Dry cough

Characterized by little or no mucus, it is caused by irritation or inflammation in the throat and chest.

A dry cough often occurs alongside a tickly cough and can be caused by viral infections or allergies. Unlike a wet cough, a dry cough does not produce any mucus and is therefore referred to as “non-productive.”

This page provides information on inflammation: causes, symptoms, and treatments. There is also a Q&A service which gives you the opportunity to ask any further questions.
