A cough in a dream can be a symbol of illness, but can also be a symbol of receiving money and making balance in your life.

Dreams about coughing are very common and they are related to the state you are currently in.

Trying to hold a cough in a dream means that you are restrained and that you might be embarrassed in the future.

Seeing other people cough means that you might witness something that should be kept as a secret.

Also, this dream can mean that you will escape some situation without any consequences and you will be lucky because of that.

Let’s see what are the most common dreams about coughing and their meanings.

Dreaming of coughing

If you were coughing in a dream, or have coughed only once, it means that you will be forced to say something that is not true about someone.

Maybe you will be asked to tell your opinion on someone you work with or about your friend and you will have to lie.

You will do so because you will try to protect that person and make them look good in front of others. They will appreciate that but you should be careful because you never know what a lie can do.

Dreaming of someone else coughing

Seeing someone else coughing in a dream is a symbol of caring about other people. But, it also has a meaning of being sick.

Maybe someone you know will soon have some health issues and you will offer your help to them.

This dream is a sign that you will be needed and your help will mean a lot to someone.


Another meaning of this dream can be that someone who is close to you will talk bad things about you. They don’t want to admit that they don’t like you.

You should be aware that not everyone is your friend and that many people lie.

Someone is talking about you behind your back while pretending to be your true friend.

Dreaming of repeated coughing

Repeatedly coughing in a dream is a sign of receiving a lot of money. Maybe you will win a lottery, who knows. This dream indicates that you will be financially stable and you will make everyone around you surprised.

This dream shows that you will do something unexpectedly and you will succeed in that. Everyone around you will at first think that you are silly for trying to achieve that, but when you succeed they will realize that you were right.

This dream tells you to follow your heart and don’t listen to other people’s advice if you know that you are right.

Dreaming of others coughing repeatedly

If you saw other people cough many times, it means that you will be treated differently from others. Maybe your boss will decide that you need special treatment because you don’t do your job properly.

You will be in a situation where everyone around you is awarded for their work, except you. You will wonder why is that happening but the answer won’t come easily.

The answer lies within you and you should know what you deserve and what to change in order to deserve something better.

Dreaming of trying to cough

If you had a dream about trying to cough, but you couldn’t do it, it means that you will be forced to do something you don’t approve of.

Another meaning of this dream is that you will try hard to do something and make your dream come true, but it won’t work because some things will stop you on your way to success.

You should always try to predict the possible obstacles on your way to the top and keep in mind that there is no easy way out. You must know when to stop and think and organize yourself better.

Dreaming of trying to hold a cough

If you had a dream about trying to hold your cough, it means that there is something you want to say to someone but you can’t because it’s a secret.

You know something others don’t but you won’t admit it because you are saving someone’s back.

Be careful with who you are doing a favor because that might turn against you. Do what you feel is righteous and don’t let anyone force you to do anything.

Another meaning of this dream is that you don’t want to tell someone that they are annoying and you find them boring. Just be honest and speak your mind.

This is almost impossible to do in real life. If you had a dream about coughing with your eyes open it means that you will go over your boundaries and make a big change in your life.

You will stop suppressing yourself and you will start getting motivated to do many things in life.

This is a very positive dream and tells you that you should use your free time to build yourself up and change your life.

In other words, this dream indicates that you are allergic to someone’s appearance. You should distance yourself from people who suck out all your positivity and show them that you don’t want to have anything with them.

Dreaming of coughing into someone

If you had a dream of coughing into someone’s face, it means that you might accidentally cause damage to someone’s property.

This dream is a sign that you should be careful with the people around you and watch your steps. You don’t want to cause any accidents.

No matter what is the problem, you will manage to solve it and you will be very happy with your decisions.

If you inhaled pepper in a dream and you started to cough after that, it means that something is irritating you.
