Coughing Up White Foam?
, I smoke for about – + 6 months, this week I often cough accompanied by a white, foamy mucus, the mucus in my nose is also a little yellow, it hurts between the cheeks and nose and I have a headache. What symptoms do you think this is sick?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The symptoms you feel, can occur due to several diseases that occur close to the time, and it could also be due to ongoing illness. Among the possibilities are:
Inflammation of the sinuses or sinusitis Airway irritation due to cigarette smoke, dust, and / or pollution
Which is to find out whether it is a particular disease or several separate conditions, you should check with your general practitioner first. Your GP will dig your medical history, perform a physical examination that focuses on the chest, and supports in the form of blood tests, X-rays, CT scans or sputum tests. The treatment you will receive later will depend on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, since you are also only about 6 months of smoking, our advice is to stop now before it gets harder for you to quit. The toxic content in cigarettes causes you to cough frequently because of the irritation and makes you more susceptible to respiratory diseases and more severe. Get plenty of exercise, drink mineral water, get adequate rest, and take over-the-counter pain medication to relieve pain. So, hopefully it answers your question.
