Hello ayuaprilia1904, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Coughing itself is the body's natural response to remove substances or particles from the respiratory tract and also prevent foreign objects from entering the lower respiratory tract. To treat a cough, it certainly needs to be treated based on the cause. The causes of cough include:
Viral, bacterial infections.
GERD or stomach acid disease
Irritation of the airways, for example due to inhalation of pollution or foreign matter
Tuberculosis or TB infection
Consumption of drugs or side effects of drugs such as the consumption of anti-hypertensive drugs such as ACE Inhibior can cause symptoms of dry cough
Therefore, the many causes of coughing need to be done direct examination so that the treatment given will suit your condition. Therefore, if the complaint is disturbing you should check with your doctor first.
In addition, the condition you are experiencing, that is, post operation, will certainly cause stitches in the former surgery; Where the wound healing process will take time and also need to be treated. When coughing, there can be pressure in the abdomen resulting in stitches on the abdomen can be disrupted or can cause open sores if the pressure in the stomach is very high. Therefore you should immediately seek treatment if coughing bothers you.
Consumption of cough medicines that are sold beba can help reduce symptoms. The cough medicine includes drugs that can reduce the coughing desire (antitussive), and which thin the phlegm so that the phlegm easily exits (expectorant). But it is better if you do an examination first to the doctor for appropriate treatment.
A cough caused by a viral infection can usually heal on its own, but to reduce the symptoms of cough that persist the doctor can provide some medicines to reduce these symptoms. In addition to drugs to reduce discomfort from coughing, the following steps can be taken, namely:
Drink plenty of water can thin the phlegm and prevent the oral cavity and throat to dry so that it can reduce the symptoms of cough due to irritation
Drinking warm drinks mixed with honey or ginger can also be an option to reduce your throat
Avoid substances that can cause irritation or allergies that trigger coughing, such as dust or smoke.
Add a pillow during sleep, so that the head is more raised.
