E-cigs and vaping are a common sight in the United States, but some doctors say it is causing health issues people may not know about.
Recently, in Pennsylvania an 18-year-old girl developed wet lung after starting to vape.
Dr. Charles Porterfield, a Pulmonologist in Beckley, said wet lung is a reaction where fluid can be found in the lung.
“Wet lung is a general term that refers to a lung reaction, an immunal reaction where the lung secretes fluid,” Porterfield said.
Dr. Porterfield also said symptoms for wet lung, include shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing, and in rare cases, coughing up blood. He said the best way to avoid the condition is to just stop vaping all together.
