Hello, I serve I have a younger brother who is 15 years old, for the past 2 months my sister has been sick with coughing, and when she coughs it can continue until she vomits. Sometimes it causes shortness of breath, my sister does not smoke. What disease is this? Then what is the treatment for? Because the cough only occurs at night or during the day not often, thank you

Hi Melliani,

If your sister has a cough that lasts up to 2 months then this condition is classified as a chronic cough. Excessive coughing can indeed trigger shortness of breath to vomiting, as experienced by your sister. The various possible causes of chronic cough include:

Bronchitis TB COPD/chronic obstructive pulmonary disease Asthma Acid reflux disease Heart disorders Taking certain medications Lung cancer
Considering that the complaint has been going on for a long time, you should consult a doctor so that it can be examined further. In addition to performing a physical examination, if necessary, the doctor may recommend supporting tests such as X-Ray or CT Scan to further explore the cause. From the results of this examination, the doctor will be able to determine the right treatment for your sister according to her basic condition.

In the meantime, suggestions for your sister:

Increase consumption of water 8-10 glasses a day Avoid consumption of fried, oily, spicy, or too cold/hot foods Gargle with warm salt water 2-3 times a day Avoid exposure to smoke, dust, pollen pollution, or cold air Wear a mask when traveling outside the house Get enough rest and eat nutritious food to keep the body immune
