What is Cough?

What happens in Cough?
There are generally 4 types of cough:
- Wet cough, also called as Productive cough, is a cough that typically brings up mucus. Wet coughs are commonly caused by a cold or the flu.
- Dry cough does not bring up mucus. It mainly occurs because of inflammation or irritation in the respiratory tract, but no excess mucus to cough up.
- Croup is a viral infection that typically affects children age 5 and younger. Croup causes the upper airway to become irritated and swollen making it difficult to breathe.
- Pertussis, also known as whooping cough, is a bacterial infection that causes violent coughing fits. During whooping cough attacks, the lungs release all the oxygen they have, causing people to inhale violently with a “whoop” sound.
Whom does it affect?
- People of any age can get cough of any of the four types and it is no gender specific as well.
- People with low immunity and hyper sensitivity people are more prone to dry and allergic cough.
