I have taken allergy test also which comes normal in report and chest xray also normal. There is no any other symptoms other than cough. Sometimes throat irritation comes. What can I do now? I am fed up with this cough.

Cough could be due to acid reflux.    take hot saline gargles atleast 5 - 6 times a day, it will help to clear the throat .  steam inhalation also helps to clear respiratory passages.  sprinkling eucalyptus oil on the clothes and pillows while sleeping will help.  elevating the upper body and head by propping up with 2 - 3 pillows at night will help to relieve post nasal drip which worsens dry cough.  hot soup infused with ginger, tulsi, pepper should be taken.  avoid cold food. Eat fresh homemade steaming hot food. take lots of fluids - water, soups, dal ka paani  take some proton pump inhibitors and antacid syrup.
