Could you try a humidifier w/ warm mist and the vapor liquid added? This helped for me. Also lots of liquids to drink and maybe a special honey/lemon type of drop or tea or sryup?

Hope you feel better soon.

The best thing as far as a script for dry cough is called Tessalon. They are tiny little round clear pills that work the best for this dry cough thingy going around.
They gave to me in the er when I went in with this cough and cold. But I have been knowing about it for years from my Doc. Good luck
