How Long Does Cough Associated With Asthma Last
The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system.

Every winter I get a severe cough in spasms that lasts for 4 months.seems to be lasting longer each year.not asthma test done.Antibiotics no good ?
Possibilities...: A cough that lasts for 4 months is by definition a chronic cough. Possible causes include bronchospasm, GERD, sinus disease. Each of these should be aggressively treated until the cough is controlled. The likely diagnosis is bronchospasm which can be treated with bronchodilator and steroid inhalers. Antibiotics are not needed since an infection would be shorter duration. See a lung doctor. ...Read more

I had bronchitis. lost my voice for 3 days. Then i got a cough/lasted for 2 months now. Taken steroids, asthma and antibotics the cough wont go away.
Time for evaluation: If you haven't had a chest x ray, it would be a good start. You can have what is called increased vocal fold sensitivity after a cold, but that should last about this long. Other considerations are allergy, sinusitis, and reflux. Allergy and asthma should have at least temporarily improved on steroids. Seeing an ENT can frequently be a good start when dealing with chronic cough ...Read more

Post-nasal drip or any sinus condition can result in bronchospasm and, thus, the cough. Perhaps you need to add a nasal steroid spray to your regimen in addition to a steroid inhaler and your other meds. You may need a very slow steroid taper to get to the lowest possible effective dose. ...Read more
