Hello Intan Anggara, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
X-rays are a method of investigation that utilizes electromagnetic radiation to look into the human body. In Indonesia, in particular many people misinterpreted this examination. The public thinks that whatever the disease can be seen using x-rays, for example patients come with complaints of stomach pain, and ask for x-rays, even though it is not necessarily the right examination.
Before I need to explain to you that 70% of the diagnosis of a disease can be established using history taking, a good physical examination fund. While supporting examinations such as blood tests, x-rays, ultrasound, etc. are complementary to re-ensure the disease, look for other causes. indications of hospitalization were obtained from the history, physical examination, and the patient's current condition.
Responding to complaints that tell the possibility that makes children not treated is acute shortness of conditions can be handled properly. Regarding your child's x-ray results, there is a slight abnormality on the part where there are infiltrates in both lung fields that indicate minimal mucus buildup, so that in the future the cause can be done while on outpatient course, and there is no need for hospitalization.
Right now what you can do is:
Get enough rest, and take care of your child's diet. Avoid using drugs carelessly. Be careful when taking medications from a doctor, pay attention to whether there are drug allergies, or excessive drug side effects. Routine control to your doctor in accordance with the specified schedule. That's all for me, thanks a lot :)
