Type of Coughs


Coughs can be very confusing but what you might not know is they can be divided into two types: dry coughs, felt in the throat, and chesty coughs, felt in the lungs. It is not always easy to distinguish a dry cough from a chesty cough and it becomes even more difficult if your cough changes over time.

Dry cough

Dry coughs are caused by an irritation of the upper airways due to foreign particles, or a throat infection. This type of cough is non-productive – meaning no mucous or phlegm is produced. A dry cough is also known as a tickly, or irritating cough.

Chesty cough

Chesty coughs are characterised by the formation of mucous or phlegm in the lungs, and are classified as a productive cough. The cough reflex is triggered to help raise the phlegm, in order to clear the lungs. A chesty cough is also known as a mucous or phlegm cough.
