Ways To Get Rid Of Phlegm In The Throat?
Good afternoon … I want to ask the doctrine how to get rid of phlegm so that the sound can return to normal again … The day the sound is getting smaller please give an explanation and what should I do and what should I drink to be able to return to normal?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Phlegm is mucus released by special cells in the respiratory tract, usually in response to irritation of the respiratory tract, for example by cigarette smoke, dust and pollution, bacterial infections, allergies and in response to consuming sweet drinks.
There are various ways to eliminate phlegm both with drugs and naturally. If naturally, among the ways we recommend are:
Consume lots of water, especially warm water and warm tea, but which do not contain a lot of sugar. Consumption of spicy foods, but only for those who have no problems eating spicy foods. Eat warm foods like chicken soup Gargling with salt water while tilting your head. Steam from warm water mixed with honey. Use a humidifier or humidifier
In addition, regarding your question, usually the existence of phlegm alone will not make the person's voice shrink. If there are such symptoms, there may be other conditions such as inflammation of the vocal cords (laryngitis), pharyngitis conditions or acute respiratory infections that also take place. Therefore, it would be better to immediately consult a general practitioner first, especially if the methods above have been done and not produce results. With a check up, the doctor can better know the root of the problem experienced and determine the best treatment.
Meanwhile, support your immune system by taking regular breaks, eating healthy foods such as vegetables and fruit, avoiding cigarette smoke and pollution, and avoiding stress. So, hopefully answering your question.
