Allergic coughing is usually related to a postnasal drip caused by exposure to a certain allergen. Avoiding the allergen might be the obvious route to reducing allergic coughing, but when the cause of the allergy cannot be established or completely avoided, antihistamines, decongestants and topical glucocorticoids are often prescribed to suppress the allergic reaction and subsequent discharge of mucus in the nasal passages. This article provides a brief review for the pharmacist on the underlying causes, symptoms and management of the allergic cough.
