A cough is a common reflex action that clears the throat of mucus or foreign irritants. Coughing to clear the throat is typically an infrequent action, although a number of conditions can cause more frequent bouts of coughing.

Most cough episodes will clear up or significantly improve within two weeks. A cough that lasts between 3 and 8 weeks is a subacute cough. A persistent cough that lasts more than eight weeks is a chronic cough.

The most common cause of a cough is a respiratory tract infection, such as a cold or flu. For young children, a common cause of cough is asthma. For smokers, there can be chronic cough with a distinctive sound.
