Chronic Cough is a complex puzzle. Unraveling the triggers and underlying cause of Chronic Cough is a puzzle.  Secretary Clinton may be a Chronic Cough Ambassador.  Dr. Mandel Sher has never evaluated Mrs. Clinton but believes she may be “hard-wired” to cough.  In the absence of information, there’s speculation.  Mrs. Clinton is again having coughing spells on the campaign trail, most recently in Tampa.  Bloggers, doctors, supporters and opponents are opining on the cause of the candidate’s persistent cough.  Seasonal allergies? Bronchitis? Cough is disruptive, distracting, and disconcerting.

Dr. Sher explains that Chronic Cough affects children and adults and men and women.  But, women of Mrs. Clinton’s age group are most affected.  Dr. Sher and other physicians and scientists around the globe believe that unexplained Chronic Cough has a neurogenic component.  Simply put, that means irritants cause the nerve endings at the back of the throat to become “on fire” and trigger coughing spells – that’s it.  In persons with neurogenic Chronic Cough, Cough is THE problem, not a symptom of an underlying medical condition.  Prescription medication and voice therapy can be effective treatments.

Chronic Cough is an embarrassing  distraction and worry for your family, friends, and colleagues who may be speculating about your health.
