Persistent Cough

Your symptoms fit well with a diagnosis of allergic asthma.

Call your doctor's office. Let your doctor know if you have had new possible allergic exposures that might have triggered asthma, such as a new pet, a move to a new living location, or a new job location. If you are diagnosed with asthma by your doctor, then treatment can be started even if no allergy or other trigger has been identified.
