Cough

Coughing is a way for the respiratory tract to try to get rid of something that is irritating. Most often, the cough is due to a cold and then it goes off by itself, although it can take several weeks. Cough may also be due to other diseases of the airways or lungs, or that the airways are irritated by, for example, smoke.
