Hello Agus, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
From the results of your x-ray examination, it is said that there is an impression of bronchitis. Bronchitis is an inflammation / infection that occurs in the main respiratory tract of the lungs or called the bronchus. Bronchitis can be caused by several things such as:
Smoking or smoking cigarette smoke / active and passive smokers.
Exposure to hazardous substances, ranging from dust, ammonia, or chlorine when working or doing daily activities.
Children under the age of 5 years or adults over 40 years.
Having a weak immune system.
Did not get influenza or pneumonia vaccine, etc.
Someone who has bronchitis, can cause symptoms such as coughing with yellowish-green or green mucus, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose and nasal congestion, chest pain or discomfort, fatigue, and mild fever. Symptoms arising from Covid 19 infections are indeed almost the same as the symptoms of flu or other respiratory infections, namely coughing, high fever above 38 degrees Celsius, and shortness of breath. Even more suspicious of covid 19 is a history of contact with covid positive people 19 or a history of traveling / from a coinfected area 19.
Due to symptoms that are difficult to distinguish, then if a complaint arises, you should rest at home for at least 14 days. But if the complaints are getting burdensome then you should do a self-examination to the nearest doctor. Right now what you can do is:
Maintain a nutritious diet.
Consumption of enough water.
Avoid smoking / cigarette smoke and alcoholic drinks.
Consumption of vitamins.
Avoid traveling when it is not an emergency.
Perform physical distancing / self quarantine.
Use a mask.
Wash your hands often with soap.
Consult a doctor if complaints become more burdensome to be given the right treatment.
That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
