If this is a dry cough, then a dose of cough suppressant might help. Dextromethorphan (DM) is a simple cough suppressant. If you actually need to loosen phlegm then that would be an expectorant (guaifenesin). Keep it simple and minimal, don't get a multi-symptom remedy for a dry cough.

You can use a hose cover to help with the condensation until you get a heated hose(however long that is). You can use it with your heated hose also, if you like it.

Regarding dry cough, I would use Guaifenesin for that also - and would do it first, lots of times some extra membrane secretions will wash away whatever is irritating the membranes. I find Guaifenesin helps with bloody noses, dry cough, sinus headache, etc.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night
