Coughing for a week without other cold symptoms. What could be wrong?

Hi. I've been coughing for a week without having any other symptoms.

My chest feels congested and my throat is itchy. But other than that, there are no other symptoms.

What could be wrong? I've been taking cough syrups and they don't help my cough at all.

Go see an allergist and immunologist.. Could be an allergy or asthma, or both.

I also had this cough it lasted for along time. I tryed cough syrups went to the doctor nothing seemsed to help. It just something that needs to take time to get over with.

Are you also coughing alot of st night. I was told at night to take some Vicks rub you rub it on your feet put some socks on and that will help witht he night coughing it seemed to help a bit.

Good luck. And I hope you feel better soon.
