can you help or not ??

Dear customer, it is a pleasure to serve you, I want to tell you that what you are experiencing should be assessed by your emergency physician as soon as possible two weeks with an infectious process in the airways is a major complication in the bronchial tree that should be treated with specific antibiotic treatment such as levofloxacin in combination with corticosteroids that should be prescribed by your doctor in person after a thorough physical examination from the respiratory point of view that includes a pulmonary auscultation with the indication of laboratories and a chest x-ray which helps us determine the level of scope of the infectious process in the respiratory tree added also to the measurement of fundamental vital signs such as oxygen saturation which can be affected producing part of the symptoms you have all this also taking into account that the history of asthma predisposes to an easy complication of respiratory processes such as community-associated pneumonia or diffuse interstitial lung disease which is a truly serious respiratory condition and if not treated in time with the right antibiotics can produce severe complications. I would like you to keep me informed about your health situation; it will be a pleasure for me to assist you and guide you in everything I can.
