Types of cough: dry, wet ...

Immediately you need to determine what kind of cough torments the baby, why the attack begins? Coughing does not happen without a reason. In the body, dust, allergens, mucus accumulates in a day. They irritate the receptors of the respiratory tract, causing a sharp and strong air flow, which is designed to automatically (reflex) release the larynx, trachea, bronchi and lungs from any kind of irritants and foreign substances.

Dry cough is a symptom of any disease. Its humidity depends on the pathogen that has entered the body. Dry cough indicates the development of the following diseases:

  1. ORVI,
  2. inflammation of the vocal cords,
  3. pleurisy,
  4. diphtheria
  5. whooping cough: the child cannot clear his throat due to too viscous sputum, and a dry cough is accompanied by attacks of suffocation.

One of the causes of dry cough is a violation of the digestive tract. Acid, which is in the stomach, with belching enters the oral cavity and irritates the throat. Especially often the attack happens when the baby is sleeping.

Wet cough. The causative agents of wet cough are infections and viruses. It is accompanied by sputum production in the following diseases:

With diseases of the nose and copious mucus, a wet cough appears. In a dream, mucus from the nose flows down the back of the throat. It accumulates in the bronchi. In a dream, it is difficult for a child to breathe, which leads to an attack.

Barking dry cough appears in the baby during the initial stages of the disease. This symptom shows that stenosis develops. There is a narrowing of the larynx. Air can not pass into the lungs. Barking cough is often accompanied by choking.

Stenosis occurs with edema of the respiratory tract, acute laryngitis, tracheitis, bronchitis, inflammation of the adenoids. Cough is sharp, whistling sounds. Occurs in a child in a dream in the form of a strong attack.

Convulsive cough frequent, dry: accompanied by jolts and deep breaths. Baby is difficult to breathe. Because of the strain, his abdominal muscles hurt. Convulsive cough most often indicates whooping cough, if the child is not vaccinated from this disease. Cough often provokes vomiting, redness of the whites of the eyes.

Allergen could get into the body during the day, and coughing fits occur at night. Allergic cough is always dry, may be accompanied by spasms of the bronchi and become barking.

Allergic cough can be triggered by food, household dust, odors, wool products. Baby's body temperature is normal. Liquid mucus is secreted from the nose, tears are flowing.

Vocal tick - A kind of cough. Cough is a symptom of a neurological disease. He appears in the child in connection with the experiences. The baby begins to cough, if he is excited, is under stress. Vocal tick is an easy cough.

At night, a tick appears if the child is to perform at a matinee in kindergarten, before the test work at the school. The kid will cough at night if he played with the children during the day and became a loser. This symptom is an indication of a nervous system disorder.

Causes of coughing and its types

Cough, including paroxysmal, due to the following reasons:

Bacterial or viral infection can cause coughing.

There are the following types of cough:

It is characteristic of viral infections, allergic reactions, diseases of the pleura or lower parts of the respiratory system, whooping cough and paracoclusum. Inhalation of a foreign body is also often accompanied by a dry cough.
  2. Wet (or wet, productive), accompanied by sputum separation. It is associated with bacterial infections of the respiratory tract. At the same time, the sputum at the initial stage of treatment is coughed up.

The task of the doctor with a dry cough that accompanies bacterial infections, is the transfer of unproductive cough into a wet one. This is to facilitate the removal of sputum from the bronchi.

Wet cough accompanied by bacterial infections of the respiratory tract

Note! Bronchial asthma may be accompanied by paroxysmal, unproductive cough, combined with shortness of breath and weakness, especially at night. At the end of the attack, a viscous sputum of vitreous nature is secreted.

Night coughing attacks are most often caused by swelling of the mucous membrane of the larynx and lower parts of the respiratory tract, as well as by the accumulation of mucus in them. This occurs under the following conditions:

  • bronchitis,
  • laryngitis,
  • tracheitis,
  • pneumonia,
  • cystic fibrosis,

  • inflammatory processes in the airways (bronchitis, tonsillitis, sinusitis, laryngitis, rhinitis, etc.),
  • adenoids,
  • foreign object caught in the throat
  • allergic diseases of the respiratory system, bronchial asthma,
  • diseases of the digestive system (often gastroesophageal reflux),
  • heart disease,
  • helminthic invasions,
  • too dry air in the room.

Understand what is the cause of cough, can only be a doctor after a survey.

Types of cough and its treatment

It is customary to divide the cough into dry and wet. In the first days of inflammation of the respiratory organs, there is mainly a dry cough, then turning into a wet cough. But the varieties of both dry and wet cough a lot. Depending on the reasons for its occurrence, it is:

  1. Acute. Its duration is usually less than three weeks. It is usually caused by a viral disease, inflammation in the larynx (laryngitis), trachea, bronchi or lungs. At first, it is dry and intrusive. When tracheitis becomes barking, with laryngitis also with a sore throat. When pneumonia - immediately moist and deep. The main task in the event of any signs of ARI is the elimination of pneumonia.
  2. Sudden. Suddenly a cough that appears (sometimes accompanied by a whistle) may indicate the presence of a foreign object in the airways.
  3. Protracted. Wet cough, most often after acute bronchitis. It also happens with adenoids, nasopharyngitis. It can last from a month and longer. Dry prolonged cough occurs in schoolchildren with tracheitis. It happens with whooping cough. Has paroxysmal character, painful.
  4. Persistent or chronic. Observed in chronic diseases of the respiratory system. It happens wet and dry depending on the disease.
  5. Allergic. Dry, paroxysmal and painful. It occurs most often suddenly as a sign of an allergic reaction. Sometimes it is a precursor of bronchial asthma. To distinguish it from a cold cough is quite difficult. Find and eliminate the cause of the allergy.
  6. Psychogenic. Mostly dry. It occurs as a reaction to stressful situations. It is of a permanent nature, usually begins with a cold, then it becomes regular. It manifests itself only during the day, does not occur during sleep, it is possible to provoke its attack by touching on the topic unpleasant for the child. Requires in-depth research and specific treatment.

Treatment of cough due to the diagnosis. Basically it is the appointment of drugs that dilute sputum. To establish the diagnosis, the following studies may be assigned:

  • chest x-ray,
  • bronchoscopy (indicated for frequent pneumonia, bronchitis, for the detection of a foreign object),
  • sputum analysis
  • blood tests, feces and others.

  1. Follow the drinking regime. When coughing recommended plenty of warm drink - fruit drinks, herbal teas, compotes, water.
  2. Maintain optimum humidity in the room. This is especially true in winter when the air in the rooms is dry.
  3. Do therapeutic inhalation. Good purchase nebulizer. This device sprays medicine, allowing it to immediately enter the bronchi. Without consulting a pediatrician, do nothing.
  4. Use drugs prescribed by the doctor. These are usually expectorant drugs that remove phlegm, mucus and bacteria. They are of the following types: diluting sputum, stimulating its discharge and combined (and liquefy and stimulate).

In the treatment of cough in a child antitussive agents are not recommended, especially since you cannot give them yourself. They act on the cough center, which is located in the cerebral cortex. This leads to stagnation of mucus, which greatly aggravates the course of the disease. But many make the mistake of giving the child with a wet cough such a drug. It can only be prescribed by a doctor, for example, with pertussis, or when preparing for surgical intervention on the respiratory organs.

Night cough in children

Basically the illness is aggravated at night. Its attacks amplify, disturbing a dream of the child. This happens because in the prone position, the mucus does not dissolve and clogs the nasopharynx, which causes a cough.

It is harder to cough up at night, so it is intense and long lasting. The child becomes restless, does not sleep well, or cannot sleep at all. To reduce the number of coughing episodes in babies, you need to turn them from one side to the other during sleep.

Cooler and drier than during the daytime, the air at night can also trigger seizures. Therefore, it is important to maintain optimum humidity and temperature in the nursery. Air it before bedtime. It is recommended to include a humidifier or hang wet towels around the room.

Most often, night cough bothers children with viral infections, chronic diseases of the respiratory system, bronchial asthma, adenoids, after suffering whooping cough (the disease itself is also characterized by nighttime coughing).

How can I calm the child's cough

Attacks of acute cough are observed with laryngitis. Children have a larynx structure different from adults. It is located above them, the ligaments are thinner and shorter, the lumen is narrower. Therefore, edema during inflammation occurs more quickly and is dangerous because it makes breathing very difficult. If it became very difficult for the child to breathe - you need to call an ambulance. Because of these features, cough in children is much more frequent and longer.

How to remove a coughing fit in a child? There are several ways to stop coughing, this will help the following tools:

  • drink,
  • honey,
  • Children's cough syrup
  • butter,
  • inhalation.

How to calm the child’s cough and stop the attack:

  1. When coughing at night. It is necessary to wake up the child, sit on the bed and give him to drink warm milk or mineral water, chamomile decoction, tea with jam. After that, the cough weakens, the sore throat goes away.
  2. You can give a little honey (if not allergic) or butter. Honey or butter must be slowly absorbed. This will soften the sore throat. Buckwheat honey gives a very good effect.
  3. Sometimes children's syrups and cough syrups work well. They contain essential oils and other ingredients that help relieve cough.
  4. In some cases, effective inhalation. You need to give your child a breath over hot water or use a special inhaler or nebulizer. But keep in mind that newborns up to six months of inhalation are contraindicated. Air humidification is required. Dry air is a frequent cause of irritation in the throat, which is why one constantly wants to cough.
  5. You can steam your baby's feet or warm it in the bathroom, rub the chest. But only if there is no temperature.

"Doctor, we do not know what to do with cough - we treat, we treat, but he does not pass." "Ambulance? Can the doctor go to the house? The child is coughing hard, cannot sleep." The pediatrician hears such complaints almost more often than all the others. What is a cough, how to deal with it and whether?
First of all, cough is a protective reaction of the body. With the help of it, it pushes out from the respiratory tract what the body does not need at all - from a relatively large foreign body to fine dust and microorganisms. The airways are lined with a special ciliated epithelium, which with the help of mucus drives everything that is foreign to the outside, away from the lungs and other parts of the respiratory tract - the nose, larynx, trachea and bronchi.
Cough - paroxysmal contraction of muscles - helps to complete this process. There would be no cough - any banal inflammation of the upper respiratory tract would turn into pneumonia. So, cough is necessary. But which one? Of course the one that is accompanied by sputum. Doctors call it productive, all others - wet.
Other types of cough - dry, barking, annoying, paroxysmal, which happens with whooping cough - are not useful, they tire the patient, prevent him from sleeping, can lead to vomiting, are accompanied by muscle pain and ultimately increase respiratory failure.
Here is how much unpleasant can happen from this, in general, necessary and harmless symptom. To cough depending on its nature and need to be approached in different ways. All cough remedies can be divided into three main groups: the so-called mucolytics - means that dilute sputum, expectorant - reinforcing cough and soothing (* antitussive) - reducing the activity of the cough center. In addition, some drugs have a combined effect - and mucolytic and expectorant.
In the treatment of cough, not only chemical drugs are used, but also a significant amount of a wide variety of herbs and homeopathic remedies. In addition, numerous physical procedures are used to combat its different varieties - from physiotherapy procedures to various distracting means (banks, mustard plasters, grinding) and, finally, chest massage, which is of particular importance in young children who are not good at coughing. , or in patients with drug allergies.

With this pediatric infection, the cough occurs because the whooping cough irritates the cough center directly. It multiplies in the nervous system. A person with whooping cough can cough up everything from loud sound, bright light, anxiety.
Whooping cough cough is very characteristic - it starts with a loud whistling breath, lasts a few minutes each minute, the child just coughs. At the same time, he often sticks out his tongue so that his bridle tears appear. When pertussis cough from a terrible strain can bleed into the sclera of the eyes and the skin of the chest. У маленьких детей приступы коклюшного кашля (репризы) могут сопровождаться остановкой дыхания.
Оставляя в стороне профилактику и лечение коклюша, скажу только, что здесь абсолютно бесполезны препараты, разжижающие мокроту и усиливающие ее выделение (муколитики и отхаркивающие) . Здесь уместны только препараты, успокаивающие нервную систему и снимающие кашель, *например, синекод, туссамаг. By the way, such a "whooping cough" nature of cough persists in patients for some time after being cured of this infection (up to 1 year) and with all the banal colds.

"Doctor, we do not know what to do with cough - we treat, we treat, but he does not pass." "Ambulance? Can the doctor go to the house? The child is coughing hard, cannot sleep." The pediatrician hears such complaints almost more often than all the others. What is a cough, how to deal with it and whether?
First of all, cough is a protective reaction of the body. With the help of it, it pushes out from the respiratory tract what the body does not need at all - from a relatively large foreign body to fine dust and microorganisms. The airways are lined with a special ciliated epithelium, which with the help of mucus drives everything that is foreign to the outside, away from the lungs and other parts of the respiratory tract - the nose, larynx, trachea and bronchi.
Cough - paroxysmal contraction of muscles - helps to complete this process. There would be no cough - any banal inflammation of the upper respiratory tract would turn into pneumonia. So, cough is necessary. But which one? Of course the one that is accompanied by sputum. Doctors call it productive, all others - wet.
Other types of cough - dry, barking, annoying, paroxysmal, which happens with whooping cough - are not useful, they tire the patient, prevent him from sleeping, can lead to vomiting, are accompanied by muscle pain and ultimately increase respiratory failure.
Here is how much unpleasant can happen from this, in general, necessary and harmless symptom. To cough depending on its nature and need to be approached in different ways. All cough remedies can be divided into three main groups: the so-called mucolytics - means that dilute sputum, expectorant - reinforcing cough and soothing (* antitussive) - reducing the activity of the cough center. In addition, some drugs have a combined effect - and mucolytic and expectorant.
In the treatment of cough, not only chemical drugs are used, but also a significant amount of a wide variety of herbs and homeopathic remedies. In addition, numerous physical procedures are used to combat its different varieties - from physiotherapy procedures to various distracting means (banks, mustard plasters, grinding) and, finally, chest massage, which is of particular importance in young children who are not good at coughing. , or in patients with drug allergies.
There is a certain sequence (algorithm) in the application of cough suppressants. The task is always the same - to ensure that the dry cough becomes wet and the child coughs up sputum well. Consider a specific situation.

In young children, attacks of pertussis cough (reprise) may be accompanied by respiratory arrest.
Leaving aside the prevention and treatment of whooping cough, I can only say that there are absolutely useless drugs that dilute sputum and enhance its secretion (mucolytics and expectorant). Only drugs that soothe the nervous system and relieve coughing, * for example, synekod, tussamag, are relevant here. By the way, such a "whooping cough" nature of cough persists in patients for some time after being cured of this infection (up to 1 year) and with all the banal colds.

These measures should be taken only with accurate confidence in the diagnosis and the availability of necessary medical skills.

How to stop a cough in a child at night: ways to solve the problem
