Coughing

I seem to cough all the time...it seems to be a dry, tickling cough.  I cough till I get sick.  Can you tell me what I can take to take away the cough.  Any over the counter cough meds do not work.  Seems like the only thing that helps this cough is codeine medicine or like percocet pain medicine...in which both is hard to get doctor to give prescription for.  Can you help with any suggestions on home remedies that i could try?  Please help!

Have you tried an antihistamine?

rushtyyyyy
green and yellow flem should not be coming up from allergy unless it is stomach acid. Usually allergy is clear mucus. I'm not a doctor but I wonder if it is a bacteria infection. Sorry I don't know the correct answer. Maybe the doctors are correct too. I just personally haven't heard of colored mucus from allergy. Allergy can cause mucus that can lead to bacteria infection too. See another doctor.
