Phlegm Cough Turns Into A Dry Cough After Taking Ambroxol And Antibiotics?
Good morning, I want to ask. Why after I took the medicine according to the doctor’s prescription, namely Ambroxol and taking antibiotics to relieve my phlegm cough, how come it turns into a dry cough that is continuous huh? thanks.
Thank you for the question.
Coughs most often occur because of disorders in the respiratory tract, for example due to rhinosinusitis, pharyngitis, laryngitis, bronchitis, asthma, pulmonary tuberculosis, pneumonia, lung cancer, pleural effusion, and so on. It could also, coughing is caused by disorders in other organs, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, gastritis, congestive heart failure, side effects of drugs, and so on.
Handling of this cough can be different, not only depending on the type of cough (whether or not phlegm), but also adjusted to the cause and severity. Your complaints that still cope with dry cough after you cough up phlegm can be treated, can occur because of inadequate treatment, a reasonable recovery process, or also because there are other factors that cause you to cough (as mentioned above).
It's better if you don't just take your doctor's medication, so that the coughing will quickly subside, you should also compensate for it by:
Avoid consuming cold and greasy foods and drinks. Eat lots of warm food, drink warm water, and fruits rich in vitamin C. Eat small but frequent portions. Don't talk or shout excessively. Use masks. Expand to break away from cigarettes and their smoke. , pollution, and other substances that are prone to triggering a cough If in 3 days the cough still does not improve, immediately check yourself back to the doctor, ENT doctor, or doctor of internal medicine to be treated further huh ..
I hope this helps.
