Chronic Cough

An occasional cough is quite normal and useful. It helps to clear foreign substances from your lungs and helps to prevent infection. If your cough lasts for weeks, there may be an underlying problem.

Chronic cough can be very frustrating and can impact multiple areas of your life. There are many causes of chronic cough, including

Lung diseases and disorders such as COPD or Asthma

Lung infection

Exposure to smoke

Exposure to other irritants or allergens

Acid reflux, or GERD

Sinus drainage

Our test protocol for chronic cough patients will thoroughly address these possibilities. Treatment, of course, depends upon the findings, and can include avoidance advice or medications.
