Chronic Cough Facts
Chronic cough is a cough that persists over time. Chronic cough is not a disease in itself, but rather a symptom of an underlying condition.
Causes of chronic cough include:
  • smoking,
  • asthma,
  • hay fever (allergic rhinitis),
  • sinus problems and post-nasal drip,
  • GERD,
  • cystic fibrosis,
  • whooping cough (pertussis)
  • Infections
  • Medications

Treatment for chronic cough is based on addressing the underlying cause.
Home remedies to ease symptoms of chronic cough include:
  • staying hydrated,
  • gargling with warm saltwater,
  • cough drops,
  • honey
  • ginger
Chronic cough may be prevented by not smoking, and managing medical problems such as asthma, postnasal drip, GERD, and getting vaccinated against whooping cough.
