Cough signifies irritation or infection of the respiratory tract. It is an annoying but helpful symptom that allows you to expel "things" that have nothing to do inside. It is therefore better not to use antitussive medication at first.
Different types of cough
The dry cough is sputum-free. It often comes from the throat or trachea. The fat cough she comes from the bronchi. It is recognized by expectorate mucus (which is bronchial secretions).
Warning: a cough with bloody sputum (red or pink) requires urgent consultation.
