Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com.
Based on the complaint you mentioned, it cannot lead to one definitive diagnosis. Need to do a physical examination and supporting examination. But I will try to explain some of the possibilities including:
1. Lung disorders, can be caused by infection, or allergies. Coughs caused by lungs due to infection will be marked by coughing up phlegm green or yellow, fever, flu, nausea, headache to shortness of breath. Depending on the severity of the infection. While cough due to allergic lungs marked coughing accompanied by shortness of breath sounds 'ngik-ngik'
2. Stomach disorders, coughs caused by stomach disorders are usually marked cough that feels like mucus but it is difficult to get out, itchy and nausea and tightness of the middle abdomen.
Based on your complaint, the complaint can lead to stomach disorders due to increased stomach acid. Acid in the stomach will irritate the esophagus so that it can trigger mucus and itching in the throat. Treatment for stomach acid takes approximately 6 weeks, so even though there are no complaints, you should consume up to 6 weeks. You can take sucralfate or antacids. In addition to taking medicine, you also have to improve your lifestyle. Like eating on time, avoid the consumption of coffee, noodles, spicy and sour.
