Understanding Acute Cough

An acute cough is a cough that lasts for a short duration, typically less than three weeks. It can be caused by various factors, including infections, allergies, irritants, and underlying health conditions. Here’s what you need to know:

Common Causes of Acute Cough:

  • Viral Infections: The common cold and flu often lead to acute coughs.
  • Allergies: Allergic reactions to pollen, dust, or pet dander can trigger coughing.
  • Irritants: Exposure to smoke, pollutants, or chemicals can irritate the throat and lead to coughing.

Effective Home Remedies for Acute Cough

When faced with an acute cough, there are several home remedies that may provide relief while waiting for medical evaluation. Here are some options:

  1. Hydration: Drinking plenty of fluids helps keep the throat moist and can soothe irritation.
  2. Honey: A teaspoon of honey, either alone or added to warm tea, can help ease throat irritation.
  3. Humidification: Using a humidifier in your room can add moisture to the air and alleviate coughing.
  4. Cough Drops: Over-the-counter cough drops or lozenges can provide temporary relief.
