1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for your question.


My first suggestion: see a doctor.


A cough that reaches 4 months should not be underestimated, especially if it is phlegm, and there are constitutional symptoms such as weakness, decreased appetite, fever, and especially weight loss.


Chronic cough like this should be further explored the cause. A detailed medical interview should be conducted, as well as a physical examination should be done to help guide the diagnosis. In most cases, investigations such as chest X-rays, spirometry and sputum examination are the most commonly performed investigations in an attempt to diagnose this kind of complaint. Other examinations can be carried out according to further indications / findings. various conditions such as tuberculosis, asthma, bronchitis, to lung malignancy can cause complaints like this.


You can temporarily use a cough with phlegm such as OBH, or drugs that contain guaifenesin / glyceryl guaiacolate, ambroxol, bromhexine, or n acetyl cysteine ​​to help expel phlegm. Do not use cough suppressants such as codeine, dextrometorphan or noscapine because it will make it difficult for phlegm to pass and a buildup of phlegm in the airways.


If necessary, consultation / referral to an internal medicine specialist or pulmonologist may be required


chronic cough


That is what I can say, hopefully this is useful.
