Have rattling in lung, breathlessness, and cold. Have aspirated some balsamic vinegar. What is the cause?

I am a very healthy person and I had a small episode last week where I aspirated some balsamic vinegar. I couldn't breathe for a short while and then finally was able to get a breath. It is now 6 days later and I have a rattling noise in my right lung. I also have normal cold symptoms. Do you think the rattling that I am experiencing could be related to this episode?

yeah may be the sound is related to that episode as you aspirated and there is chance of infection with that so you are experiencing such type of need to take nebulisation and have a chest xray done to fibd out the cause.use karvol capsules for cold they may be used in steaming and also you can take it on your napkin to get some relaxation from that cold those capsules are not for oral use.Thank you.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

There is an old expression, “Post hoc ergo propter hoc”, meaning ‘after this, therefore because of this’ / It is natural to associate things with the immediate past.
You should see a doctor / get yourself examined / have some basic investigations, like chest X-ray and lung function (spirometry) to exclude chemical pneumonia, asthmatic bronchitis and so on....
It may end up as not significant and co-incidental ‘flu’ – all the same, it is wiser to be safe than sorry...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
