Does heat cause cough?
Regarding this, can being too hot cause coughing?
Absolutely. Extreme temperature changes (either from hot to cold or the other way around) or barometric changes can make anyone cough. A fast drop to colder weather can aggravate an existing respiratory infection.
Likewise, is warm air good for a cough? Adjust your room's temperature and humidity. Keep your room warm but not overheated. If the air is dry, a cool-mist humidifier or vaporizer can moisten the air and help ease congestion and coughing.
Correspondingly, can hot weather cause dry cough?
