When a Cough is a Warning Signal

Coughing is a symptom. The body uses it to clear the respiratory system, expunging bacterial or viral pathogens or dirt particles. Usually it's the result of a common cold, but anyone suffering from a persistent cough that last longer than two weeks needs to consult a physician and check for pneumonia.
