Well, this condition, in which a person is unable to pass stools with ease, is known as constipation and it is quite a common ailment.

Constipation is usually more common in people who do not follow a healthy diet and exercise regime. In a few other cases, constipation can also be caused due to side effects of certain medications like antibiotics, hormonal imbalance, etc.

When a person eats food which is high in starch content and low in fibre content, it can cause the stools to harden in the intestines, causing constipation.

Now, coming to dry cough, which is yet another common respiratory ailment, it can also cause a lot of difficulty to the person affected by the condition.

There can be a number of causes for the development of dry cough in a person.

Seasonal allergy, dust allergy, pet allergy, etc. can be one of the main reasons for dry cough, as these allergens irritate the thoracic cavity.

In addition, dry cough can also be a symptom of viral flu, respiratory ailments like bronchitis, excessive smoking, tuberculosis, etc.
