What Is Type 2 Bronchitis, And How Is The Treatment / Treatment?
HealthReplies.com ,, I’m early 31 years old. I often cough and tightness around 2 months. I have been visiting a lung specialist. After carrying out several tests (blood checks, x-rays, spirometry, dust) I declared type 2 bronitis and then I was given antibiotics, coughing medicines and concoctions. Now the drug is only 1 time left but it doesn’t show any signs of healing because I still feel a little dry cough shortness. My question here is: 1. What is type 2 bronchitis, contagious / dangerous this type of disease? 2. Because I still feel the symptoms, do I have to get treatment regularly? How long will the treatment take to complete recovery? 3. Any abstinence / maintenance from home that should be done? I really ask for your help … Thank you
Good evening Early, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your feelings. Bronchitis is an inflammatory condition that occurs in the respiratory tract called the bronchi. The bronchi are the channels that carry air to and from the lungs.
Regarding your question, bronchitis does have two types, but its mention is rarely referred to as type 1 and type 2, but acute and chronic bronchitis. The difference in this condition is the duration of the disease. Acute bronchitis is a milder bronchitis condition, and can heal itself within 7-10 days. Chronic bronchitis lasts longer, which can be up to 2 months or more.
There are various factors that increase a person's risk for bronchitis, namely:
Being near or around people with similar diseases
Smoking or frequently inhaling cigarette smoke
Do not accept influenza or pneumonia vaccines
Frequent exposure to hazardous substances such as pollution, dust, ammonia or chlorine
Having a weak immune system
Have other conditions such as stomach acid disease
This disease is often caused by a virus and can indeed be contagious, especially from sputum sputum sufferers. This invisible sputum can float in the air for a few moments and stick to the surface of a particular object before entering the body.
This disease is generally harmless, but in some rare cases, it can lead to complications characterized by shortness of breath, heart beating fast, sweating and chills, loss of appetite to cough up blood. So even though you already get treatment from a doctor, if you experience complaints like this, do not hesitate to regain control as soon as possible.
The duration of treatment varies depending on the person's immune system and whether the trigger factor still affects their health. Because for example like pollution, people who are equally affected by bronchitis, of course during the healing process avoiding pollution will be easier to heal than those who are still exposed throughout the day. Therefore it is important to avoid various triggers, and routine control to the doctor every time the medicine runs out and the complaints have not improved.
While at home, consume 8-12 glasses of warm water per day, get enough rest, avoid cigarette smoke, dust and pollution, inhale warm water vapor, use a special mask if you have to be in a place if it has a high pollution content, and consume food with balanced nutrition. So, hopefully answering your question.
