Dry Cough Overview

A dry cough or “non-productive cough” can be caused by a variety of conditions ranging from mostly harmless to life-threatening. The common cold can produce a dry cough, especially if the condition is prolonged, although this condition may also produce a wet cough. Various other respiratory infections can cause cough, but it can also be caused by airway obstruction, ear infections, and other causes. A chronic dry cough can be produced by various chronic respiratory disorders such as asthma or COPD. See your doctor promptly for any cough symptoms.
