Many people are carrying lung bacteria again. Although they do not suffer from the disease. These bacteria attack when the immune system is weakened. That is why the disease is more prevalent in children, especially infants and the elderly.
Symptoms of Pneumonia
Lung diseases are common all over the world. As winter approaches, the number of people suffering from this contagious disease increases dramatically. Millions of its patients are being treated in hospitals around the world. Sometimes the disease can be fatal. Despite innovations and improvements in antibiotic discoveries, lung disease has not been cured and patients with the disease are forced to turn to a large number of hospitals.
A report by the Palestine Information Center sheds light on the causes, symptoms, effects, and treatment of pneumonia in the light of the views of health experts. The causes of this disease are described below.
Pneumonia is a chronic disease and probably the most important cause is bacteria. Some people attribute the virus to its causes and triggers. Toxins and boils that form in the body also reach the lungs through the respiratory system. Experts say that pneumonia in infants is caused by “golden cluster” bacteria.
Pneumonia is a contagious disease that can be transmitted to another person through coughing, sneezing, or even talking. Small drops are enough to make the disease contagious, which can spread from one sick person’s body to another. These drops can reach others through the air just by sneezing and make them sick.
Nicotine, found in cigarettes, is a strange substance that plays a key role in weakening the body’s immune system. That is why most lung patients are said to be addicted to smoking.
Coughing and a rise in body temperature above 40 degrees Celsius are generally considered symptoms of pneumonia. If these two symptoms go hand in hand, there is a greater risk of contracting the disease.
There are other symptoms of pneumonia. For example, the heart beats faster. Feeling cold for no reason, shortness of breath, and feeling pain in the bones. Yellowish-green color of mucus and sometimes bleeding with mucus are also symptoms of lung disease.
Lung disease causes rapid debilitating effects in the human body. Toxic substances in the blood increase which puts the patient’s life in danger. Difficulty breathing. In other words, the lungs do not get the amount of oxygen they need, which affects their functioning.
In the case of lung disease, the patient should rest as much as possible while giving up hard work. If there is any other disease along with the lungs or difficulty in breathing, a doctor should be consulted immediately. If this condition occurs in children, they should see a doctor immediately.
Penicillin-like antibiotics are usually considered the first treatment for the disease. It strengthens the immune system in the body as well as resists the causes of the disease.
