Cough And Cold
My doc. I want to ask if I have an allergy to ashes when I cough. What breath do you have?
Thank you for the question.
Allergies occur when the immune system mistakenly considers the entry of certain substances into the body as dangerous, but it really isn't. Allergic reactions can vary from person to person. When these allergens enter the respiratory tract, such as ash, symptoms that often appear are coughing, shortness of breath, wheezing, sneezing, colds, but symptoms can also appear in other organ systems, such as skin rashes, bruntusan, swelling, swelling heart palpitations, and so on.
However, coughing and shortness of breath certainly can not only be caused by allergies. It could also, coughing and shortness of breath appear due to viral or bacterial infections (including Corona virus), foreign body aspiration, irritation, gastric acid reflux, psychic disorders, drug side effects, and so on.
Therefore, if you experience a cough and shortness that is very annoying, before taking any medicine, including anti-allergic drugs, you need to see a doctor or an internist first. As a first step, you can do it first:
Avoid things that can trigger your allergies
Improve your personal hygiene
Don't leave the house, unless it's urgent
Increase exercise, relaxation and rest
Eat regularly, but reduce consumption of cold, oily, and gassed foods while still coughing and breathing difficulties
Do not smoke
Hope this helps ...
