From the information you convey, a cough during sleep may be caused by inflammation in your airways. This can be caused by several things, such as:
1. smoking habits
2.industrial dust or industrial pollution
3. physical fatigue
4. respiratory infection
5. sleep apnea
However, all these complaints need to be confirmed by interview and direct examination by a doctor, either a neurologist or a pulmonary specialist. Investigations can be done such as blood tests, x-rays or sleep studies.
Treatment will be given according to the results of the examination obtained.
What you need to do is:
1. ideal weight
2. Avoid physical fatigue
3. do regular exercise
4.Stop smoking if you smoke
5. if exposed to pollution, then use a mask to reduce exposure to pollution
This is the information we can convey.
