Hiccups or singultus is a condition that is marked by a short inhalation reflex accompanied by a "hik" letter. When breathing in, the diaphragm muscle (the muscle that separates the chest cavity from the abdominal cavity) contracts. During a hiccup, the diaphragm muscle is stimulated to contract by itself, so that the body is inhaled but short and the airway is not ready to receive incoming air so there is a "hik" sound. This condition can occur due to smoking, eating spicy foods, sucking sweets, experiencing high stomach acid and others. Usually hiccups will last for a while and can disappear by itself. However, hiccups can also be prolonged for more than 2 days, which is usually caused by disorders of the organs near the diaphragm muscle that require special treatment, such as:
1. Disorders of the stomach and pancreas glands
2. Nerve disorders
3. Disorders of the lungs
4. Disorders of the heart
5. As a result of taking drugs

To help relieve hiccups, you can try the following tips.
1. Hold your breath
2. Take a deep breath
3. Breathe in a paper bag
5. Drink warm water and honey
6. Consuming fresh ginger
7. Suck the lemon slices
It is better to bring your father immediately to consult a doctor of internal medicine so that a thorough examination can be done to find the cause.
Thus hopefully useful.
