Possibility Of Recovery From Lung Infection At The Age Of 20 Years?
Good afternoon, I want to ask about lung infection, can lung disease be cured in children aged 20 months ???
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Infection in the lungs, or pneumonia, can occur in anyone, male, female, old or young. In fact, the risk is increased in children under the age of 2 years and the elderly above 65 years because of its association with an imperfect or declining immune system. So, the conditions you mentioned are actually quite common.
Aside from an imperfect immune system, a child's risk of developing pneumonia can also increase if:
Exposed to measles
Did not get immunized
Then regarding your question, this disease can certainly be cured, although we as doctors cannot guarantee a certain cure, because there are many factors that must be considered and often people's health conditions can not be predicted. So we suggest that you should immediately take your child to the pediatrician to find out the cause of the infection, whether bacterial, viral, fungal, or other, and be given treatment according to the cause of the infection.
Meanwhile, still meet your child's nutritional intake well, keep food and the environment clean, and if he shows dangerous symptoms such as tightness, immediately take him to the nearest hospital emergency room. So, hopefully answering your question.
