3 Reasons for Chronic Coughing

Coughing is a problem not to be ignored!

There are many possible reasons for a cough, and our pediatric and adult experts can determine why you are coughing and help get you better.

3 Most Common Chronic Cough Reasons

The three most common reasons for coughing are post-nasal drip, asthma, and acid reflux. Smoking and cancer can cause a cough, as well, so it is essential that anyone with a persistent cough be evaluated. You might say, I don’t think I have any of those conditions, but they might be sneakier than you realize.

Post-nasal drip

Everyone has some amount of post-nasal drip, but that amount can become abnormal and cause a cough in some people. Our experts can look for evidence of post-nasal drip, identify a cause such as allergies or sinus disease, and help treat it.


Many people don’t realize that there are many types of asthma, and just because they don’t walk around with an inhaler or have wheezing, it doesn’t mean they don’t have asthma. Did you know that coughing can be the only symptom of asthma? It is important to find out whether asthma is causing your cough because there are very safe and effective medications to prevent the cough and improve your quality of life. We can also identify triggers for your cough, such as allergies, irritants such as perfumes, or respiratory infections, so that you can do your best to avoid the cause.

Acid reflux

This is sometimes the sneakiest. You don’t have to have heartburn to have acid reflux. Our experts will decide if acid reflux might be playing a role in your cough. If you do have acid reflux, it is essential to identify and treat it because if it is uncontrolled over time, your esophagus can develop pre-cancerous changes.

Often, a combination of the above reasons causes a cough. Acid reflux can make asthma and sinus disease worse, and asthma can make acid reflux, causing a vicious cycle.

Most importantly, if you have had a persistent cough, our experts will talk to you, examine you, and maybe even do tests to decide if there is any concern of lung cancer, especially if you have any history of smoking. Even if you do not have a history of smoking, about 1/3 of lung cancer occurs in non-smokers, so it is essential to get evaluated. And of course, if you have a cough, please quit smoking if you are a smoker!
