Runny nose, persistent cough, high fever or achy all over? Sound familiar? The common cold can be caused by hundreds of different viruses. If you have had a viral cold, pneumonia, or bronchitis, it is
usual to have a cough. Coughing is the body’s natural way to protect its lungs and throat. A productive cough will help clear mucus and phlegm from the lungs and throat. While productive coughs can be beneficial, nonproductive coughs can be very irritating and annoying. Airways can quickly become extra sensitive and coughing can become painful.
