Hello Jose, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Coughing is the body's natural response to the defense system in removing foreign substances from the respiratory tract. Coughing that occurs occasionally is normal because it aims to move the phlegm that keeps breathing moist. A cough that occurs continuously and added to other symptoms can be a sign of a medical disorder. Coughing less than 3 weeks is still relatively acute. Dry cough is a cough that does not produce phlegm and feels itchy in the throat. Dry cough is mostly caused by a response from the presence of foreign objects in the respiratory tract such as allergens (allergens) or viral infections.
When microorganisms enter the respiratory system, the brain will send signals through the spinal cord to the muscles in the chest and stomach. The muscles will contract when the respiratory system tries to expel foreign substances. This is called a cough. When the coughing response appears repeatedly, the muscles will continue to contract and cough repeatedly so that it will also cause pain in the throat and chest as you feel now.
Basically a cough caused by viruses and allergies will heal by combating your strong immunity and avoiding allergens or cough triggers such as cold air, and foods that are too sweet. To reduce discomfort when coughing, you can make the following efforts:
Drink plenty of warm water because the liquid will help thin the phlegm in the throat.
Take lozenges to relieve your throat
Avoid smoke and dust, because it will irritate the respiratory tract
Avoid foods that have a sharp taste like too spicy or too sweet.
If you smoke, then stop smoking
Apply a healthy diet by increasing fiber and fruit consumption
Get enough rest, relax and manage stress
I hope this helps
