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)

Father and Daughter Having Fun
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.
