Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Repeated cold cough can be caused by the following things, namely:
1. Caused by allergic factors so that if the allergen trigger is not avoided complaints will appear repeatedly.
2. Caused by a bacterial infection that is not treated properly (do not seek treatment, do not take medication regularly, do not take antibiotics as directed by the doctor or bacteria are resistant to the antibiotics consumed.
3. There are nasal anatomic abnormalities, such as deviation of the nasal septum (the dividing wall of the bent nostril).
4. As a result of chronic sinusitis, chronic tonsillitis, etc.
In this case, you should consult with an ENT doctor in order to carry out the examination and further treatment accordingly.
Meanwhile, you can try to overcome it by routine nose cicing. The method is to warm the physiological NaCl liquid (buy at a pharmacy), then put the liquid in a 3 cc syringe, then spray it into the nose with the needle removed first. Do the left and right nasal cavity. When washing your right nose, you sleep on your left side, then spray the liquid into the wall of the nasal cavity which will be cleaned thoroughly. Do the same thing in the next nasal cavity. In addition, consumption is also lots of warm water or honey mixed with squeezed oranges and brewed warm water.
Thus hopefully useful.
