Substances that irritate your lungs may create additional inflammation and result in increased sputum production, making airway clearance more difficult. Be aware of irritants that you sense you may be allergic to, or that may cause airway irritation generally. Possible irritants include perfumes and colognes, cigarette smoke, pollens from trees, grasses and flowers, dust, air pollution (including smoke from large fires), and aerosol sprays.
