Wet vs. Dry Coughs

When you visit a provider for cough and congestion treatment, one of the first things they’ll need to determine is whether you have a wet cough or a dry cough. A wet cough (also known as a “productive cough”) brings up phlegm or mucus and may be accompanied by wheezing, a rattling feeling within the chest, a runny nose, and postnasal drip. Wet coughs are generally caused by asthma, bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the common cold, influenza (the flu), or pneumonia.

Dry coughs, on the other hand, do not bring up mucus. Many people describe this type of cough as one that causes a tickle in the back of the throat. Dry coughs are typically caused by irritation or inflammation within the respiratory tract, which may result from:

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • COVID-19
  • Croup
  • Environmental irritants (for example, air pollution, dust, or smoke)
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Laryngitis
  • Sinusitis
  • Tonsillitis
  • Upper respiratory infections (for instance, the common cold or the flu)

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
