can chewing tobacco cause chronic cough?

Unlikely: The most common causes of chronic cough are asthma, allergic rhinitis, sinus infections and acid reflux from the stomach. A person with a chronic cough should be evaluated so a treatment can be directed at the cause of the cough. Even though chewing tobacco is unlikely to trigger a chronic cough, there are serious adverse effects including cancer of the mouth.
