When you have a persistent cough, it can be quite difficult for you to find the cause of it. It may simply be a cold, or it could be a much more troubling problem at hand. No matter how severe your persistent cough is, it can seriously upset your lifestyle, cause sleep deprivation and loss in sleep quality, and other respiratory issues that can disrupt your daily life. There are many causes to these coughs that the providers and staff at Arcadia Allergy & Asthma can locate.
Sometimes persistent coughs are caused by asthma symptoms, nasal drainage, and sometimes even acid reflux. These causes can vary between children and adults, as asthma is the main cause among children while nasal drainage is the culprit for adults.
