Hello. Thank you for your message.

Do you mean chest sarcoidosis? This is a rare condition that causes small patches of red and swollen tissue, called granulomas, to develop in the organs of the body. It usually affects the lungs and skin.

The symptoms of sarcoidosis depend on which organs are affected, but typically include:
tender, red bumps on the skin, shortness of breath, a persistent cough.

We can't say what your cough might be. It could be a viral or bacterial infection of some sort. If you suspect your past illness has returned or your cough worsens, see your doctor.
