How To Deal With Shortness Of Breath When Coughing?
Slmt mlm .. I want to ask .. when I have the flu, I like to go to the fever, then cough, from the cough, I feel shortness of breath, if I breathe in like back pain, like asthma. Even if the flu just coughs then it goes to asthma. Why is that? Prevention to prevent asthma from the flu in what way? Thank you before
Good evening, thanks for the question
Keep in mind that complaints of normal shortness of breath with shortness of breath in asthma are different. At the diagnosis of an asthma attack, the patient will complain of complaints of moderate to severe shortness of breath accompanied by a wheezing sound. This condition occurs due to sudden narrowing of the airways due to external triggers and is often genetically inherited. Handling of shortness of breath in asthma attacks and in upper respiratory tract infections is certainly also different. Shortness of breath in asthma will only disappear with special treatment to widen the lower airway.
Shortness of breath without wheezing that accompanies complaints of cough and cold can be caused by nasal obstruction, or accumulation of mucus in the lower airway. Handling is by overcoming nasal mucosal congestion, thinning phlegm, and stimulating expectoration of phlegm using drugs. More severe conditions can occur if shortness of breath is caused by an infection in the lung parenchyma called pneumonia. In this condition severe shortness of breath can occur and requires treatment in hospital.
At this time it is better to do a consultation with a doctor before you can do a physical examination. More targeted treatment and non-pharmacological advice will later be given based on the diagnosis of the cause of the shortness you feel. It is also recommended not to expel phlegm in any place, keep personal hygiene and the environment, and avoid the use of over-the-counter medicines without doctor's recommendations.
That's all, hope you can help.
