Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Bronchitis is an inflammatory condition that occurs in the bronchi, one of the structures that make up the respiratory system. Bronchi are located in the lung area. Bronchitis is divided into two, acute and chronic bronchitis. Where in acute conditions, bronchitis lasts for 2-3 weeks, and in chronic bronchitis, complaints that are felt at least occur for 3 months a year and recur in the following year. Acute bronchitis usually resolves on its own while in chronic bronchitis, the focus of treatment is more on reducing symptoms because there is no cure.
However, you must pay attention to one thing, that respiratory system diseases that are identical and typical with routine 6 months of treatment and in which one of the drugs can give a side effect of red urine are not bronchitis, but tuberculosis or tuberculosis. TB is a respiratory tract infection caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis and increases the risk of transmission to those who have the following risk factors:
Children or the elderly Have a low immune system such as those with HIV / AIDS or are undergoing chemotherapy Be in an environment where the air circulation is not good and sunlight does not illuminate the room Close to or frequently in contact with other TB sufferers, or people suspected of having TB such as people with a history of long / prolonged cough
If this is the case with your child, then as long as your child obeys the rules for taking the medicine, there is a possibility for a full recovery. Usually, those who undergo this treatment also have evaluations done at month 1 or 2 and month 5.
So our advice, make sure to go back to the doctor who treats your child about what disease your child is suffering from. Regardless of whether bronchitis or tuberculosis, this condition is very disturbing to the sufferer, but usually the sufferer can still do activities like people in general. Therefore, continue to support your child both morally and materially, and keep his immune system by always providing nutrient-rich food, ensuring adequate rest, keeping him away from dust, cigarette smoke, pollution, and sick people, as well as regularly getting him checked by a doctor.
