What is a diagnosis for a dry cough that won't go away?
Hello, can anyone suggest some diagnosis for a dry cough? I am 40 years old female. I have been suffering from dry cough for the last month. I am very tired. Can anyone tell me what is a diagnosis for a dry cough that won't go away?
@lana Hello, my advice is if you have been experiencing any type of chronic cough, it is worth having a check-up with a doctor to make sure that you aren’t asthmatic. The asthmatic cough is usually accompanied by a wheezing sound, due to the effect that the condition has on the airways. Inflammation causes them to tighten and narrow, meaning that there is less space for the air to travel through. Whilst a dry, wheezy cough is one sign of this condition, it can become more serious, leading to difficulty breathing. For a dry cough that isn’t going away, it is important to make an appointment with a GP. They can help you to find out the cause, and get you proper treatment. Early treatment is always preferable. A chronic dry cough can be caused by some serious and even fatal conditions, such as heart failure, lung cancer, and pulmonary embolism. Thank You.
