It could be an allergy. It could be asthma. It could be bronchitis. It could be pneumonia. It could be cancer. See a doctor.

I'd confirm the advice to see a doctor.

I can say that every time we go to India, we develop cold like symptoms - likely in response to the pollution. It goes away after we leave India in a matter of days. So, your experience is not too uncommon.

I also develop a cough each time I'm in India. It starts within a couple days. For me, it's likely due to the pollution, dust & cigarette smoke. But last time I returned my cough lasted for a couple weeks. I'm not saying mine & yours are the same, just want to ease your concerns. But get it checked out if it lingers much longer or immediately if your gut is telling you to.

Pollution gives me a chest infection, every time I visit Delhi. It takes about a week to develop and it starts with a sore throat and a cough.
Better go see a doctor, just in case you need some medication.

It wasn't the cough that carried him off, but the coffin they carried him off in

So don't worry about a cough.
Lord, Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill because they pissed me off.

Off Topic: Recollected a joke I read somewhere. A smoker bought a packet of cigarettes from the vendor. On the packet, as it is mandatory to issue a warning, it was written smoking causes impotency. On seeing it he asked to vendor to take the packet back and give him another in which the warning is smoking causes cancer.
