A cough caused by an allergy usually lasts from days to months. It begins as soon as the person gets exposed to allergens and remain till exposure to allergens continue. It can be attended with a runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes, itchy throat, and sore throat. Fever doesn’t appear in an allergic cough.
