Tickly dry cough

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi , I'm a BX patient, i pretty much always have a cough as such , periodically though, i get a very dry tickly cough , which bizarrely doesn't start until later in the day .

Has anyone else had this ? If so , did you find the reasoning ?

    I am new to this forum so I need to ask. Is BX short for bronchiectasis?

    A dry cough? Are you staying hydrated? Not being hydrated can cause both a cough and more mucus. Thick mucus. Have you tired avoiding caffeine? Too much caffeine can also cause dehydration in some people, even if they think they are drinking enough. One last thought: Is your home or apartment humidified?

    Does nebulizing help? Saline nasal spays or rinses help some, but not others.

    Everyone is different, so what works for some might not work for others.
