In addition, lung infection can be subtle, with presentation as a small focus of infection or a rather very faint infection area that can be very difficult to detect with xray alone. A ct study may be useful if necessary. ...Read more

Chymoral Forte, to my knowledge, is chymotrypsin & trypsin, which are digestive enzymes. Unless there is some nutritional issue leading to swelling (protein deficiency?), I am not sure how the thiamine & vitamin supplements will help. Consider HealthTap Prime. ...Read more
