You can cure Coughing in Starfield by visiting a medic or by using the Injector item. Coughing is an ailment that can worsen quickly to severe Lung Damage, and it's best to cure it early on. Most often, you'll find your character coughing at different instances, especially while sprinting. Coughing onsets sporadic O2 damage, and to cure this condition, I used the Injector.

This medical item can also be used to cure the following ailments:

  • Brain Injury
  • Concussions
  • Heatstrokes
  • Hernia
  • Hypothermia
  • Lung damage
  • Poisoning
  • Radiation Poisoning
