Hello, Hoedman, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Coughing is one of the body's responses in preventing and releasing foreign substances / objects into the respiratory tract. Cough can be caused due to inflammation of the respiratory tract due to viral / bacterial infections, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), irritation of the airways, GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) / Gastric Acid Disease, etc.
To determine the cause, further examination by a doctor needs to be done. Examinations needed start from digging personal health history, family health history, environment, complete physical examination, and supporting examinations, such as chest X-ray, spirometry (to evaluate lung function), complete blood tests, to allergy tests. Treatment depends on the cause and severity.
Allergy is a condition where someone has sensitivity to something and reacts more than other people. Cough is one of the symptoms that can occur when allergic, in addition to coughing can also appear swollen, itchy, reddish skin, sneezing, runny nose, runny tears, until shortness of breath. The characteristics of someone allergic to something are these symptoms appear every time a person is exposed to certain exposure, for example dust, certain foods / drinks, certain medicines, cold temperatures, etc. Often, people who have allergies have a family history of allergies too. But to be sure, it is necessary to do further tests to the doctor, especially to the doctor of internal medicine.
If the cough is felt continuously for more than 2 weeks, accompanied by fever, night sweats, there is blood / phlegm coming out of cough, weight loss, shortness of breath, you should not delay to consult a doctor. Avoid things that you suspect can trigger a cough, such as cold air. Also avoid things that can irritate the respiratory tract further, such as motor vehicle fumes, cigarette smoke, odors that are too strong, etc.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
