The emergence of complaints of cough repeatedly (after recovering / improving) can be caused by inadequate treatment or re-infection (reinfection). In such conditions the X-ray examination, sputum (culture and resistance) should be administered so that antibiotics can be given (if needed) in accordance with the causative bacteria.
The use of symptomatic drugs (according to symptoms) can be continued as long as the complaint does not worsen. However, if after treatment the complaint still persists or worsens, I strongly recommend that you consult a pulmonary specialist to get further treatment that suits your condition because cough complaints can also be caused by medical conditions other than infection, for example asthma, obstructive pulmonary disease , bronchitis or allergic reactions.
The following recommendations for you:
Avoid conditions that can trigger complaints Consumption of food that is easily digested Avoid foods that are too hot, cold, spicy, spicy or that can cause throat irritation. Consumption of enough water May be useful,
