Pneumonia is an infection in the lungs. Your lungs are lined with tiny air sacs called alveoli, which carry oxygen to the bloodstream. When pneumonia infects these sacs, they become irritated and inflamed and your body fights the infection by filling the lungs with phlegm. Unfortunately this makes it hard for oxygen to reach the bloodstream and can cause a severe, painful cough.
