Everything to know about your persistent coughs


Continuous coughing with signs of cold and fever.

The most common cause of chronic cough is predictable. It's the aftermath of a cold or other viral infection, says Norman H. Edelman, MD, chief medical officer of the American Lung Association. [1]

- Completely treatable under proper medical examinations
- Can happen to anyone
- Mostly the aftermath of a cold
- Medium term disease

A Residual cough is also known as a post viral cough that can be common signs and symptoms of respiratory infections. Usually this cough goes away after proper treatment but in some or few cases, this cough can recur even after being healed. Experts arent sure why viral or Residual cough can be chronic but with proper treatment and care, it can be healed within days.

Ages affected - between 20 - 30 - More Often; between 30 - 40 - Often; 40 and above - few


Symptoms may last for days or three with a sore or an irritated throat with hoarseness in the sound of the voice. Inflammation in the respiratory tracts can often lead to difficulty in breathing properly.

People may experience
Inflammation - mostly in the respiratory tracts
Sore throat - can happen with increase in level of coughing
Need to clear throat - mucus can form and get jammed which needs to be cleared
