Hello, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
Cough is a common complaint but also very annoying. For information, coughing is a form of body defense in the form of airway reactions to remove foreign objects from the respiratory tract. Cough usually occurs due to irritation of the respiratory tract which can be caused by:
• Allergy
• Respiratory tract infections such as bronchitis, sore throat, laryngitis, tuberculosis, etc
• Viral infections
• Side effects of certain high blood pressure drugs such as captopril
• Smoking
• Respiratory tract irritation
• Pertussis

When a person has a cough, it causes the chest wall and abdominal muscles to contract. If a person has a frequent cough, it can sometimes cause pain in the chest and shoulders.

In addition to muscle contractions, chest pain can also be caused by a number of conditions such as:
• Injury to the muscles, for example from impact or during sports
• Cartilage infection
• Stomach diseases such as GERD
• Swallowing disorders
• Heart disease, pain usually subsides at rest, pain radiates to the left arm, neck, jaw, back, difficulty breathing, cold sweat, weakness etc.
• Respiratory system disorders
• Psychological such as anxiety, stress, panic, etc

To find out the exact cause of your complaint and get the right treatment according to your complaint, it is necessary to know the cause of your complaint beforehand. The doctor will conduct an examination and provide appropriate treatment according to the cause of your complaint. Therefore, I recommend checking with a doctor before taking certain drugs.

Some suggestions that you can do to help reduce cough complaints include:
• Consume warm honey water mixed with lemon
• Increase consumption of water, fruits and vegetables
• Avoid smoking, secondhand smoke, dusty places
• Adequate rest needs

That's my answer, I hope it's useful.
Regards, Dr. Sylvia
