Why do we cough?
Coughing is a reflex and a way to keep your throat and airways clear. Although it can be annoying and irritable, coughing helps your body heal or protect itself. Coughs can be either acute or chronic. Acute coughs can happen suddenly and usually last no more than 2 to 3 weeks. Acute coughs typically occur and are a result of when you have a cold, flu, or acute bronchitis. Chronic coughs can last longer than 2 to 3 weeks.
Causes of chronic cough include:
