Hello hope you are doing well.
What other symptoms are present? Cough with breathlessness can be due to several causes like viral infections, allergies or bacterial infection. The common causes of cough with breathlessness for few seconds are viral infections, whooping cough, bronchitis, bronchial asthma or any other problem related to the lung. It is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. See a physician. A physical examination, investigations like complete blood count and X-ray chest may provide more information. Do keep me posted on your health.
Take care and regards.
