Hi thanks for the question


Coughing is one of the body's responses to expel mucus or irritants in the respiratory tract. Cough is divided into dry cough and cough with phlegm (actively producing phlegm). Generally, the cough will go away on its own in a matter of weeks, if the cough does not go away for more than 1 month, it may be caused by the following conditions:

tuberculosis
Asthma
Allergic rhinitis
Chronic bronchitis (COPD)

Coughing for more than 2 weeks is one of the symptoms of tuberculosis (TB). This disease can be accompanied by symptoms: cold sweats at night, cough with blood, fever, and weight loss. In addition, coughing for more than 1 month can also be caused by allergic reactions such as allergic rhinitis. This condition is triggered by allergens such as cold conditions, dust, exposure to smoke, flower pollen and other allergens.


To determine the cause of coughing, you should check with your doctor, the doctor will perform a physical examination and supporting examinations such as blood tests, sputum tests and chest X-rays to look for the cause of cough.


I hope this information is helpful


Regards
