Chronic cough with wheezing

I've had a chronic cough since May, mainly accompanied by a wheeze. It's always worse at night, I wake up wheezing which makes me cough severely. I've been to gp's and censored, Chinese herbalist etc but have yet to get a diagnosis. Lung X-rays have come back clear, as have asthma tests. But I've tested positive for dust mites. I've taken various antibiotics and prescribed medication and puffers - all of which have had little to no effect. I then started taking Telfast which has been the only thing that helped, it stops the wheeze and therefore the cough. I don't really have any other symptoms of hay fever and have never suffered from it previously. But this has been a miracle cure for my cough, but if it's Hayfever how did the doctors miss it?? This cough has been a huge source of frustration for me, just wondering if anyone else suffers from this or heard of this happening before?

I have similar cough and as I thought I was recovering it relapses from Thunderstorm Asthma and still coughing but getting better. I do suffer from hayfever & could be a combination of cold and hayfever triggering this cough. I have noticed people in my office who doesn't have hayfever catching this virus which gives sore throat which then develops into cough. A hayfever sufferer became asthmatic for the first time! My husband who is never sick was also coughing but have since recovered when he left for overseas trip. Definitely related to allergens. I use combination of dry cough mixture at night to get me to sleep and herbal to control hayfever. The antihistamines treats the symptoms & then when it wears out it causes thick mucous that makes my breathing difficult so I stop all the Telfast but do a double dose of Vit C with Garlic Horseradish 2 times a day. Hope this help, don't worry it will go away. My GP gave me a dose of antibiotic which I completed but didnt help. My productive is less each morning but I guess its my body system detoxifying. By end of Dec the pollen normally settle & hayfever goes away hope your cough will too.

Has anyone tried wearing a mask -like is used in high pollution countries - they work great for that, so maybe would reduce the allergy symptoms - nothing entered through your nose and mouth?

Vitamin C is one of the most effective and common remedies for coughing.
My grandma usually makes a pot of lemon honey to treat this. :)
