Sleep With A Fan And Link To Diarrhea?
Good evening Hello Doctor. Does catching a cold (after sleeping with a fan tight) can cause diarrhea?
Thank you for the question.
In the medical realm, the term cold is unknown. Common colds are usually a term used by laypeople to describe a series of complaints, such as flatulence, nausea, frequent belching, loss of appetite, chills, weakness, dizziness, and other uncomfortable sensations. Do you mean complaints like this?
Exposure to strong winds, including from fans, should not necessarily cause you to experience diarrhea. However, excessive use of fans can make your body feel uncomfortable, even symptoms of inflammation in the respiratory tract, such as coughing, colds, shortness, wheezing, and so on. In people with cold allergies, this complaint can appear more severe.
Diarrhea is more common due to indigestion, for example due to infection, intestinal inflammation, food allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, poisoning, benign or malignant tumors, and so on. It is also possible, diarrhea arises due to excessive consumption of food or drinks that irritate the digestive tract, side effects of drugs, hormonal disorders, metabolic disorders, psychological disorders, and many other possible diseases.
Not all diarrhea is dangerous, and not all also need to be treated directly with medication. Frequently, diarrhea needs to be seen directly by a doctor if it is very massive (more than 10 times a day), does not improve within 3 days, or appears accompanied by other more severe complaints, such as fever, vomiting, colic, bloody or slimy stools, dehydration, and etc. If this is the kind of diarrhea that you experience, it is better to check yourself directly to the doctor or internal medicine doctor so that it is handled properly according to the cause huh ..
I hope this helps.
