Chronic Cough Q & A
What is a chronic cough?
There’s nothing wrong with the occasional cough. In fact, coughing is your body’s way of protecting itself by clearing irritants and secretions from your lungs.
If you’ve been coughing consistently for more than six weeks, you might have a chronic cough. In some cases, a chronic cough can be just a minor annoyance, but in other cases, it can be severe enough to disrupt your sleep or leave you with a fractured rib.
What are the symptoms of a chronic cough?
The most obvious symptom of a chronic cough is persistent coughing, but it can also produce other symptoms, like:
- Hoarseness or sore throat
- Runny nose or nasal congestion
- Shortness of breath or wheezing
- Postnasal drip, or the sensation that liquid is running down the back of your throat
- In some rare cases, a chronic cough can leave you coughing up blood.
What causes a chronic cough?
Many different factors can lead to a chronic cough, including:
- Undiagnosed environmental or food allergy
- Irritants in your environment
- Undiagnosed asthma or lung issues
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
A cough is usually a symptom of an underlying condition. Once you treat the condition that’s causing your cough, the cough should go away.
How do you treat a chronic cough?
If your chronic cough has lasted longer than six weeks and is affecting your quality of life, you should visit Cure Allergy Clinic for treatment. The practice functions as a chronic cough clinic and the team of professionals can help you figure out what’s causing your chronic cough and prescribe a treatment plan to resolve your issue.
Your particular treatment depends on the condition that’s causing your chronic cough.
Some of the remedies that Cure Allergy Clinic might use to treat these underlying conditions include:
- Acid blockers
- Inhaled asthma drugs
- Allergen Immunotherapy
The team of experts might also work with you to determine if your cough might be caused by environmental factors, such as something in your home that you might be allergic to. If such an irritant or allergen is causing your chronic cough, you might be able to find relief by minimizing contact with the substance.
