Many causes: There are many causes of a cough. A virtual appointment is available on Healthtap. The causes may include infection, asthma or an impingement of the airway. If the cough lingers for more than 3 weeks, please see your PCP. Watch for signs of fever, shortness of breath and chills. If these occur, please call your PCP. Drink fluids, rest and monitor your temperature. Honey may be helpful.
