Hello Romario, Thank you for your question.
Symptoms in the respiratory tract can be caused by various health conditions that will be treated with different treatments depending on the underlying disease. The 6-month treatment that you ask may be tuberculosis (TB) treatment. TB is an infection that can attack the lungs and organs outside the lungs caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis. This bacterium can spread from person to person by inhaling splashes of coughing or sneezing from sufferers. Infection in the lungs can cause symptoms such as coughing for more than 3 weeks, coughing up blood, fever, shortness of breath, chest pain, weight loss, weakness, and decreased appetite. To diagnose TB, doctors need to interview patients' complaints, examine patients, and conduct other examinations such as blood tests, sputum examinations, x-rays. If proven to have TB, patients will be treated with antituberculosis (OAT) drugs for at least 6 months.
Hopefully this information helps you.
