I have a cough for a month, can it be TB Tuberculosis?

Does only cough from a month means tb, the cough is not sever it comes 5-6 times a day but when oily food is taken it increases, cough is not with sputum, a month before cough was started with cold flu symptoms but met a gp and got medicines but cold was cured but cough is lasting still, is the cough is due viral infection or is it tb or other sever disease symptoms?

Hi..
For now you can take cough suppressants like Dextromethorphan and a combination of Levocetrizine and Monteulokast..
