When do you need to worry about having cough?

A cough is your body’s way of responding when something irritates your throat or airways. An irritant stimulates nerves that send a message to your brain. The brain then tells muscles in your chest and abdomen to push air out of your lungs to force out the irritant. Can you imagine that one sneeze generates a wind of 166 km/hr (100 mi/hr), and a cough moves out at100 km/hr (60 mi/hr). An occasional cough is normal and healthy. But, a cough that persists for several weeks or one that brings up discolored or bloody mucus may indicate a condition that needs medical attention. Especially, if cough does not go away or gets worse and occur with weight loss.
