Coughing in salaah when making a mistake

Q: In a few of my past prayers, I remember I had moments where I’d get confused or make a mistake during prayer due to being nervous and in those moments I’d cough or sniffle without necessity, as a result of embarrassment and me not wanting anyone around me to think that I was struggling during salah. Do these salah’s need to be repeated?

A: It is not invalid.

Avoid sniffling.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
