Avatar f tn The repeated respiratory tract infections mainly points towards immunodeficiency (selective IgA deficiency in his case), congenital heart disease and genetic disorder like cystic fibrosis. It is mandatory to rule out the cause and should be treated accordingly by conservative or definitive management. Treatment will be in the form of management of infection involving the lower respiratory tract.
Avatar f tn Streptoccocal infection is the most common bacterial infection and can cause nasal symptoms too. Indoor exposure to black mold can cause upper respiratory tract symptoms such as sore throat and cough with or without wheeze in otherwise healthy people. Ideally you should consult a chest specialist. A comprehensive investigation including CBC, throat swab, allergic tests, X-rays, examination with a scope in throat, spirometry etc is required keeping all the points in mind. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn blood tinged sputum developed for 1 day without any other respiratory tract symptomp.
Avatar f tn Many parasitic infestations and worms increase the eosinophil counts in the blood and thus cause an increased risk of upper respiratory infections. Conditions like tuberculosis, sarcoidosis, asbestosis and silicosis along with pulmonary fibrosis should be ruled out. If there is no fever then chances of allergic reaction, acidity and reflux and high eosinophil count are more. Common allergens causing these symptoms are pollen, mold, dust, pet dander.

Avatar m tn If the mucus feels like its coming from the base of your chest then it suggests that the infection is quiet low down your respiratory tract. If you have been feeling more tired or weak this would be the cause of it because you would be unable to transpport enough oxygen to the rest of your body causing fatigue. If you do have a respiratory infection and you chose not to be treated by a gp then you run the risk of pneumonia which would land you in the hospital eventually.
Avatar m tn i have been coughing since August 2008 till date, have done so many CXR, blood test, sputum test, mantoux, HIV test and nothing was discovered. Recently, i did another CXR and Sputum test and was told again it wasn't TB. I was told to have a report on my CXR which says i should go for a CT Scan because the CXR report shows am having an infection in my right upper lobe opacity which have not done.
Avatar m tn On a broader scale,cough in children can be due to air borne allergies like allergic rhinitis, sinus problems (for example sinus infection),post nasal drip, esophageal reflux of stomach contents,asthma,lower respiratory tract infections and inflammations like bronchitis and bronchiolitis and upper respiratory tract infections. What sort of surgery are the doctors planning to do?It can be a surgery for sinus drainage which can result in dry irritating cough.

1506789 tn?1289768905 it seems you are having upper respiratory tract infection early , probably extending to acute bronchitis. symptoms are not enough to come to a exact diagnosis.
Avatar n tn Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possible causes that may need to be considered include respiratory tract infections, inflammations, neuro-muscular causes etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician or a pulmonologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar f tn Hello, Your symptoms are typical of pharyngitis or upper respiratory tract infection. It is due to pharygitis or sore throat which occurs sometimes in association with sinusitis. It usually occurs when viruses (or sometimes bacteria) from a cold, flu, or sinus infection involve the throat.
Avatar m tn Symptoms of an immunoglobulin deficiency include recurrent infections, especially of the respiratory tract (sinus, lungs, and ears) or gastrointestinal tract, and/or chronic diarrhea.
Avatar f tn If your respiratory tract of sinuses become inflamed, mucous production increases. Typically when it is fully clear as you describe, it is related to allergic rhinitis. This does not sound to be related to cancer in any way. Let us know what your doctor's visit resulted in.
Avatar m tn Hi, Cough and sputum are signs of either common cold or lower respiratory tract infections. In either case, as you have undergone major surgery it is important to get a chest x-ray and examination by your doctor for confirmation of the cause for this. In certain cases, as patient’s are mostly in lying position, chances are high to get fluid accumulation or infection. If it common cold, symptomatic treatment would be enough.

Avatar m tn Hi, How are you? Hemoptysis or coughing up blood from the respiratory tract may be caused by a number of conditions, diseases, and medical tests. This is not the same as bleeding from the mouth, throat, or gastrointestinal tract. Aside from tuberculosis, other conditions leading to this include blood clot in the lung, Bronchiectasis, Bronchitis, vasculitis, pneumonia,laryngitis, and even from irritation of the throat from violent coughing.
