Overcoming Cough Accompanied By Prolonged Flu Due To Allergies?
According to the doctor at the puskesmas, I cough and have a cold because of allergies. Indeed, I like to disturb the smell when there is excess odor like smoke or a strong scent. Or also cold, making my nose clogged and coughing. What type of medicine is right for me? Because this has been a long time, already 1 month
Hello Nathaniela, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Cough and flu complaints that you feel if it happens often and repeatedly can be caused by allergies. This allergy will cause an inflammatory reaction in the nasal cavity and cause allergic rhinitis. These complaints will continue to recur if you are exposed to the cause continuously and do not take precautions.
You should consult a doctor if complaints of cough and flu are getting heavy or continue to arise in order to get the appropriate treatment from the examination carried out on you. Right now what you can do is:
Avoid triggers for coughs and flu by using a mask or nose cover if there are excess odors such as smoke and strong scents that trigger your complaints arise. Get used to replace or wash items that are affected by cough and flu triggers. The medicine you will use should consult your nearest doctor to be able to ascertain your condition directly. That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
