Slmt mlm, I am a mother aged 39 years. After 4 weeks, I had a cough, which started with a dry cough, which later became phlegm cough and flu. If the night is fever and dizziness. Had to get treatment, and given several drugs including Ciprofloxacin, Guaifenesin and dexamethasone. I am allergic to penicillin and antalgin. After taking the medicine no longer feels dizzy and fever, but still cough and cold. I ask, how severe / dangerous are the conditions that I am currently experiencing? What should I do about this spy disease that does not continue to be severe? And what type of medicine should I consume to recover quickly? Thank you before and after.
Good evening, thanks for the question
Chronic cough in adults is a cough that lasts more than 1 month. Coughing can be a dry cough or cough with phlegm, but it is not always caused by bronchitis.
Some causes of chronic cough include:
3. Allergic rhinitis
4. Pulmonary tuberculosis
7. Exposure to irritants from the environment
If at this time there are still complaints of cough that are quite disturbing you should re-consult with your doctor to evaluate the symptoms, a general physical and pulmonary examination, and supporting examinations to assess the severity of the disease. Supporting examinations that can be done include routine blood tests, chest x-ray examination, sputum examination, and so forth.
Treatment will be more directed if given the final diagnosis that is appropriate from the results of previous examinations. Basically, cough complaints based on infectious diseases can be fully treated with adequate antibiotics. Unlike the case with conditions based on allergic mechanisms, the disease can only be controlled and can be recurrent if there are triggering factors.
In serious causes can be accompanied by more severe complaints and requires aggressive treatment include:
1. Cold sweat at night
2. High fever
3. Weight loss
4. Chest pain
5. Coughing up blood
That's all, hope you can help.
