Symptoms of Chronic Cough

A chronic cough is often a dry and unproductive cough in response to a tickle in the back of the throat or chest. It can be associated with a number of symptoms, including:

  • Frequent throat clearing
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose
  • Postnasal drip
  • Hoarse voice
  • Sour taste in your mouth
  • Heartburn
  • Shortness of breath
  • Wheezing

See your physician if any of these symptoms lasts eight weeks or longer or if there is blood in your sputum.
