Hello Rima, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Before me, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Hypersensitivity or allergic reaction is an excessive reaction of the body's immune system to a certain substance / object, and does not occur in everyone. Symptoms of allergies themselves are rashes on the skin, itching, sneezing, sneezing, runny nose, and shortness of breath. Hiccups are not allergy symptoms.
Dexamethasone itself is a corticosteroid class of drugs, this drug has a function to overcome inflammation, allergic reactions, and and autoimmune diseases. However, some cases of dexamethasone allergy, but a few cases. In the use of this drug should use a recommendation from a doctor, because long-term use that is not controlled can actually cause other diseases. Some articles say that the use of dexa in long periods of time can cause hiccups.
Hiccups or singultus are contractions in the diaphragm that are sudden and unintentional, causing discomfort. Hiccups are very common, usually occurs for a few seconds or minutes (temporary) and 48 hours (prolonged).
Prolonged hiccups are usually based on several things, namely:
Gastritis, peptic ulcers, inflammation of the digestive tract. intestinal obstruction, or inflammation of the liver. Disorders of the central nervous system. Stroke bleeding, inflammation and brain infections, brain tumors. Infection of the lungs (pulmonary TB infection, pneumonia). Mental disorders, such as anorexia and schizophrenia. The use of certain drugs such as: sedatives (diazepam), chemotherapy drugs, Methyldopa, and Dexamethasone. If the hiccups last more than 24 hours, immediately consult your doctor to get a certain treatment. Right now what you can do is:
Be careful using drugs with corticosteroid groups, it must be with a doctor's recommendation. Try to reduce the symptoms of your hiccups, such as by drinking warm water, holding your breath, taking a deep breath, etc. Enough rest. and eat nutritious food and drinks. A few answers from me, hopefully it helps.
