Identify trigger: The most important aspect to treating a cough is to identify the trigger. By knowing what is causing the cough, a helpful treatment can be offered. There are multiple reasons for cough ranging from infections, asthma, allergies, acid reflux, foreign body in the lungs, tumor, heart failure, side effect from medications, etc. This is just a partial list. A lung specialist can assist.

Identify trigger: Cough and wheeze are common symptoms of asthma. If these symptoms have been recurrent, frequent or persistent, the person should be evaluated by a lung specialist such as an allergist or pulmonologist. The treatment will depend on the severity and duration of symptoms. Wheezing is a significant problem and should not be downplayed.

Cough: Depends on the cause. If it is allergies, seek an allergy treatment. If it is an infection or post-infectious cough, then see a doctor for treatment. Maybe it is a new pet in the house or a new medication or a new plant or herbal supplement or food you started. Maybe it is uncontrolled reflux. Main thing....See a doctor.
