The Throat Feels Like There’s A Lump In The Sputum?
Sorry I want to ask, I’m 18 years old. All night suddenly my throat rang and like there are ripples that block, why is that?
Thank you for the question.
The surface layer of the respiratory tract consists of a mucous / protective layer that can produce ripples or phlegm that functions to moisturize and protect the respiratory tract from germs such as viruses and bacteria. At certain moments, the production of sputum will become numerous and disrupt the larynx and vocal cords so that the throat sounds, and usually it is triggered by conditions such as:
Irritation of the respiratory tract. Allergy. Infection. Indigestion like GERD. Smoke. Disorders of the lungs such as pneumonia, or COPD. Here are things you can do to reduce the number of ripples or phlegm:
Conditioning the room so that it is damp and not dry. Drink lots of water, 2-3L per day. Don't suppress coughing if you want to cough, because coughing is a way to expel ripples / phlegm. Avoiding smoking and exposure to cigarette smoke. Identifying a history of allergies such as food intake. Avoiding exposure to irritating substances, such as chemicals, perfume, and pollution. Adequate nutrition and fruit consumption. Hopefully this information can help.
