Coughing is the body’s way of clearing unwanted matter from the lungs and lower airways. It may also be triggered by inflammation in the respiratory tract (among other causes).
Coughs that cause mucus (also known as phlegm, sputum or expectoration) to be expelled or expectorated from the airways are sometimes referred to as wet, loose or productive. This type of cough may be worse at night, because when the child lies down, mucus drips from the upper respiratory tract (e.g. nose and sinuses) into the lower airways, triggering the cough reflex as the body tries to expel it1.
On the other hand, coughs that don’t trigger the expectoration of mucus are referred to as dry or non-productive. These types of coughs sometimes persist for long periods of time, and may be associated with inflammation of the respiratory mucous membranes. They are also sometimes characterised by spasmodic bouts of coughing.
Coughing and bronchial mucous congestion are common symptoms in children. For example, when kids catch a mild upper respiratory tract infection like a common cold, coughing may persist for a fortnight or even longer2, and more than half experience moderate-to-severe chest congestion within the first 48 hours of the cold’s onset3.
