Cough Definition

boy coughing

A cough is the body's way of cleaning its airways. It is a natural reflex to irritants and even though a cough can be annoying or a sign of illness it is a necessary function. A cough is classified by how long it lasts: an acute cough lasts up to three weeks; 3-8 weeks is subacute; more than 8 weeks is considered chronic. Common causes of a cough are colds, respiratory infections, irritations by airborne particles, asthma and acid reflux (GERD). Home remedies can provide short-term relief, strengthen the respiratory system and help to remedy the cause of a cough. However, if you have a cough that lasts beyond three weeks you should definitely counsult a doctor.
