Why do we develop coughs?

A cough usually begins with a tickle in your throat and this happens when a virus, bacteria, dust, pollen, or any other substance irritates your nerve endings that are located in the airways between the throat and lungs. When you start coughing, this is a way of your body trying to clear the passages. This is why it’s important to relieve a cough as soon as possible. The longer something stays in the way of your airways, the more prone you are to developing a serious illness.
