Tracheitis defines an inflammation of the trachea, the tube through which air passes located between the larynx and bronchi. This condition is most often caused by an irritation in this part of the airways, secondary to a persistent cough, which gives the impression of being a cough qualified as tickly. This persistent cough is often due to infection, caused by a viral or bacterial contamination, in which case it is commonly associated with inflammation of the neighboring areas, such as bronchitis
, or laryngitis
. The principal symptom
of tracheitis is a couch, usually dry, meaning that there is no sputum produced. This cough is generally painful.
