    Hello. It may not be an allergy especially since it started in Dec which was a cold, dry and dusty month. I'd say it's viral in origin and will relieve with time, with cough syrup and a lot of vitamin C. But did you say you took Amlodipine for the cough? That is an antihypertensive drug and not an antibiotic. You take care now.
