637 Possible Causes for Dry Cough, Increased Susceptibility to Infections

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    […] to infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Subjects with dry cough (n 14) had lower C5 values during infection than both baseline and recovery, and lower C2 values during infection than recovery; in these subjects,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] cough.[time-to-run.com]

  • Viral Upper Respiratory Tract Infection

    Consequently, external agents such as allergens and pollutants that damage airway epithelium could increase susceptibility to infection and/or lead to more-severe infections[intechopen.com] Other symptoms include sore throat, dry mouth, cough, posttussive emesis, hyposmia, and fatigability.[symptoma.com] cough, with lingering fatigue and malaise; elderly patients may also present with confusion and somnolence Physical exam Common cold–nasal voice, macerated skin over the[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Viral Lower Respiratory Infection

    Contrary to what people may think, other factors, such as becoming chilled, wet, or tired, do not cause colds or increase a child's susceptibility to infection.[merckmanuals.com] It starts suddenly, with a high temperature, a sore throat or a dry cough, as well as sore muscles and joints, and back pain or a headache.[montavit.com] We here show that some IFIH1 alleles increase susceptibility to viral respiratory infections, but the same LoF variants are known to be protective against type 1 diabetes[pnas.org]

  • Adenovirus Infection

    Increasingly potent immunosuppressive agents have reduced the incidence of rejection of transplanted organs while increasing patient susceptibility to opportunistic infections[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] cough Fever lasting 2 to 4 days Illness subsiding in 10 to 14 days DDx: rhinovirus, influenza, parainfluenza, RSV Viral pneumonia Sudden onset of high fever, rapid infection[unboundmedicine.com] Both TSA and MG-132 pretreatments could increase the CAR expression in the two cell lines, but the drug pretreatments could only make A549 cells more susceptible to adenovirus[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

    Conclusions Severe hypochlorhydria generated by PPI use leads to bacterial colonisation and increased susceptibility to enteric bacterial infection.[dx.doi.org] A persistent regurgitation of the acid into the throat and back of the mouth particularly at night may lead to a persistent dry cough.[news-medical.net] Your symptoms could include a dry cough, asthma symptoms, or trouble swallowing. Anyone, including infants and children , can have GERD.[medlineplus.gov]

  • Acute Respiratory Infection

    susceptibility.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Symptoms commonly include fever, shivering, chills, malaise, dry cough, loss of appetite, body aches, and nausea, typically in connection with a sudden onset of illness.[en.wikipedia.org] The most common symptoms of uncomplicated influenza are an abrupt onset of fever, shivering, headache, muscle ache and a dry cough.[web.archive.org]

  • Pneumonia

    susceptibility to infection have caused concern. 5 Of special interest is the possibility that acid-suppressive drugs could increase susceptibility to respiratory infections[dx.doi.org] She was admitted to clinic with a 2-week history of dyspnoea, dry cough and fever.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 53-year-old female presented with intermittent fever, chills, and dry cough since 10 days. Chest computed tomography scan showed multiple bilateral patchy infiltrates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Influenza

    Transmission rates, measured as the percentage of susceptible hosts infected, were found to increase at lower RH.[doi.org] The dry cough and fatigue of influenza can last two to three weeks. Signs that influenza is getting worse include fever, shaking chills, and shortness of breath.[my.clevelandclinic.org] Increased recognition of swine influenza infections may have been a matter of increased surveillance, number of susceptible humans, or swine virus transmissibility.[doi.org]

  • Allergic Asthma

    As most immunosuppressants act non‑selectively, a common treatment effect is immunodeficiency, which results in increased susceptibility to infections.[nice.org.uk] The symptoms of allergic asthma can include: Coughing (most likely a dry cough) Wheezing Shortness of breath/rapid breathing Chest tightness Increased production of mucous[briovarx.com] CONCLUSION: Individuals with TGF-β1 polymorphisms have an increased susceptibility to helminth infections and a lower risk of developing allergy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Asthma

    susceptibility to and morbidity from respiratory infection.[doi.org] Despite the patient presenting asthma characteristics (expiratory wheezing, dry cough, partial reversibility at post bronchodilator test) and asthma medication alleviating[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Regardless of age, asthma symptoms can include: • Dry cough, especially at night or in response to specific “triggers” • Tightness or pressure in the chest • Wheezing — a[asthmaandallergies.org]
