Hi,
How are you? Aside from smoking, asthma, exposure to air pollutants in the home and workplace, genetic factors, and respiratory infections may also be the cause of COPD. That is why it is important to avoid tobacco smoke and removing other air pollutants where you live. Symptoms such as coughing or wheezing can be treated with medication while respiratory infections should be treated with antibiotics, if indicated. Regular follow-up with your doctor is highly recommended. Take care and do keep us posted.
