The coughing is a disease that has been experienced by everyone. Do you know what is actually called coughing? Coughing is a reflexology as an attempt by the body to expel a substance or foreign matter if there is an interference from the outside respiratory tract.

This reflex aims to keep mucus and irritants such as dust or smoke out of the lungs or respiratory tract. Surely you have experienced a cough with symptoms that are not the same. Broadly speaking there are two types of a cough, namely dry cough and wet cough. You can find the drugs for both types of the cough at the Canadian Pharmacy.

What is a dry cough? As the name implies a dry cough is a type of a cough that does not remove mucus or phlegm. This type of cough sufferer usually feels itchy in the throat so the frequency of coughing is more. This type of the cough can be caused by allergies, bacterial infections or side effects of using a drug. For example, the use of the drug Captopril hypertension will have a side effect in the form of a dry cough. Usually, the doctor who prescribes the drug or the pharmacist who submits the drug at the pharmacy will present these side effects.

Then what is meant by wet cough? This type of cough is a productive cough because it secretes mucus or phlegm. Surely all of you have experienced both types of cough. Regardless of the type, we feel that coughing is very disturbing to our daily activities and comfort, so we need immediate treatment.
