Cough + basal crackles in right lung. Is this the same as congestion? Please list causes? Thanks.

Fluid. Crackles are an exam finding that can only be heard with a stethoscope, and typically indicate fluid buildup within the lung tissue. The two most common causes are pulmonary edema (from heart failure) and pneumonia.
Fluid. Fluid in the lungs sounds like crackles through a stethescope. First.See your primary care provider to be sure of the proper diagnosis. Then be sure to take prescription exactly as prescribed.
