we don't know why some people have sarcoidosis.

Sarcoidosis is also called sarcoid and is a disease involving abnormal collections of inflammatory cells that form lumps known as granulomas which is a form of excessive scar tissue.

some believe it may be due to an immune reaction to a trigger such as an infection or chemicals in those who are genetically predisposed

sarcoidosis needs a biopsy in your lungs to confirm the biopsy.

severe cough in itself is not a sign of sarcoidosis.

have you seen a pulmonologist to have lung testing like a chest CT scan and a pulmonary function test to see why you are coughing?
