    Morning. Breathlessness can be caused by respiratory tract infection like pneumonia, tuberculosis. It can also be caused by heart failure, asthma too can cause breathlessness. You should have a chest Xray, an ECG, sputum MCS to help in making a diagnosis. Cheers

    If the wound is too deep, you should see a doctor to have it dressed. You can use Tab Paracetamol 1g thrice daily to relieve the pain.
