Due to the different types of cough, it is important to choose the right remedy to treat your individual cough the best way possible What causes a chesty cough? Chesty or wet cough can be the result of an infection of the upper respiratory airways associated with common cold viruses. This infection causes the mucus membranes of the airways to become inflamed and to produce thick, sticky mucus. We usually experience this as excessive mucus in the lungs and airways, which cannot be removed by normal mucociliary clearance. Then, coughing is part of the self-healing process of the body to get this mucus out. This can be supported with medication.
