Greetings HealthReplies.com, Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. A history of cough and the results of a doctor's examination showing bronchopneumonia indicate the possibility of a lung infection in your child that can be caused by a viral, bacterial or fungal infection. Bronchopneumonia disease often occurs in pediatric patients, especially under the age of 2 years, and often occurs in patients aged over 65 years. Complaints that can be felt in the form of colds, coughs, fever, shortness of breath, extra breath sounds especially during sleep, children appear nervous, fussy, appetite can close, weight loss. Diagnosis can be made by physical examination, blood examination and radiological examination. If your child has bronchopneumoni according to the results of the doctor's examination, but this complaint is still settled within 1 month, then you can ask for a second opinion or the opinion of another doctor (pediatrician) for the evaluation and examination of your child's condition. In general, 5-year-old pediatric patients with bronchopneumoni who have not improved within 1 month of treatment, can be influenced by several things, such as: 1. The child's condition is improving and recurring 2. Medication is not routinely taken 3. If the medication is gone, complaints of coughing are still There is, however, no immediate control returned to the doctor. 4. Nutritious food intake is less than optimal, because children do not want to eat 5. Still like eating snacks that stimulate coughing, instant food, packaged drinks 6. Because of drug resistance Therefore, you can evaluate several things that might aggravate the perceived complaint your child. If indeed there are some things that still exist and trigger this complaint, then avoid and limit it to help the recovery and treatment process. In addition, still you can continue the follow-up to the doctor's doctor (for now there is no need to see a pulmonary doctor). Convey information complaints so far, and what drugs have been taken by your child. This drug information will assist the doctor in providing further evaluation. If necessary, in addition to physical examinations, doctors can also plan supporting examinations, such as blood tests or radiological examinations.

The results of the inspection will be a reference for care and handling. For now, avoid some of the triggering factors that aggravate complaints and prolong the recovery process above.
