I have a horrible cough, how can I get rid of it?

Around last week, I started getting flu symptoms such as body aches, chills, fever, etc. Now this week, I have a horrible cough I cannot get rid of. It's dry but sometimes sounds congested but I don't feel it in my chest. I have some nasal congestion. 

Yesterday and today, I have been getting horrendous cough attacks at work to the point where I have to run to get water. It's gotten to the point where I get minor relief from cough drops. If I don't have a cough drop in my mouth, I start coughing a lot. I'm starting to lose my voice. 

What can I do to curb this cough?
