A Slimy Cough That Makes Breathing Difficult And The Throat Sore?
Hello doctor, I’m 22 years old Ninda want to ask. So I coughed a long time ago and had taken the tuberculosis test it turned out negative. My cough usually appears 2/3 days and often at night. When a coughing throat hurts so much that it feels full of mucus that I have difficulty breathing. I often cough to expel mucus that has accumulated, but if I cough too often and force my cough hard, mucus sometimes likes to have blood. Please answer the doctor’s best for my illness. Thank you very much.
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
The complaint that you are experiencing can be a symptom of the following disease, which is:
1. Chronic bronchitis
3. Pulmonary TB
We recommend that you continue the examination to the lung specialist. Have you had a chest X-ray? Not infrequently patients with pulmonary TB with sputum TB (sputum) negative examination results. This is because sufferers have difficulty spitting phlegm, so what is examined in the laboratory is often saliva. Of course the results of the examination will be negative. Therefore, chest X-ray examination is necessary. On chest X-ray examination will show whether there are abnormalities in the lungs or heart.
Meanwhile, try to clean your room (especially the bedroom) from dust. Because your complaint might be triggered by a dust allergy. Open the window every morning until dusk so that the air exchange and lighting your room is good. Consumption of honey mixed with squeezed oranges brewed with warm water. Drink regularly every day. Drink plenty of water, especially warm water, which is at least 2 L a day.
Thus hopefully useful.
