Why do I cough so much and how can I stop it?

Besides water and cough drops. I cough too much at school and I feel like it really disturbs my class and we're about to do a play and I keep on coughing and I don't want to while I'm at my part or even someone else's part. Please help!!!

It could be an allergy, try using nasonex every nightbefore bed. Nyquil works, and you may have symptoms of bronchitus. When you shower, make sure it is not cold but definately not burning hot. Heat and coldness causes it to be worse so you should shower/bathe in warm water. Try gurgling salt water every day, help a lot!

You have to find out what is the main reason or the thing causing you to cough. So you can take the right medicine. That is the way to stop it. It can be an allergy. Better see a doctor that will prescribe you the right medicine.

There's a cold going around right now! I've been coughing too. I've been on cold pills and they seem to help! Also try a humidifier in your room.

dust molecules could be going into your mouth or your throat is clogged. You should dust surfaces and use an inhaler if its hard for you to breathe.

Of you are still coughing after taking Dayquil or Nyquil, get checked for asthma. I suffered for almost 15 years with horrible coughs every time I had a cold & several bouts of bronchitis before finally being diagnosed with virally induced asthma 6 years ago. My life has been soooo much better since then.
