Can Allergies or Asthma Cause Coughing?

Yes, allergies and asthma can both cause coughing. Allergic reactions can lead to an itchy or irritated throat, triggering coughing.

Indeed, allergies and asthma cause cough. Allergens, including mold, dust mites, pollen, and pet dander, can cause inflammation in your airways by triggering your body to release histamines and other substances and coughing may result from this inflammation. On the other hand, coughing is a typical symptom of asthma, especially in youngsters. It narrows and inflames the airways, making breathing difficult and causing wheezing, chest tightness, and coughing.

Hi JanVi,

Thank you for highlighting the link between allergies, asthma and coughing. Allergens like mold, dust mites, pollen, and pet dander can trigger airway inflammation, leading to coughing. This is especially common in asthma, particularly among children, where narrowed airways cause coughing. Recognizing these links is vital for managing symptoms and improving respiratory health. Let’s raise awareness and support each other in addressing allergies and asthma effectively.
