Good evening doctor, my father aged 53 there have been 6 months coughing up phlegm, have gone to the doctor in love with antibiotics and cough medicine. The medicine runs out of cough again, and so on. No fever in the days, normal weight and appetite, work as usual, no smoking from birth until now. Why isn’t the cough recovering, doc? And strangely, if you focus on doing something, for example, fixing the motorbike, or cleaning up the house, you don’t cough. If you sit like that, keep coughing again. He just gave him a cough. Please answer doc. Thanks

Hello, thank you for the question to

Chronic cough can be caused by many possibilities, here are some of them:

chronic bronchitis
post nasal drip (usually due to sinusitis)
GERD or stomach acid disease
side effects of antihypertensive drugs (ACE inhibitors)
respiratory tract irritation, for example due to certain chemicals, cigarette smoke, excessive air pollution
aspiration when eating / drinking (usually in people with swallowing disorders such as people after stroke)
heart failure
lung infection (eg tuberculosis)
lung cancer
psychological disorder

It is recommended that your father be brought back to the internist for further examination. Your father will likely need additional tests such as chest X-ray, sputum examination, blood tests, etc. To find out the best treatment for your father, the diagnosis of the cause of the cough must be confirmed first.

The following are some things that can be done for a while:

Suggest your father drink more fluids
Install an air humidifier or humidifier, especially in your father's bedroom and office, especially when using air conditioners
Inhaling warm water vapor (either from boiled water or warm water when bathing)
Drinking honey and ginger can help relieve the symptoms of cough
Rest and sleep enough to ensure the condition of the immune system remains good

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
