What is dry cough in children?
Children cough when the lining of the windpipe becomes irritated. This often happens when a child is sick or when the body is fighting off an illness and making lots of mucus or phlegm. A dry cough is often caused when the child is suffering from cold or influenza. This type of cough usually gets worse in a warm room or after the child has gone to bed, but a dry cough may also be an early sign of an infection of the lower respiratory tract, as with bronchitis.
