Good evening, thanks for the question
Wet lung or what is called pneumonia in medical terms is an infection of the lung organ parenchyma which can be caused by infection with a viral, bacterial, or fungal organism. Symptoms include coughing up phlegm, fever, and shortness of breath. Pneumonia is not caused by specific cigarette smoke exposure, but indeed cigarette smoke exposure can aggravate pre-existing tightness complaints. Pneumonia itself is caused by an infection of microorganisms from the environment that attacks the airways.
This condition needs to be dealt with thoroughly because if left untreated it is at risk of causing severe respiratory disorders and other complications. To treat this condition, the treatment will be based on the cause of pneumonia above from the previous examination. Medications need to be taken regularly until they are cured. For this, follow the instructions for taking medication from the doctor who previously handled you.
There is no special type of food that needs to be avoided, but patients are encouraged to consume foods high in nutrition to restore the immune system. In addition, to prevent recurring complaints, it is important to adopt a healthy lifestyle, including by:
1. Do not smoke or breathe cigarette smoke
2. Wash your hands regularly using soap
3. Conduct ethical cough when coughing or sneezing by covering the mouth and nose
4. Consumption of healthy and nutritious foods
5. Perform pneumococcal vaccination
6. Improve the cleanliness of the neighborhood
That's all, hope you can help.
