A cough is defined as a defense mechanism that our body uses to neutralize and eliminate an irritant substance present in the airways. The causes of cough can be multiple, such as bacterial or viral infections (pneumonia, laryngitis, bronchitis, allergies), irritants (smoke, dust, steam), climatic variations or the presence of foreign bodies in the airways (for example a bread crumb gone crosswise). Cough can be classified according to its duration in time (acute, subacute and chronic) and based on the production of mucus (dry or productive). In the treatment of cough are used drugs or herbal preparations with bechic activity, expectorant, pectoral and mucolytic, etc.
