Hi Irgi, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Here are some of the causes of prolonged cough / chronic cough:
- The occurrence of lung infections, such as pneumonia, tuberculosis.
- Immune system / immune system is low as in children or babies
- Inflammation of the respiratory tract / bronchitis
- Cigarette smoke
- Cold air
- And others..
Here are things you can do at home to help deal with complaints: avoid your child from cigarette smoke, avoid your child from air pollution, provide good nutrition to children, and maintain a comfortable room temperature for your child (warm temperature).
If complaints occur continuously and do not improve, then you should do an examination with a pediatrician. The pediatrician will later conduct a brief interview, physical examination and additional examinations (supporting examinations) if needed.
If your child experiences complaints such as difficulty breathing, severe pain, then immediately take it to the doctor.
