Not sure what you: Are really feeling, since we don't feel "itching" in a lung, but on the skin or tissues right under the skin. If you are having sensations on your right chest when you cough, you may think the mucus is coming from the right lung, but there is no way to know that. If you are coughing and bringing up a lot of phlegm, it is likely from smoking, but only an examination can rule out infection etc. ...Read more

Stop vaping: There is very little, if any, regulations or oversight for the ingredients/chemicals being used in electronic cigarette devices. These devices have not been around long enough to determine the potential harms associated with their use. It sounds like you are having a negative reaction to one or more of the components of the vapor, perhaps even an allergy. I recommend that you stop vaping. ...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?

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

A urine pregnancy test gives a very reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex, 1 week after starting a "weird" period, or 1 week after missing a period. ...Read more

Ah, The Price We Pay: Uh, pardon me for asking, but is this unprotected sex? If so, then maybe it's the remains of your partner's, how you say, well, you know what I mean. If not, then maybe it's due to any jelly or lubricant you use, or sensitivity to a condom, or sex toy, or sweat or from the activity itself or maybe a yeast infection or some other sensitivity.

At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
