What is a dry, tickly cough?
A dry or tickly cough is a cough that doesn’t have any mucus in it. Irritation in your airways creates the tickly feeling that makes you want to cough, and this will usually pass within a couple of weeks. Some of the most common causes of coughs include:
Upper respiratory tract infections, e.g. cold and flu, laryngitis, sinusitis, whooping cough
Lower respiratory tract infections, e.g. bronchitis, pneumonia
Allergies or hay fever
Long term conditions, e.g. asthma, chronic bronchitis
Inhaling dust or smoke
