Dry Cough With Phlegm And Slightly Itchy Lungs And A Little Heat?
Morning, I want to ask. U003cbr u003e Why does my lungs feel itchy so it triggers coughing, it feels hot in the lungs too long, there is a little mucus but not much, feels a little tight in breathing (not relieved). My throat didn’t hurt and it didn’t it. U003cbr u003c u003cbr u003e u003cbr u003e3-4 weeks ago I caught a cold, and after a few days my flu got better (took 2 ciprofloxacin antibiotics), but coughed not lost until now, and starting to feel a little tightness + heat.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. In the main complaint, the condition of a long cough can occur due to the following possibilities, including:
Stomach acid disease
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
Side effects of blood pressure medications
Especially in your case, this is very likely due to stomach acid disease, considering you do have a history. Because although this is a disease of the digestive system, complaints can also be in the form of shortness of breath, coughing, pain and heat in the chest and neck, and back pain. The trigger was not only late eating, eating spicy, sour and oily foods and coffee consumption can trigger an increase in stomach acid.
However, because the examination has not been done, and because all these diseases can also cause symptoms similar to how you feel, then the best step you can take is to check your condition with a pulmonary doctor. By checking with a pulmonary doctor, there will also be supporting examinations such as phlegm checks and chest X-rays that can further make your disease a little more probable. The handling you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection.
Meanwhile, you can consume warm drinks mixed with lemon and honey, avoid coffee, take a shower or soak in warm water, avoid cigarettes, dust and smoke, and do not consume prescription drugs without doctor's advice. So, hopefully answering your question.
