I have suffered from chronic cough for over 2 years. It is mostly under control at this point and regulated by a bronchial inhaler when needed.
Since your doctor doesn't appear to be concerned, I would recommend seeing a pulmonary specialist. They should be able to determine if there's a blockage, asthma or something else that is causing it. They may also be able to prescribe something to help get the cough under control. Be cautious with of the meds they prescribe because there's been some push toward Advair and others that have steroids in them.
Also, I've learned that cold food and drinks will make my cough worse where as things like warm tea will not.
