Hello Dewi, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Previously the results you gave were pulmonary radiological results, not laboratory results. The suspicion that has happened to you is Duplex Bronkopenumonia.
Bronchopneumonia itself is an infection of the lung tissue along with its airways (bronchi). Infection can be caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi. Symptoms of this disease can vary from severe to severe, but usually the symptoms that will arise are coughing, shortness of breath, and tend to be similar to bronchitis. So that for the enforcement of the diagnosis apart from a physical examination it is necessary to have a supporting examination such as chest failure.
Duplex bronchopemonia means infection of the right and left lungs. The need for another examination to look for the cause of infection such as a more complete history such as complaints of long cough> 2 weeks, coughing up blood, etc. Other tests such as sputum examination may be able to find out the cause of your lung infection. So I advise you to consult with a lung doctor, to get the right treatment.
Right now what you can do is:
Use a mask, because it is possible that your disease is contagious. Don't take any medicine. Control your pulmonary doctor regularly after you get treatment. Take medications correctly according to the doctor's recommendations. Get enough rest, and sleep 7-8 hours per day. Avoid smoking, and alcohol consumption because it can aggravate your symptoms. A few answers from me, hopefully it helps.
Thank you very much :)
