    Is it a dry couch or "productive" (plegm, mucus)?
    It depends on what kind of cough you have. I have dry cough, and doc. suspect Sjogrens. This can make you very dry. Clear fluids will not help, but milk seem to help create some coating in my throat that makes my cough better.

    if it's from an old cold, a cough is usually the last thing to go. I've had those remain for weeks in the past.

    have you seen you physician about this? There can be medical causes for this, other than bacteria or viruses.
