Is It Dangerous If Inhaled By Small Insects?

Hello, when I breathe by breathing in the air from my mouth, I accidentally have a small insect (maybe a mosquito) inhale and it feels like it has entered my lungs. So far, it feels like there’s only a little itching and sometimes coughing.

Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com

When a small foreign object in the form of an insect enters the airway, the insect will be captured by the cilia of the airway mucosa and the mucus produced by the airway mucosa. This insect will die and be pushed by cilia out of the airway. Until the throat will appear cough reflex, as compensation for the body to remove insects from the airways. In some cases, insects are successfully removed from the airways. In some other cases, the insect is swallowed and enters the digestive tract. In the digestive tract, insects will be destroyed by the movement of the digestive tract and digestive enzymes. The remaining digested insects will be removed through feces or feces along with food scraps. Even if the body is unable to remove insects from the airways, these small insects will be absorbed spontaneously by the body. There is nothing you need to worry about.

Likewise, hopefully it can help you.
