Many respiratory infections start out as a dry cough, and then become a wet cough or productive cough as the lungs start to produce more sputum. Some types of chronic cough or severe cough may remain a dry cough, or become a persistent dry cough.
If it persists for a longer time, it may cause some severe throat and lung problems. Your child may need a medical consultation.
