Dry cough lasting 3 months after flu

Hi. I'm a 33 years old guy who got a cold about 3 1/2 months ago. However, the cold is gone but I have remained with a strong dry cough that acts up basically anytime during the day/night. When I laugh I normally end up with a cough fit that lasts a few seconds. Also, about two years ago I had a similar chronic dry cough after a cold but I can't remember how it eventually stopped. I do not have asthma nor I'm a smoker / excessively exposed to second-hand smoke. How can I stop this cough???

You can have several things.  You may not have been diagnosed with asthma, but that is one potential cause of a chronic cough.  Acid reflux, vocal cord dysfunction and a host of other issues can be the cause as well.  For an accurate diagnosis you should see your doctor.

Take care.
