Thank you for your question.
Coughing is a process to expel foreign matter in the respiratory tract. Coughing itself can be caused by several types of causes, because coughing is a common symptom, I will try to explain several possible causes, including:
allergic, which is a disorder in the body's immune system. Allergy is a disease that cannot be cured. Allergies can only reduce the level of recurrence and also reduce symptoms. Allergy to the respiratory tract can be characterized by repeated coughing or colds that do not heal, sometimes the child is also accompanied by sneezing. Asthma is a disease caused by allergies. Which is marked by coughing, runny nose and shortness of breath. infection, a cough caused by an infection usually accompanied by a cold. In general, if an infection is caused by a virus it will heal itself for 3 days. But if a bacterial infection, complaints of cough and colds will require healing time of more than 3 days and accompanied by phlegm and shortness of breath. there are several types of diseases, namely: pneumonia. stomach acid, a cough caused by stomach acid due to reflux or backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus which will cause irritation of the esophagus, causing coughing. Gastric acid in children can be caused by poor diet, for example, often eating spicy foods, having difficulty eating or irregular eating patterns, and also drinking too much. in addition to inflammation caused by stomach acid, inflammation caused by other irritants, namely bronchitis. which is characterized by bronchitis marked with a long cough. Need to know, if you want to determine the diagnosis, it is necessary to do an interview and further physical examination. So my advice is to have your child consult a pediatrician. because if needed, the doctor will conduct a supporting examination such as rongten, etc.
May be useful. Always healthy 😊
