Hello Grease, thanks for visiting HealthReplies.com.
Coughing is a natural response of the body by clearing mucus or irritants as a form of airway defense against external objects that enter the body. Complaints of a long cough that can recur, accompanied by shortness of breath, and are not contagious can be caused by several things, such as:
Allergic reactions, such as allergic rhinitis.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or acid reflux disease
Long-term relapsing disease, such as asthma.
Given that the complaints you feel are chronic, you should immediately consult a Lung Specialist so that the underlying cause is known. The doctor will dig for more in-depth information about your complaint and perform an in-person physical examination. In addition, if needed, the doctor will carry out supporting examinations such as blood tests, allergy tests, spirometry, x-rays. Once the underlying cause is known, the treatment given can be according to your condition. In addition, there are several efforts you can take to reduce complaints, such as:
Get enough rest at least 7-8 hours per day
Doing regular exercise 5 times a week, where one exercise for at least 30 minutes
Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption
Avoid consumption of fatty, oily, spicy, sour, caffeine foods
Increase the consumption of water 2-3 liters per day or at least 8 glasses per day
Avoid dust, cigarette smoke, flower pollen, animal hair.
Hope it is useful.
