What is a chesty cough?

A chesty cough is what we call a cough that happens when your body produces mucus, or phlegm, in order to help to clear unwanted particles, such as dust or bacteria, your airways. Your body wants to move the excess phlegm away from your chest, which is what causes a chesty cough.
