Hello, my mother had a stroke, but lately it was accompanied by coughing every night and morning when it was cold .. Can my mother drink ginger drink to relieve her cough?

1 Answer:

Hello Tabita,

Thank you for the question.

Stroke sufferers often experience problems when eating, thus making acid from the stomach vulnerable to reflux into the throat. In addition, several types of drugs that are often prescribed in stroke patients, can also cause increased stomach acid production and trigger discomfort in the throat. These factors can certainly make stroke sufferers more prone to coughing. In addition, this cough can also occur due to other triggers, such as exposure to dry air, allergies, viral or bacterial infections, asthma, bronchitis, excessive vocal cord stretching, congestive heart failure, and so on.

Because there are many possible causes, the handling of cough can be different. In patients with stroke, the consumption of cough medicines should also not be done haphazardly, for fear of causing negative interactions with the treatment of stroke that is being undertaken by patients.

Therefore, the cough should be treated first by:

 Give your mother a lot to drink warm water, may also add ginger or lemon Give her also a variety of fruits that are rich in vitamin C and foods that can help moisturize the throat (for example broth, honey) Don't give your mother lots of fried foods, spicy foods, cold foods, and artificial sweetness Give your mother a small but regular meal. Give her more vegetables and whole grains that are rich in antioxidants. Keep your mother away from cigarette smoke, dry air, cold temperatures, and other allergens. Let your mother get plenty of rest, ask he so as not to talk too much However, if the cough does not improve within 3 days, or appears fever, vomiting, shortness of breath, sputum bleeding, also other complaints that are more severe, then you should consult your mother directly to the doctor or doctor of disease in order to be further handled

I hope this helps.
