Hello, thank you for your question.
Bronchopneumonia is an inflammation of the lungs and bronchial tubes due to viral, bacterial or fungal infection. Here are some risk factors for bronchopneumonia:
Age. Age factors that are prone to bronchopneumonia are children under 2 years of age or seniors aged 65 years and over. Lifestyle such as smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, lack of nutritional intake. There is a disease or medical condition that has been suffered. This condition makes the immune system weaken, for example people with HIV / AIDS, cancer, heart disease, diabetes. Nosocomial infections, infections that occur in the hospital environment, for example in medical personnel or patient watchers. Bronchopneumonia can recur if your child has an infection in his airway. Although in terms of age, they are already over 2 years old, there are other factors that influence it. For this reason, your child's health must be maintained with good nutrition and a healthy environment. Avoid children in rooms with air that is polluted, including cigarette smoke. If your husband smokes, encourage your husband to stop smoking for his own health and the health of your children. If your husband insists on continuing his smoking habit, encourage him to smoke outside. Also encourage washing hands, cleaning mouth and changing clothes after smoking before your husband comes into contact with or comes into contact with your child.
