Hello Dini, thank you for the question.
Coughing is the body's defense response to irritation in the airways due to mucus, food, dust, smoke, and others. The causes of this cough are numerous, including:
Upper respiratory tract infections Asthma allergies Diseases of the lungs, such as pulmonary tuberculosis Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) Foreign body airways etc. Fever indicates an inflammatory reaction or an infection in the body so the brain will respond by raising body temperature to kill the germs that cause. In your case, fever can be caused by inflammation of the airways. In addition to fever, other body responses due to this inflammation are headache, joint pain, and can cause shortness of breath if the coughing is excessive and is followed by narrowing of the airways. This usually occurs in patients with asthma or COPD. If the complaint is felt to be very severe, you should consult a doctor to ascertain the cause of the cough, so that treatment will be more appropriate. Instead, avoid cigarette smoke, dust, pollution, and other chemicals, keep the air clean at home, use masks, avoid eating foods that are greasy, too spicy, too acidic, or too hot. Increase consumption of water at least 2L per day, avoid cold drinks because it can stimulate coughing, consumption of warm water to help reduce coughing, adequate rest, and eat healthy and nutritious foods.
Thus, hopefully useful.
