What is allergic cough? Allergic cough refers to cough associated with allergies. It generally occurs when the person suffering with allergies is already a “cougher” or someone who is hard-wired to cough. Allergies are very effective irritants that may be triggering your cough. Chronic Cough is usually a response to irritation.
Seasonal and year-round, indoor and outdoor, allergies may be the underlying condition triggering your cough IF you are hard-wired to cough.
Constant allergic coughing is uncomfortable, disruptive and annoying to you and those around you. In addition to producing cough in people who are already “coughers” or hard-wired to cough, an allergic response can be serious, and in some cases, even life threatening.
If you are coughing and believe it may be associated with allergies, it is your best interest to be evaluated by an Allergy and Asthma specialist rather than to self-medicate symptoms.
