Whether I Am Asthma Or Not And Whether The Breath Drug Sold At A Food Stall Is Good For Asthmatics
Hello dokI sometimes experience shortness of breath or asthma but in my family no one has a history of asthma, the first time I had asthma when I was 15, at that time I coughed and at midnight my breath was very tight so I had to be taken to the hospital and treated for 4 days, there I was surprised the results of the test misssen said I was asthma. I know that asthma is a hereditary disease and if I have an asthma offspring why would I relapse at the age of 15 years? If I see children who have congenital asthma either from their mother or grandmother’s father from childhood it appears not as a teenager. After that every time I have a cough I must follow shortness of breath, but usually just take cough medicine or drink warm water for sure get well soon. Then at the age of 20 years I experienced the same symptoms again, coughing and midnight fever and shortness of breath that was very heavy until tomorrow he was hospitalized. My question is whether this is really asthma or allergies or what, the problem is between the distance between me sickness that the first time it was far away the distance up to 5 years until recurrence to 2 .. sometimes there is a cough that makes me short of breath some are just coughing but not coughing just ordinary cough docAnd sometimes when I take medicine that is sold at the stall that does not have an effect at all … I feel that it worsened my condition … is the medicine for breathing safe? Thanks
Hello Bambang, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Asthma is a chronic disease that is characterized by an increase in airway sensitivity to various stimuli from the outside, such as dust, pollen, cold air, food and others that cause airway constriction. In asthma inflammation and narrowing of the airways that cause shortness or difficulty breathing. This situation will provide symptoms such as shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing which is often accompanied by mucus (phlegm) and sometimes chest pain.
Asthma is caused by two factors, namely factors from within and from the environment. The inner factor in question is from one's self, namely heredity such as a history of asthma, or a history of allergies. Environmental factors can be allergens, dust, air pollution, cigarette smoke, respiratory infections, cold air, diet / food, etc. Asthma can occur to anyone, and can appear at any time. Although asthma often suffers as a child, it does not mean asthma is not likely to occur when a teenager or adult. Asthma also occurs erratically, depending on exposure to the cause. So it cannot be ascertained whether in a short or long distance.
Treatment for asthma, should be given by a doctor. Because the treatment given must be based on physical examination on the patient directly. The drug Neonapacin contains 130 mg Theophylline, Ephedrine HCl 12.5 mg. This medicine can be used for asthma. If it does not subside, it may be that the tightness that you are experiencing at that time is not a recurring asthma. Therefore, it is advisable to consult a doctor if the complaint persists, to get more appropriate treatment.
That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
