If you suffer from a persistent cough, the thought may have crossed your mind that it could be due to asthma. As this video from The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology explains, coughing in people who have asthma is usually brought on by a trigger such as pollen. If you find yourself coughing and wheezing frequently even when you do not have a cold, you should see an allergist to determine whether you have asthma.
