Lung (Definition)

Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient.

Allergies/asthma: The symptoms you describe sound like they might be caused by allergies to something in your indoor or outdoor environment (pollens, dust, grass, pet fur/dander, etc). You might also have some reactive airway disease exacerbated by the same. Examine your environment for potential allergens and try to eliminate exposure to them. If this does not resolve, seek further medical evaluation/treatment. ...Read more

How is dry cough? I have an itchy feeling in my breathing pipe near my lungs and it forced me to cough 5 or 6 times a day, should I worry?

How is dry cough? I have an itchy feeling in my breathing pipe near my lungs and it forced me to cough 5 or 6 times a day, should I worry?

Maybe: Cough is a reflex mechanism that aids your immune system to get rid of any possible "pathogens" that can affect your immune system. Most coughing stops after 7-14 days. If it persists you need to get evaluated. If you are very worried then make an appointment sooner. Good luck. Most common causes include asthma, reflux, allergies, postnasal drip and medications. ...Read more

I have terrible chest congestion with a itchy cough in my lungs. I am on a z-pac. How long does it usually take to clear up?

Doctor can re-check: After starting antibiotics, things should be better each day after the first 2 days. Otherwise, the doctor can re-check to see if a different antibiotic or a longer course of antibiotics is needed. Sometimes asthma meds such as inhalers and anti-inflammatories like singulair (montelukast) or Prednisone are also needed. If doing well, a mild residual cough can be around for a couple of weeks, improving daily. ...Read more

38yr old b/f. Itchy all over at night, night sweats, persistent dry cough no help with inhalers had lung biopsy diagnosis with asthma lotio no help with itchy?

Additional allergies: The itching suggests that there might be a complicating component. I would advise that they check a serum tryptase and a serum alpha-galactose level. This may help sort if you are having a systemic reaction from mast cell release or a rare meat allergy that reacts 6-10 hours after eating meat. ...Read more

Chemical Reaction: Inhalation of chemicals are critical depending on the amount of exposure, the duration, and your symptoms. Considering you have a cough a further evaluation at an urgent care or emergency room would be judicious. This way they can check your vitals and examine your lungs. Some chemical inhalation can result in a severe lung reaction which may worsen. Please get checked out as soon as possible. ...Read more

Just moved/got a cat: itchy/burning lungs/throat, shortness of breath, hard to breathe at night- tightness in chest daily. No known allergies. Cause?

Cat allergy: Please get retested for cat allergy. You can do pin prick or the blood method. I suspect it will be positive when you check it. Most doctors would say remove the cat while most patients will reply remove the doctor. If you keep the cat you will need to learn avoidance measures like not sleeping with it in your room and keeping the cat litter and stuff in a separate room of the house. ...Read more

Hydration: You may be partly dehydrated. Drink enough water so that your urine is colorless and do this on a regular basis. It will also help with the dry cough.

Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more
