HealthDay News

(HealthDay News) -- Chronic cough occurs when you've been coughing steadily for eight weeks or longer. It's not always a sign of a serious health problem, but it can be annoying nonetheless.

To help calm your chronic cough, the Mayo Clinic suggests:

  • Avoiding exposure to allergens that are known to trigger your cough.
  • Quitting smoking, which is a common cause of chronic bronchitis.
  • Managing acid reflux, which can worsen cough. To help tame acid reflux, cut portion sizes, stay upright for several hours after eating, and sleep with the head of your bed elevated.
