In brief: Dust

Dust inhalation should generate much coughing and the most important measure is to avoid dusty environments and even wear a mask if you must work in dusty conditions.
If you're experiencing significant cough, production of discolored sputum, shortness of breath, chest pain on inspiration or wheezing, it's important to consult your physician or a pulmonologist for diagnosis and treatment.
