Why can't I stop coughing?

I have been coughing for over a week and its not because I'm sick. I have a small tickle in my throat and it won't go away. can someone tell me what's wrong!? I've tried medicine, I've went to the doctor, & I tried honey but absolutely nothing will work! and it's not mucus. my throat is really dry!

I did too! The tickle went away but you have to keep coughing to get the mucus out your chest or something like that.

Try drinking water...or maybe wait it out. Doctors would probably tell you to wait it out too.

I don't know but I have it, too and it really sucks! I'm coughing so badly that I end up gagging and I've just about lost my voice...but no other symptoms!

Put Vicks Vapo Rub on the bottoms of your feet and put on cotton socks. It will ease it so you can sleep.

I would like to ask if you have been running a lot recently? You can pick up a cough from running in this season. Unfortunately, that would also conclude that your out of shape. ;)

It would be wise to see a doctor if coughing persists...

Hope that helps

My son goes through this. It's allergies get you an over the counter bronchial inhibrolator(like primitein mist no longer can get as inhaler) tablets take as directed this helps him. Once enough gets in your system your coughing should stop. If it doesn't talk to your doctor. I get his at walgreens the exact is for Bronchial Asthma. You may say you don't have asthma but it is not only for that. His doctor told us.
