Recovery & Support for Chronic Cough

Doctors at NYU Langone offer advice about how to prevent infections, control allergy triggers, and address other factors that can lead to or worsen a child’s cough, such as family members who smoke around the child.

The Sala Institute for Child and Family Centered Care helps support families and children with chronic cough related to asthmacystic fibrosis, and other chronic conditions. This ensures that your family has access to the many resources that can support you and your child throughout treatment.

Preventing Infections

Doctors at NYU Langone strongly recommend keeping your child’s vaccination schedule up to date. Vaccines against viral and bacterial infectious diseases, including influenza and pneumonia, are an important way to maintain health and prevent complications from infections. Our doctors also recommend frequent hand washing to prevent infections.

Controlling Allergies

Allergies can cause postnasal drip, which can contribute to coughing in children. Doctors at NYU Langone recommend using allergy medications and avoiding known allergy triggers, such as pollen or animal dander. Our doctors can make referrals to allergy specialists at NYU Langone who can identify your child’s allergy triggers.

Smoking Cessation

Second-hand smoke is a leading cause of asthma and other breathing problems in children. The Tobacco Cessation Programs at NYU Langone can help parents and other family members to quit smoking for good.
