The body is sensitive to foreign substances, and waste products of digestion.
As a result, it devises means of quickly and quietly getting these invading/foreign substances out of the systems. This is the principle of the immune system. Mark, target and escort the new/invading things out of the body.
Coughing is both a respiratory system reflex and a symptom.
It is initiated by the cough centres in the brain in order to get rid of substances lodged in the lungs. These substances are always impeding the process of respiration, as a result, the body tries to take send them out.
While coughing, the muscles of the throat rapidly contracts and the object/substance is moved up gradually towards the mouth.
Repeated coughing gets the substance up to the mouth and they are eventually spitted out along with saliva. If it occurs as a symptom of a disease, it happens whether there is a material lodged in the lungs or not.
Causative agent(s) of cough has the ability to trigger the reflex as it incites its effects.
Catarrh is the name of the state whereby there is overproduction of mucous in the respiratory system.
Viruses, Bacteria and Fungi are the common culprits of the stimulation of the overproduction of mucous and cough. Mucous secretion is supposed to help lubricate and get rid of foreign substance and its over-secretion can become distressing
From public shame to discomforts and speech alteration and so on and forth.
