Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Coughing. View of a man coughing into his clenched hand. Coughing is a reflex action to try to clear the airways of mucus, sputum (phlegm), a foreign body, or other irritants and blockages. Coughs are most commonly caused by inflammation of the upper respiratory tract due to viral infection or irritation by dust or smoke. Bronchitis, the inflammation of air passages into the lungs, produces thick mucus and causes severe coughing. This may be caused by infection but is more often the result of smoking. Treatment for coughs depends upon the underlying disorder.
