A cough is a noisy forceful release of air from the lungs. Coughing protects the respiratory system by clearing it of irritants and secretions.
In the majority of cases, coughs are caused by respiratory infections, including:

  • colds or influenza, the most common causes of coughs
  • bronchitis, an inflammation of the mucous membranes of the bronchial tubes
  • croup, a viral inflammation of the larynx, windpipe, and bronchial passages that produces a bark-like cough in children
  • whooping cough, a bacterial infection accompanied by the high-pitched cough for which it is named
  • pneumonia, a potentially serious bacterial infection that produces discolored or bloody mucus

Outside allergens: pollens, grasses etc

Indoor allergens: pet dander, dust mites, mould spores etc

Environmental pollutants, such as cigarette smoke, dust or smog can also cause a cough. In the case of cigarette smokers the nicotine present in the smoke paralyzes the hairs (cilia) that regularly flush mucus from the respiratory system. The mucus then builds up forcing the body to remove it by coughing. Post-nasal drip, the irritating trickle of mucus from the nasal passages into the throat caused by allergies or sinusitis, can also result in a cough. Some chronic conditions, such as asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and cystic fibrosis, are characterized in part by a cough. A condition in which stomach acid backs up into the esophagus (gastroesophageal reflux) can cause coughing, especially when a person is lying down. A cough can also be a side-effect of medications that are administered via an inhaler. It can also be a side-effect of beta-blockers and ACE inhibitors, which are drugs used for treating high blood pressure.
