Causes Cough Only In The Morning?
.. why if you cough every morning even though you don’t cough in the afternoon … what is the cause of the cough that morning
Coughing complaints that always occur every morning can be caused by rhinitis. Rhinitis can be caused by the condition of the room being too cold (morning is generally cooler), using air conditioning that has not been cleaned for a long time, mites, exposure to dust, cigarette smoke. In addition to coughing, rhinitis can also cause other complaints such as sneezing, watery eyes, itchy nose, and nasal congestion. The main treatment for rhinitis is to avoid triggering factors and to reduce complaints, you can use antihistamines.
However, in addition to rhinitis, cough complaints that often occur must also be watched out for due to other things, such as tuberculosis, bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, bronchiectasis, and respiratory infections.
To reduce cough complaints, you can do the following tips:
Set the room temperature so it's not too cold Clean the room and change bed linen regularly Consume warm food and drinks in the morning Wear a jacket or thick clothes in the morning Get enough rest Regular exercise to keep the body in good condition Gargle warm salt water If with the tips above, you still have a cough continues to occur, or cough accompanied by phlegm for more than 3 weeks, coughing up blood, decreased appetite, weight loss, and night sweats, I suggest that you consult a doctor directly so that further examination can be done, for example with a sputum test and X-rays to determine the cause of your cough. Furthermore, if the cause is known, then the doctor can provide the right treatment for you.
