Hi Femila,

Coughing is basically the body's normal response to a foreign object or something in the airway.

Generally coughs are caused by:

Infection, both bacteria and viruses Allergic reactions Foreign objects that enter the respiratory tract Other diseases outside the respiratory tract A long cough, it can be an allergic reaction, chronic infection, gastric disease, use of certain drugs, and the environment.

You need to have this checked, especially if it lasts more than 2 weeks, is accompanied by a fever, prolonged fever, weight loss, coughing up blood, or shortness of breath.

Generally, x-rays, complete blood tests, sputum tests, lung function tests, allergy tests, stomach acid tests, EKG, and other examinations deemed necessary by your doctor will be carried out.

Our suggestions:

Wear a mask, to avoid spreading your cough to other people, or avoiding exposure to dust / fume / other allergens. Pay attention to certain food / beverage ingredients that can cause allergies. Keep the humidity in your house / environment. Use a humidifier if necessary. Eat regularly every day, avoid foods that are too sweet or oily to prevent the cough from getting worse. Thus, hope it can help.
