Chronic Cough

Only a medical professional can tell for sure what's behind your chronic cough. It could be due to a number of conditions:

  • asthma
  • postnasal drip/sinus problems
  • allergies
  • gastroesophageal reflux (GERD)
  • chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • respiratory tract infection and/or pneumonia, bronchitis
  • environmental conditions; air pollution, fumes, molds
  • smoking
  • ACE inhibitors or other drug reactions
  • pertussis (whooping cough)
  • Less commonly:
  • sarcoidosis
  • congestive heart failure
  • emphysema 

Treatment depends on the underlying cause and can vary from changes in lifestyle to administering medications to surgery or a combination of all three. Don't live with an annoying chronic cough or casually dismiss the symptoms. Let Dr. Nancy Becker and her team relieve your symptoms and return you to good health.
