I Cant Stop Wheezing And Coughing
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. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more

I've had an audible wheeze and cough for two weeks. I don' t feel ill but my husband is concerned. Any advice?
When you cough every day and have a distinct wheeze and bronchial secretions, what medications should you take?
Persistant asthma: Guidelines say start w/ low dose inhaled steroid and as needed rescue inhaler (albuterol). Combo inhaler (advair symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) dulera) might be overkill, but could start w them and ease back when better. Singular less attractive unless allergy a problem too. Should get PFT to assess lung function, and follow up to check progress. Allergy testing for root causes. Read more
I have had a bad dry violent cough for about 6-8 weeks now. What can cause this? Haven't been wheezing it just sort of started 7 wks ago
Pertussis?: See your doctor. If you are not on a medicine that causes cough, and you don't have seasonal allergies, asthma or lung disease, a cough lasting longer than 8 weeks is likely to represent Pertussis (whooping cough). There is no treatment for pertussis unless caught in the first couple days, but there is an effective vaccination to prevent the next episode. Some things help symptoms. Read more

Having a wheezing cough once every few months. As in 2 coughs and a wheeze and its gone. What can be the cause of this? I feel great and don't have all
Are you sure:
Wheezing is evidence of reactive airways and/or inflammation. Some may have reactivity during respiratory illnesses and therefore would not carry the label of asthma. If more chronic, some degree of asthma may be the appropriate designation.
More important is to be evaluated to see if an acute or chronic medication can help your symptoms. Read more
