Any cough that lasts beyond 2 weeks is chronic.

There are many causes of persistent or prolonged coughs for example bronchial asthma or tuberculosis e.t.c.

It is very important that the CAUSE is identified FIRST.

So, see a doctor preferably a Paediatrician at any teaching hospital for a thorough evaluation and treatment.
