Tonight, I’m wanda. Want to ask, I have been coughing since late September. First I felt sore throat, flu, and finally coughing up phlegm. Then now it’s still coughing but the frequency has decreased, so it’s rare. In my opinion, it’s a cough, because all I feel is if itchy throat just wants to cough, then right in the ac room it also coughs a lot (even though it used to be normal) but there’s very little phlegm and rarely comes out. I don’t feel any other symptoms such as tuberculosis which causes coughing up blood, fever, decreased BB. My appetite, but usually. Only what made me parno, then my friend’s father died because of tuberculosis, then I remember that in early September I peaked in the mountains with my friend. At that time he coughed, but I don’t know why he coughed. About what kind of cough I have experienced, including cough? Please answer. thank you

Hello Riswanda! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.

Coughing that occurs for more than 2 weeks should be suspected instead of an ordinary cough. Because Indonesia is a country with a high rate of tuberculosis, you need to undergo sputum examination to determine whether you have contracted tuberculosis. Patients with tuberculosis do not always show symptoms of bloody cough, fever, or weight loss. You also may not necessarily be infected from your friends. It is very likely that you have been infected for a long time, but the disease is only active at this time. You should come to the doctor, especially the lung specialist, to be examined. Even if your tuberculosis test results are negative, you still need to find out the disease you are experiencing so that it can be handled properly. For that, you need to be examined directly by a doctor. Apart from tuberculosis, you may still experience other lung infections (pneumonia), cough due to allergies or asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or even malignancy (lung cancer). In addition, leftover stomach acid disorders can also cause a long cough due to irritation, but generally do not cause coughing up phlegm. The cause of the cough you experience cannot be determined solely by your story. Come to the doctor for examination. In the meantime, wear a mask so you don't infect people around you. You should also increase your rest and increase protein consumption, such as chicken, beef, fish and eggs.

That's all information from me. I hope this helps.

Regards.
