Good night. I want to ask. I have symptoms of cough for 2 weeks and pain when taking a deep breath. And sputum is difficult to get out. That’s why? I’m afraid it leads to pulmonary tuberculosis

1 Answer:

Hi Risa,


Complaints of cough is indeed one of the complaints that can be caused by pulmonary tuberculosis. However, coughing can also be caused by other conditions so that the complaints you are experiencing right now are not caused by TB but by some of the following:

Infection or inflammation of the airways (nose, throat)
Asthma
Bronchitis
Pulmonary infections such as pneumonia

Other lung disorders, for example atelectasis or bronchientasis


Direct inspection is needed to ascertain the cause of a complaint. Therefore you should check yourself at a doctor if indeed the complaint is very disturbing or causes worry so that the doctor can provide appropriate treatment.


The doctor will ask for a history of your complaints, conduct a physical examination and supporting examinations such as x-ray examination or sputum if necessary. If indeed the complaint is caused by tuberculosis infection, the doctor will prescribe symptomatic drugs (to treat symptoms) and antituberculosis drugs according to the TB treatment regimen and resistance test.


The following recommendations for you:

Manage stress wisely
Perform a healthy lifestyle
Avoid conditions that can trigger complaints
Immediately consult a doctor if complaints persist or worsen

May be useful,
