General ill feeling
Shortness of breath
Rapid respiratory rate
The symptoms can range fromnone at all to severe. They may go away without treatment.
If you are allergic to a drug, the doctor may have you stop taking it. (But, never stop a medication withoutconsulting with your doctor first.)
If the condition is due to an infection, you may be treated with an antibiotic or anti-parasitic medication.
Sometime, corticosteroids (powerfulanti-inflammatory medicines) may be needed.
The disease often goes away without treatment. If treatment is needed, the response is usually good. However, relapses can occur.
Causes:Most cases of simple pulmonary eosinophilia are due to an allergic reaction, either from a drug, such as sulfonamide, or infection from a fungus or parasite, including Ascarislumbricoides.
A rare complication of simple pulmonary eosinophilia is a severe type of pneumonia called acute idiopathic eosinophilic pneumonia
Exams and Tests:The health care provider will listen to your chest with a stethoscope. Crackle-like sounds called rales may be heard. Rales suggest inflammation of the lung tissue.
A blood counttest shows increased white blood cells, particularly eosinophils.
Chest x-ray usually shows abnormal shadows called infiltrates. They may disappear with time or reappear in differentareas of the lung.
My opinion about this sickness is that it’s a very dangerous problem in your health if it is not treated fast, because this can cause severeproblems or it can be even fatal. This is not a common disease thanks God but we should still be careful because our respiratory system is one of the most important systems of our body.
