Question chronic cough

hey, I always have to cough all the time (and it's loud too). It also always feels like I have to clear my throat but I can't always clear it that well. and I always have to cough because I have a tickle in my throat. why is this happening for such a long time?

Post nasal drip and allergies can also cause these types of symptoms.

I would see an allergist.

I agree with Kim. Make an appointment with an allergist and get checked out. Could be allergies or even asthma.

Take care!

when i do any excerise i do feel out of breath an sometimes i just feel like i cant breath that well for no reason. I was thinking of getting checked. Also, going up stairs I feel out of breth. But I had physical not too long ago and the doctor listens to your breathing so wouldn't they have been able to tell if there was a problem with my breathing?

i don't smoke though either

Two of the biggest offenders (in the allergy or intolerance department) are dairy products and wheat. I minimize the consumption of both (for other reasons) and as a bonus my constant cough (turning into a persistent hacking cough several times during the winter) disappeared!
