Dry barking cough

Causes of dry barking cough
Most often, the causes of dry barking cough are ARD with inflammation of the mucous membrane of the upper respiratory tract. Also, in some cases, it may occur as a result of an allergic reaction.
When in addition to coughing, the patient has a fever, a runny nose has started, and the throat also hurts - probably the cause of the viral disease. And if all of the above manifestations are absent and the general well-being of a person is good with signs of skin rash and itching - barking cough, most likely, arose because of allergies.
There are several diseases that are the cause of the appearance of dry barking cough. Among them are:
- Acute pharyngitis and laryngitis, as well as laryngotracheitis;
- Paracottus, and also whooping cough;
- Viral croup resulting from complication of ARI;
- Benign or malignant tumors of the larynx;
- Allergic laryngitis;
- The foreign object entering the respiratory tract.
Symptoms of dry barking cough
The main, first, sign on which the cough is referred to dry barking is its sound - as it is clear from the name itself, it is somewhat like barking.
Such a sound is explained by the fact that the larynx is swelling at this time, which also changes the sound of the patient's voice - in it there is a hoarseness. It is not possible to cough up phlegm, because of what the patient feels exhausted and depressed, feels weak and starts to refuse everything. Among other symptoms of dry barking cough:
- The state of general weakness and fatigue.
- Difficulty with breathing.
- Sore throat and head.
- Lymph nodes increase.
- Nausea with vomiting.
- Hoarse voice.
- Inflammation of the larynx and swelling.
Dry barking cough in the child
Usually from a dry barking cough suffer children under the age of 5, because the larynx is much narrower than in older children. Due to a viral infection, there is a strong edema of the mucous membrane - swelling almost completely closes the laryngeal lumen, because of which the air can not penetrate into the lungs, which leads to the development of seizures suffocation.
Attacks of dry barking cough in children often begin unexpectedly, in a dream. Usually they do not have any precursors, often their appearance becomes the first sign that the baby is ill with laryngitis.
Dry barking cough in an adult
Dry barking cough in adults usually indicates the development of laryngotracheitis or acute laryngitis. With laryngotracheitis, inflammation of the larynx usually occurs, further spreading to the trachea - because of this during the inhalation of the trachea narrows, provoking the appearance of dry barking cough. At the same time, the temperature usually remains within the normal range.
Barking dry cough without fever

- Absence of a common cold;
- Cough appears or becomes stronger if the person is next to the allergen;
- Cough may periodically disappear / resume, or be seasonal - it depends on the cause of the allergy.

Less often, it is the first manifestation of the virus or cold that the swelling of the larynx and barking cough can serve.
