The Throat Was Blocked By Phlegm Until A Hoarse Voice?
Assalamuallaikum, .. good morning / afternoon / evening. I have a complaint in my throat that I often have phlegm, from high school in grade 2 if I’m not mistaken, now I’ve graduated. it felt like in the throat the phlegm was interfering with the voice, so it was a little hoarse to make recitations or something. why is that ?? I checked with a lung specialist but thank God the lungs are okay, I don’t smoke. but there is still sputum. love tricks
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The phlegm or mucus in the throat is actually a normal mechanism in the respiratory tract to remove foreign objects such as smoke, dust, and other impurities. When the airways become irritated, inflamed, or infected, sputum production will also increase.
In your case, by having checked with a pulmonary specialist, your efforts have actually been maximized, and because the results are good, it means that there is nothing serious that you need to worry about. Among what you can do is that even though you don't smoke, you still have to avoid people who smoke because you can still be a passive smoker. Also avoid pollution, dust and vehicle fumes because the following things can enter your respiratory tract and cause irritation.
In addition, do swimming or jogging in a pollution-free place to strengthen your body. Among the natural ingredients that can be used to treat phlegm are consuming lots of mineral water, eating spicy foods, drinking hot tea and chicken soup, and using a mixture of tea, lemon and honey. So, hopefully it answers your question.
