Lump In The Oral Cavity Until Shortness Of Breath?
I want to ask my friend if someone drinks alcohol until the uvula is swollen and it’s hard to breathe, how do you deal with it?
Hello Rica, Thank you for the question
Has your friend further consulted a doctor? If your friend has experienced difficulty breathing, you should encourage your friend to immediately consult with a doctor further so that the condition can be treated immediately because this complaint can not be handled alone without medical treatment.
The uvula is a structure inside the oral cavity that hangs on the roof of the mouth in the throat. Uvula serves to help swallow food and helps prevent food from getting into the nose. Swollen uvula is known as uvulitis in medical language. In addition to the swollen and red uvula, this condition can cause symptoms of sore throat, itchy throat, pain or difficulty swallowing, difficulty breathing. Some of the causes of the swelling of the uvula are allergens, infections, stomach acid disease, excessive alcohol consumption, smoking habits, side effects of consuming certain drugs.
Please advise your friend to immediately consult an ENT specialist before the symptoms get worse. The doctor will conduct further tests before determining the next treatment. In the meantime, encourage your friends to avoid further consumption of alcoholic beverages, increase consumption of water, avoid smoking habits, and avoid exposure to cigarette smoke, dust or animal dander.
