Chronic cough can have multiple causes, many of which are more bothersome than worrisome. Some lung conditions, asthma in particular, can cause chronic cough and would be best evaluated by your family physician. There are, however, a number of causes of chronic cough and throat irritation that Indigo ENT physician can help you with. Acid reflux can occasionally reach the throat and cause it to be irritated as can secretions dripping down your throat from the back of your nose. The chronic cough caused by these common issues can be associated with intermittent voice hoarseness, throat clearing and feeling like there is something stuck in your throat (globus). Our physicians will be happy to examine you and offer the best treatment for your symptoms depending on their cause.
