Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Tuberculosis and asthma are diseases of the lungs and their different channels. The following will be discussed one by one.
TB (tuberculosis) or TB is a pulmonary infectious disease caused by mycobacterium tuberculosis bacteria. This bacterium is transmitted through the air, namely coughing or sneezing of adult pulmonary TB patients who contain bacteria. Therefore, children who are suspected of suffering from this illness, generally have a history of contact with adult TB sufferers, ie living at home with adult TB sufferers. Especially if the child's home does not have adequate lighting (windows) and air exchange (ventilation). Generally, this disease will be experienced by children who do not get BCG immunization. Children who suffer from this disease will experience a long cough for more than 3 weeks, high fever to sweat especially at night, drastic weight loss or weight loss according to age and swollen lymph nodes of the neck.
As for asthma, is an inflammatory disease of the airways caused by allergic reactions. Allergic reactions cause the airways to secrete a lot of mucus and thicken (swell) and constrict (constriction). This causes the sufferer to have difficulty breathing and make a "high" sound when breathing. Allergic reactions arise due to cold air, coughing or colds, certain types of food, animal hair, plant dust, house dust, air pollution (cigarette smoke) and others.
So cigarette smoke is not the only cause of symptoms experienced by mother children. Instead, the mother returns to control with a pediatrician who handles according to the schedule the doctor has set or before the drug runs out. So that the doctor can evaluate the treatment given, do a re-examination and continue the necessary investigations. Thus the doctor can tell the mother what pain the child is experiencing.
Meanwhile, drink the medicine that the doctor has given regularly. Make a child warm honey water mixed with squeezed oranges. Be diligent to give children warm water.
Thus hopefully useful.
