Impact Of Babies Kissed By People With Lung Disease?

Hello. Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Whether or not a lung disease is transmitted to your child depends of course on the type of lung disease. Infectious pulmonary disease, generally caused by infection, such as tuberculosis and pneumonia. In this condition, a person can transmit the disease to other people through the air media when coughing or sneezing. For that, in people with lung infections, it is generally recommended to use a mask so as not to transmit it to other people.
Besides that, there are also lung diseases that cannot be transmitted to others, such as lung cancer, cystic fibrosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, etc.
For this reason, to determine whether it is contagious or not, of course, the type of lung disease must be known. For this you can ask the person concerned. If not yet known, you should advise him to see a pulmonary specialist to conduct an examination to find out the type of lung disease and can get appropriate treatment and education, for example wearing a mask so that in the future do not infect the people around him. In addition, you also need to consider whether there are signs of lung infection in your child, such as fever, spasms, coughs, etc. If there is, immediately check your child to the doctor for further tracking.
That's all the explanation from me. May be useful
