According to a girl, her lungs were infected with Chlamydia pneumoniae

.

TikTok is that girl 

She has been privatized after nearly 2 million views of the footage of her complaint. In it, she detailed the detailed process of correct diagnosis. She said that she suffered from fever and pneumonia for nearly two weeks before the doctor was able to find out the problem.

"So, please put your finger down, if, um, in October you got pneumonia super sick, super sick, and you try to tell your family, you think it's not just that...well, you try to tell pneumonia patients. Doctors and hospitals Say, it's more than that-you have a fever for nearly 13 days," she said, according to BuzzFeed. "No one believes you, they just have been testing your COVID, testing your antibodies, testing your hepatitis, almost everything-everything is negative. In the end, it came back because smoking and smoking were bad. Che, there is a Chlamydia infection in the lungs."

She claimed in the post comments that she was smoking the nicotine vape cartridge, and the doctor confirmed that the infection came from the cartridge. Although the product the user inhaled did not contain THC, health officials warned that withdrawing THC cartridges could cause severe lung damage. Among a large number of diseases related to e-cigarettes, doctors came up with the name of a problem they encountered: lung damage (or EVALI) associated with the use of e-cigarettes or e-cigarette products.

"The latest national and state survey results indicate that products containing THC, especially those obtained from the street or other informal channels (eg, friends, family, illegal traders), are associated with most cases and are Played a major role in the outbreak, the CDC wrote in a statement on the case.

In addition to the problem of THC cartridges,

 Vitamin E oil and other substances found in vape cartridges can accumulate in the lungs. However, these hypotheses have not been confirmed beyond the anecdotes of doctors. 

The treatment of pulmonary chlamydia is the same as other forms of chlamydia, and several rounds of antibiotics and steroids are used. Although the risk of serious cases is low, a pulmonologist told Buzzfeed that there are ways to minimize the risk.

Dr. Luis Chug said: "What I want to say is that if you want to atomize, please only buy pens and cartridges from reputable sources-don't share pens with anyone else, especially during the current COVID-19 pandemic. "
