Dry Cough Can Be Caused By Acid Reflux, Viruses Or Pollutants
In The Case Of Acid Reflux, It May Also Affect The Vocal Chords
Dry coughs can have a variety of causes. One of them is acid reflux, in which the acidic food from the stomach returns to the throat. The body reacts with a cough to get rid of the foreign matter. This can cause an inflammation of the vocal cords and is more frequent when the patient is lying down. Other causes are virus infections like a cold or flu, and also allergies which irritate the eyes, nose, and throat, resulting in a cough. Air pollution may contain chemicals which irritate the throat. Additional info click here.
