What's the strange smell that's causing our cough?

Someone in my apartment building is smoking/making/cooking something that causes my girlfriend, daughter and I to cough. Any idea what it might be and what I could do about it?

It started last summer and for a few weeks there happened every other day. During the winter, it's happened very little but now they're doing it pretty regularly again and it's really badly affecting my four-month-old baby. It's not a constant cough but one that makes you cough very hard every five minutes or so and it makes my nose run. It smells awful and has a bit of a chemical smell to it. It permeates the apartment hallways and is difficult to pinpoint. Any idea what we could do about it?
