Response from Dr. McGovern

I doubt your cough has anything to do with HBV.

I am happy TB is not a concern.

I would obtain a chest x-ray. If this is negative, then you may want to discuss with your doctor all the causes of cough- bronchitis, reactive airways disease, acid reflux, and others. If it still continues, you will want to see a pulmonary doctor. Dr. M
