Do You Have a Wet Cough or a Dry Cough?
To answer this, you’ll need to ask yourself the following series of questions about your cough symptoms:
- Is your cough bringing up phlegm or mucus?
- Are you wheezing?
- Do you have a rattling feeling inside your chest?
- Are you experiencing a runny nose or postnasal drip?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you most likely have a wet cough (also referred to as a “productive cough”). This type of cough is often caused by asthma, bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the common cold, influenza (the flu), or pneumonia.
If you answered “no” to the questions listed above, then you probably have a dry cough. This type of cough typically results from respiratory tract irritation or inflammation, which may in turn be caused by allergies, asthma, COVID-19, croup, an environmental irritant, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), laryngitis, a sinus infection, tonsilitis, or an upper respiratory infection such as a cold or the flu.
