Cough Accompanied By Yellowish Green Phlegm And Runny Nose In The Morning?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Tuberculosis (TB, TBC) does indeed often make sufferers experience a persistent cough (up to more than 2 weeks). In addition, TB can also cause sufferers to experience fever, excessive sweating, significant weight loss, weakness, decreased appetite, enlarged lymph nodes, and various other complaints.
However, a runny nose (runny or stuffy nose) is not a common symptom of TB. Usually, a cough with a cold occurs due to allergies. If complaints appear more often in the morning, then the possible trigger of the allergy is due to cold temperatures or pollen. It is also possible that these allergies are triggered by the inhalation of animal hair, dust mites, smoke, or other substances. It could also be, coughs and colds occur because you have an infection, it could be in the respiratory tract, or other organ systems.
To distinguish each of the above possibilities, you need to consult a doctor directly. Your doctor may recommend that you undergo laboratory tests, X-rays, or sputum tests to determine the best treatment. If complaints occur due to allergies, then giving anti-allergic drugs, anti-cold coughs, and limiting contact with allergens are generally sufficient to resolve the complaint. However, if the trigger is different, then the handling can be different.
Try to be more careful in paying attention to whether there are certain substances that trigger your cough and cold, then as much as possible avoid contact with these substances, for example by using a nose mask, keeping the living environment clean, and improving ventilation. Also increase your immune system to avoid infection, namely by eating healthy and nutritious foods, exercising regularly, staying away from smoking, and drinking more. When coughs and colds recur, drink lots of warm water, rest more, and wear warm clothes, and take a shower with warm water.
Hope it helps ..
