When to get a cough checked out

A cough is a common symptom of multiple conditions. Some conditions go away on their own, such as a common cold, while others, such as pneumonia, require medical attention and medication. How do you know when you should go see a doctor about your cough? That depends on multiple factors, including how long your cough has persisted and the symptoms that you have in addition to coughing – e.g. wheezing, shortness of breath, fever, coughing up blood.
