High temperature, shortness of breath, weakness, cough – These symptoms, which develop very quickly at the beginning, are characteristic of lung carcinoma. Similarly, acute illness is also indicated by the fact that the home does not pass over several days, but inflammation of the lungs that is not treated can lead to a fatal outcome. Ieva Zvagule, a doctor of "Euroapteka", explains why long-term cough should be taken very seriously and how to avoid dangerous pneumonia.
"Coughing, chills, high temperatures up to 40 degrees, headache and chest pain, which intensify with deeper inhalation – these symptoms that do not go away within a few days can indicate that the apparent cold is actually lung carnation and is not enough with normal cough syrup. In case of lung carcinoma, it is imperative to seek medical treatment because the only way to cure these diseases is to get antibiotics. There are of course cases where a person with strong immunity may not have symptoms, the disease progresses and the body can handle but can not be invoked. , "warns Ieva Zvagule and adds – if the disease is not held responsible, its consequences can be fatal, especially for young children, the elderly and patients with chronic diseases.
Not only lungs should be grown
In the fall, different viruses are activated when it is a cool and wet period, causing upper respiratory and pulmonary diseases more often than in other seasons. Lung carcinoma is often a complication of colds, bronchitis or other diseases, mainly due to pneumococci – bacteria that are constantly present on the respiratory tract mucosa. Although the majority of people experience colds without complications, they should not be treated easily.
Pneumonia is one of the most common diseases that people suffer from at all ages. Lung carcinogen is also home to a healthy microflora, but under favorable conditions it quickly breaks up and causes pneumonia. "With each breath, a large amount of microorganisms are released into the human body. Inflammation occurs when one of the respiratory system is not working properly, or the number of microorganisms is too high in this case, but the immune system is too weak to fight them," explains doctor. Such foci of microorganisms are also untreated teeth, tonsils, nasal sinuses and other inflammatory sources. The special risk group is smokers whose lungs are already forced to withstand a heavy strain. Therefore, pharmacists remind you that their health must be taken care of all the time. Host syrup does not help cure stubborn tonsils, which in turn can lead to additional inflammatory processes in the body.
What can and should not be done with lung sensation
The most common symptom of lung carcinoma is a cough, but this is not always the case. Similarly, in the case of lung carcinoma, body temperature is likely to rise from 37.5 to 40 and even more degrees. If this is a normal virus, the temperature will pass or at least decrease within four to five days. If this does not happen, you should definitely seek medical help. Your doctor will prescribe x-rays and blood samples to determine the C-reactive protein, which is usually a sign of bacterial inflammation and will be applied to antibiotic treatment.
But there are things that can also be done at home to get on the move faster. Pneumonia is a disease that has to be restarted, but not necessarily in a hospital. If a person feels normal and the temperature is not so high you can stay at home. In any case, it is advisable to walk around the house from time to time, as the lungs are less well ventilated in the lying position. Lungs can be ventilated, for example when blowing balloons, it helps to get rid of sputum and does not allow you to catch, but it is best to do that when a person is a bit better. Respiratory exercises can also be performed several times in a row by inhalation and exhalation. Be sure to also use a lot of fluid to remove as much as possible from the body all excesses – common water and herbal teas, cranberries and other natural substances that we usually use when cold are going to work.
What can not happen under any circumstances is the warming of inflamed places. For lung worms, forget about the mustard stains, as heating can contribute to the formation of stems.
Better not get sick
In order not to get cold, it's very important to boost immunity on time, using a full and vitaminic diet and natural immune enhancers, such as cranberries, garlic and other valuable natural bounty. If necessary, you can enrich your diet with a complex of vitamins, various vitamins and immune enhancing supplements can be purchased at the pharmacy. Be sure to get a lot of fluid – this is important not only in the summer heat, but also in regular meals, regular physical activity and quite a lot of fresh air.
Ieva Zvagule recalls: "It is worth remembering the old good truths – it is not recommended during the time of the virus to be in public places and to attend mass events, but it is desirable to regularly ventilate the premises, dress off the appropriate weather conditions and wash If you are ill, be better off staying for a few days and regain your health than to work as a hero, cough and sneeze to go to school or work , get complicated and meet others.
