Cough Treatment That Has Lasted For 1 Month?
Good afternoon doctor,
Hello Mayangsari, thank you for asking.
A cough that lasts a long time is very annoying, especially when in pregnancy. The cause is certainly diverse. Coughing may be caused by allergies, irritation, infection, or other diseases. In some pregnant women, cough sometimes occurs throughout most of the pregnancy and ends during childbirth, but until now the mechanism is unclear. Environmental temperature, humidity, the presence of dust or smoke, is often not realized by someone, so that the cough does not heal. Note whether there is a source of dust or smoke in your neighborhood. Also note whether there is animal hair, pollen, or exposure to certain chemicals that come from the environment.
A cough that is triggered due to cold temperatures or low humidity is indeed rather difficult to overcome, because it is a factor that cannot be changed by humans. You can try installing a humidifier, wearing a mask (to get warm air into the airway), warm drinks available (such as ginger or honey), wearing warm clothing, or applying oil or other warm rubbing.
Try not to pile things up so they don't become a den of dust. Improve ventilation and irradiation of the room. Clean the dust every day.
Have you tried consulting a pulmonary specialist? If not, you may need to consult a pulmonary specialist to get the right examination and therapy. The doctor will look for any possible infections that should be treated with antibiotics. In addition, your doctor may need to use several types of medication to control your cough.
Thus our brief information. Hope it helps a little. Regards.
