The night after a high fever and accompanied by cough why did my phlegm increase yes sometimes to inhale so cough because of phlegm

1 Answer:

Hello Kobayashi, Thank you for the question.


Mucus or phlegm is produced by the respiratory tract as one of the body's defense mechanisms against the presence of irritants or foreign objects. The phlegm that is produced will trap the irritant or foreign body and then together with the ciliary mechanism (fine hair) in the respiratory tract will be taken out of the respiratory tract, one of them in the form of cough response. Likewise if an infection occurs in the respiratory tract, this infection can cause inflammation of the respiratory tract. One inflammatory reaction will cause increased phlegm production which is then coughed out of the respiratory tract.


The increase in sputum production that you are experiencing may be caused by the things mentioned above. If you still have a high fever, the cause might be an infection. The following medical conditions can cause phlegm production in the respiratory tract:

sinusitis
flu
bronchitis
pneumonia
tuberculosis

You can try consuming warm drinks to help thin the phlegm. In addition, you are also encouraged to maintain health by getting enough rest, consuming nutritious food, meeting your body's fluid needs by consuming water, and avoiding smoking. If this complaint is very disturbing or is accompanied by continuous high fever and shortness of breath, please consult your doctor immediately for further examination and treatment.


Hopefully this information is useful.
