Breath Sounds “ngokk” In Infants Aged 1 Year 2 Months?
Hello, I want to ask, it’s been almost a week since my child sighed there was a rich voice “creaking” like there was a ripple in it, my child is 1 year old 2 months. but he didn’t have a cold or a cough. What are the symptoms? The problem is that his appetite has decreased and he continues to be fussy. Please give a solution and an explanation. Thank you
Hello Mrs. Sumarni,
Noisy breath sounds, either groggy or like being squeezed in a newborn for several months, usually only because the channel is still narrow and mucus buildup due to poor airway cleaning mechanisms. However, your child is now one year and two months old and is accompanied by a decreased appetite and is fussy, so it is better to be examined further to determine the cause.
Breath sounds like squeezing in babies can be caused by asthma, a foreign object, or a respiratory infection. You can consult the pediatrician so that the pediatrician can examine your child, either with questions and answers to you, direct physical examination of the child, and also supporting examinations such as x-rays or blood tests.
