How do you stop your morning cough, if it doesn't go away? The persistent morning cough can be a frustrating symptom deal with.

The definition

What is morning cough? The morning cough is an explosive, lung and breathing-related maneuver, shortly after you get up in the morning, that deliberately and reflexively clears, or attempts to clear your airways. However, the morning cough is only a symptom.

Acute or chronic?

What is the likely cause of your morning cough? It depends if it's an acute morning cough, or a chronic morning cough. It's an acute morning cough, if your morning cough is less than three weeks old. And it's a chronic morning cough, if the morning cough is more than three weeks old.
