Frequently Asked Questions

If not treated adequately, lung infection may progress and result in complications. You may have an accumulation of pus beside the lungs resulting in sepsis. The other complications include lung abscess, pleural effusions, and in rare cases, respiratory failure.

There are several causes of lung infection and pneumonia. Some of them include bacteria, viruses, fungus, and bacteria-like organisms, such as mycoplasmas. You may also have aspiration pneumonia (because of inhaling food, saliva, or drinks) or hospital-acquired pneumonia.

Length of recovery depends upon the severity of your condition, type of clinical care, self-care, and response to treatment. The complete recovery may take one week to one month.

Mild cases of pneumonia usually do not require treatment. However, you should consult a doctor to determine the severity of the disease. The doctor may prescribe medicine for chest infection cough treatment.

The progression of pneumonia occurs through several stages. These are congestion (lung swelling), red hepatization (dry lungs), grey hepatization (fluid-like exudate), and resolution (recovery).

The pneumonia treatment cost alters based on the patient's comorbidities, diagnostic tests, medications, and hospital stay. Consult our pulmonologists for more details.

Pneumonia is one of the lung infections that causes symptoms like high fever, chest pain, and breathing illness, this condition needs immediate medical intervention. While, the common cold is a mild viral infection disturbing the upper respiratory tract, causing symptoms such as runny nose, cough, and sore throat.

The direct exposure to rain and cold weather does not cause pneumonia, but the infection is caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi. Also, the cold weather will weaken the immune system and make you more susceptible to respiratory infections. It’s recommended to stay warm in cold weather to maintain your health condition.
