Imaging studies or diagnostic tests may also be requested to determine the underlying cause. Take care and do keep us posted.
