Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
Bronchial asthma is a long-term condition / disease in which the narrowing of the airways due to inflammation that occurs in the airways. Narrowing of the airways can cause shortness of breath accompanied by wheezing that can be heard when the individual breathes. This disease is caused by hyperreactivity of the airways to a substance causing an inflammatory reaction of the airways and narrowing of the airways. The main treatment for asthma is to use a bronchodilator to widen the airway, both in conditions of acute attacks or maintenance.
Bronchitis is a condition of inflammation and infection of the bronchi which is one part of the main respiratory tract. Bronchitis can occur due to a viral or bacterial infection, can occur in a short time or persist for a long period of time. Bronchitis is mainly characterized by the presence of cough symptoms that can be either non-productive cough or productive cough. If not handled properly, bronchitis can cause complications in the form of infection of the lungs / pneumonia, bronchitis itself can also be a condition in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, where the patient always coughs and suffocation repeatedly. Treatment of bronchitis is tailored to the cause of inflammation, can be used antibiotics to treat bacterial infections, as well as drugs to relieve other clinical symptoms.
Tuberculosis is an infectious disease of the respiratory tract caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis. This bacterium generally attacks the lungs, but can also attack various other organs in the body. Tuberculosis can dwell in the human body when bacteria enter the body and can enter a period of dormancy until a time when the condition of immunity weakens, clinical symptoms will appear.
