What is cough and why do we cough?
Coughing is a way in which our body gets rid of foreign particles, irritants, microbes, mucus and bacteria – among other allergens from the throat. Coughing, by forcing air out of the lungs under high pressure, attempts to clear the throat of these foreign particles.
Here are some reasons of cough:
Asthma and allergies: For those who are allergic or have asthma, inhaling irritants such as mould can cause an overreaction in the lungs triggering a cough. The lungs try to get rid foreign substances by forcing a cough. A chronic dry cough could be a sign of mild asthma.
A viral infection: This is one of the most common causes of a cough which often appears as the flu symptoms retreat. A productive cough eliminates germy mucus from the lungs and should not be suppressed. Usually, it is not a cause for concern and if you have seen your GP for the flu, your GP would have informed you that this stage may follow.
Environmental factors: Exposure to environmental irritants such as pollen, dust, particulate matter, chemicals and pet dander can cause cough.
Common cold: This is an infection that attacks the upper respiratory system. It is caused by a virus that affects the nasal passage, throat, sinuses, trachea and Eustachian tube.
