What is Cough?
Cough is a protective reflex which clears the airways of antifriction, phlegm, dust, smoke or a foreign body. Whenever there is an obstruction in the throat, the brain thinks it to be a foreign object and tries to relieve it by coughing. Continuous coughing for more than two weeks needs medical attention.
