Hello. My friend is suffering from pneumonia and she had cough last week and her health is getting weaker day by day what should her parents do to cure cough.

1 Doctor Answered
She should take proper rest, adequate hydration and a balanced diet in small quantities increasing the number of meals in a day. Pneumonia gets cured by using proper antibiotics, but if the symptoms persist beyond 2 weeks then testing for tuberculosis is also recommended.
