Hello Calvin, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Ingestion of small fruit seeds and in small amounts is generally harmless. If what you are interested in is duku fruit seeds, duku fruit seeds are also included in the small size. However, seeds are difficult to digest in the digestive system, so seeds that are ingested in large sizes may be at risk of obstruction in the digestive tract. However, if the small size of most cases can still be removed through the waste wasted during bowel movements.
In mild conditions, seeds stuck in the throat will dissolve in less than 24 hours along with the food or drinks you consume so that they no longer cause a lump, or other uncomfortable sensations.
The process of swallowing sebanarnya from the oral cavity of the food will enter the esophagus (esophagus) then enter the stomach for further digestion. But food that enters the airway certainly is a dangerous condition, usually if it enters the airway the upper part of the body's response to the sufferer will choke, and then appear coughing as the body's natural response to release the object.
Therefore, if there is a choking, accompanied by shortness of breath it is an emergency condition that requires immediate treatment. We recommend that you immediately seek help from the nearest person or medical personnel in the emergency room if you experience choking complaints accompanied by shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
However, if after swallowing the fruit seeds your brother does not experience shortness of breath and can undergo activities usually you do not need to worry too much. The throat feels a sensation that is related generally experienced at the beginning of the beginning when choked by seeds that are swallowed, but this usually does not occur for a long time and will disappear by itself. However, if the lump does not disappear or improve, you can consult the nearest doctor.

If the seeds are stuck in the deeper part of the doctor may need a supportive examination to see objects that are stuck using camera binoculars or called an endoscope. But this rarely happens. Usually the object will be in the digestive tract. And if it does not cause complaints in the form of abdominal pain, vomiting, nausea, difficulty CHAPTER You do not need to worry too much. However, if the complaint arises, or a sense of wedge does not improve within 1 day you should consult a doctor at the nearest health facility.
