CoughingCould be. But if that is your only symptom, it is more likely an allergy. Does it come around the same time every year? You could be allergic to something in the air.

I had a cough for 6 months with no other symptoms every year around Aug thru Nov. Now that I am working on my Allergies that time period is not as bad as before.

Allergy tests are not painful and very very useful.

It is not necessary that coughing is because of Asthma only. There are other symptoms like wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath which can confirm that you have asthma. It is better to consult your doctor for the same.
