Hello doctor, I want to ask.

Hello Nathania, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I help answer your questions sequentially yes.
1. Shortness of breath experienced when coughing or runny nose is sometimes quite a natural thing to experience because when coughing / runny nose, the respiratory tract can experience a blockage so that the flow of air into the lungs is not optimal. Almost all disorders of the respiratory tract such as ARI, rhinitis (either allergic or vasomotor), flu, lung infections (pneumonia), bronchitis, asthma, or COPD can cause complaints of shortness of breath as long as the cause is not treated properly.
If in the future you experience the complaint again, it is advisable to check the complaint directly to the doctor for evaluation so that it can be determined what causes it and what therapy should be given.
2. Normally everyone must experience about 50-100 strands of hair loss per day due to the hair growth cycle. However, if the hair loss exceeds 100 strands per day, this condition is only stated as a disorder in which the causes themselves are as varied as:
deficiency of certain nutrients (eg protein)
hormonal changes (such as during pregnancy, postpartum, or menopause)
thyroid hormone production disorders
in certain therapies (eg cancer therapy, post surgery)
fungal infection of the head
hairstyling (such as tying hair too tightly, using hair care products that are not appropriate, often painting hair, doing hairstyling using hair straightener / curling tools, etc.)
Because the causes are quite numerous and many factors need to be assessed in the treatment of hair loss, it is highly recommended to consult the complaint further with a dermatologist or a beauty doctor. However, because this is not an emergency, you are advised to postpone direct consultation to the conditions that are possible, or use the specialist's chat feature on the HealthReplies.com application.
In the meantime, try to pay attention to yourself independently if there is one cause of hair loss as written above that you have / do, if there is one, try to eliminate one of the causes that you can eliminate yourself and try to use appropriate hair care products until there is a recommendation more from your doctor.
I hope this helps.
