Hello Sugi, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Cough is actually a defense mechanism for the body to remove mucus, dirt, or foreign substances that enter the respiratory tract. In general, cough can be divided into acute cough (occurs less than 3 weeks), subacute cough (occurs between 3-8 weeks), and chronic cough (occurs more than 8 weeks). If your cough has occurred for more than 3 years, then your cough is included in chronic cough. Chronic cough can be caused by many possibilities. Acid reflux disease (GERD) can be one of the causes, but it is also necessary to consider other possible causes, including:
Post nasal drip or the presence of mucus flowing from the back of the nose to the throat, can be caused by various conditions, such as allergies and sinusitis
Chronic bronchitis (most often caused by smoking)
Eosinophilic bronchitis, which is chronic inflammation of the lung bronchi similar to asthma, but is not related to certain triggers such as asthma
The use of antihypertensive drugs such as ACE-inhibitors
To find out the exact cause of the symptoms that you are experiencing, it helps you check yourself with a pulmonary doctor directly. The doctor can conduct a more complete medical interview (to explore other symptoms that you are experiencing, smoking history, exposure to certain chemicals, drugs taken, etc.), do a physical examination, as well as supporting examinations needed, for example chest x-ray examination or CT scan sputum examination, blood tests, etc.
Some things you can do right now include:
Avoid smoking and exposure to cigarette smoke
Reduce exposure to air pollution, wear a mask if indeed you have to leave the house and are exposed to a lot of pollution
Eat healthy and nutritious food regularly
Get enough sleep and rest
Use an air humidifier in your workspace or bedroom
Try drinking more water to help thin your phlegm to make it easier to remove
You can also take phlegm cough medicine that is sold freely in pharmacies
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
