What causes a cough?cough

Most people with a cough have a respiratory tract infection caused by a virus. Possible non-infectious causes include:

  • allergic rhinitis, such as hay fever
  • a flare-up of a long-term condition such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or chronic bronchitis
  • gastro-oesophageal reflux disease – due to irritation and damage caused by stomach acid 
  • smoking

In rare cases it may be the first sign of a condition causing a long-term cough.


Dry or chesty ccough posterough?

Dry coughs are usually felt in the throat as a tickle that sets off the coughing.

It happens when the throat and upper airways become inflamed (swollen). No phlegm (thick mucus) is produced.

The common cold or flu causes a dry cough because your brain thinks the inflammation in your throat and upper airways is a foreign object and tries to remove it by coughing.

A chesty cough usually produces phlegm. The cough is helpful, because it clears the phlegm from your lung passages.


Treatment?cough med two

There’s no quick way of getting rid of a cough caused by a viral infection. It will usually clear up after your immune system has fought off the virus.

If there is an underlying condition causing a cough, this will need specific treatment.
