Dry Cough Never Heals.?
Sorry, I want to ask my wife to have a dry cough but don’t bleed for more than 5 months. Results of X-ray Cor: normal radiologist Pulmo: Both blunt sinuses. Bilateral pleural effusion What is the doctrine of my wife’s type of cough?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
From the results of the wife's chest X-ray there, it can only be concluded that your wife has pleural effusion in both lungs. Pleural effusion means there is fluid in the space between the lining of the lung. The X-ray does not mention any other pathology in the lungs.
The following are some of the possible causes of pleural effusion:
congestive heart failure
disorders of the liver or disorders of the kidneys
lung infection (including tuberculosis infection)
certain autoimmune diseases (lupus for example)
The cause of a long cough does not always originate in the lungs. Old cough can also be caused by side effects of drugs (consumption of ACE inhibitors for the treatment of hypertension for example), GERD or stomach acid disease, sinusitis, allergies, etc.
To find out more clearly the cause of your wife's cough, you need more complete clinical data, physical examination, and other supporting examinations (if there are indications). You should bring the results of the x-ray examination back to your wife's doctor so that further analysis and appropriate therapy can be given.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
