Different types of cough
There are generally about four different types of coughs that you should be aware of: Dry cough, whooping cough, croup cough and wet cough. All of these coughs have a different sound and by listening to what your cough sounds like, you will be in a better position to know what to do about it.
  • Dry cough doesn’t produce any phlegm and is usually caused by environmental irritants, like dust or smoke, but can also be a symptom of more serious health-related issues like asthma, influenza or pneumonia.
  • Whooping cough symptoms include a sharp gasp for breath after a long bout of coughing. Whooping cough is contagious and puts infants at risk. It is a cough that can be prevented through a vaccine.
  • Croup cough is that loud, ugly, barking type of cough. This kind of cough is actually a viral infection. It will often affect kids and can get worse as the night goes on.
  • Wet cough is what clears the gross stuff out of your throat and nose. Usually this cough is the result of a run-of-the-mill type cold, but sometimes it can mean something more serious like bronchitis or pneumonia.
