HealthReplies.com, is it true that if you have been suffering from bronchitis then the next if you cough will be healed for a long time? Please help, thank you
Hello Friday, thank you for the question.
Bronchitis is inflammation of the bronchi which is the main respiratory tract. In general, bronchitis can be divided into acute bronchitis (usually affecting children) and chronic bronchitis (usually experienced by parents, such as in COPD).
Complaints of persistent cough and not heal properly can be caused by chronic bronchitis, but other conditions can also be causes such as asthma, heart failure, air pollution, infections, and so on. So it is recommended if symptoms occur then do a doctor's examination so that the exact cause can be known and the handling will be more appropriate.
If these symptoms occur then things you can do at home include:
Consumption of enough water, especially in warm conditions
Avoid smoking or exposure to cigarette smoke
Use a mask and apply the correct ethics of coughing
If you have phlegm, do not expel phlegm carelessly
OBH can be chosen to relieve cough before consulting a doctor
That's all, hope it helps.
