COUGH

CAUSES – Anything that irritates the respiratory airways can produce a cough.  The common cold, flu, and sinusitis are the most common cause of an acute respiratory tract infection.  If you accidentally inhale small objects or breathe in irritants, they can produce a cough.  Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, in there are five types, can produce a dry cough.  An abnormal cough is one that is persistent.  It can be caused by allergies, asthma, or chronic bronchitis.

TREATMENT – Coughing is a normal protective response by the body.  For a bacterial infection, it is best to use an antibiotic.   A viral infection will normally be treated by rest, aspirin, or an acetaminophen followed by plenty of fluids.  Alternative choices may consist of the following:

  • Sang ju yin, a decoction of mulberry leaf and chrysanthemum
  • Herbal tea
  • Bryonia
  • Aconite
