How to get relief from asthma, she having a breath problem, please provide a solution to get relief from it.

DAA, DNB
Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I understand your concerns. Asthma is chronic and a common problem causing symptoms. You will need to undergo a detailed examination and investigations like chest x ray to look for infection. If it's normal then you will need to undergo pulmonary function test which is needed for diagnosis and also to assess severity of asthma based on which treatemnt can be started. Consult a pulmonologist for the same. Thanks.

I wife is suffering from asthma since childhood. Now she is pregnant. So suggest me what should do for her best health.
Mr. Lybrate user, in this period, better to avoid allopathic medicnal usage [preferably internal}unless with your concern gynaecologist's suggestion. As you r saying she is suffering from her childhood, now immediately she can not get releif but by taking homeo, parallally, she will be better in recurrence, frequency, intensity.& there will not be any side effects by taking homeo, try few home remedies, like by observing what kind of weather or food, or other factors that cause her to get, avoid those, like if exposure to cold weather, then avoid her to get exposed to that weather, or food, etc, let her take proper diet/sleep, milk with dry ginger powder[boiled], daily, will help to reduce the episodes, plenty of fruits. Sprouts, more water, green leafy veg, etc. Let her practice pranayama daily twice or thrice, morning after getting up, & at night, before going to bed, & meanwhile, whenever she feels free. If possible, try to learn breathing exercises, under art of living/isha foundation etc, wll improve her health, & reduce the asthamtic attacks, which also will help for foetal development too.

Doctor of Medicine
Pulmonologist,
As long as you don't give proper attention and get that allergy out from the body. You will suffer. But there is a way out. Not for all but for majority can be relieved. Hello! you can be free from asthma suffering. Lot of people who have allergies tend to suffer continuously or intermittently. Unless you remove allergies from body to enter* you will keep suffering from different kinds of allergies. Lungs: allergies cause asthma. Skin: rashes & itching nose & sinus: cold & sneezing, headache. Stomach: pain abdomen or gastritis. Best way to come out of any kind of allergies is first do allergy screening test and then only start medications. Or else the medicines will not work effectively as allergen exposer is not taken care.

She has been suffering from temporary tonsils. Wat r the suitable foods she is supposed to take n please let me know wat causes this. How can this be avoided?

DORL, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Faridabad
First thing you should get thyroid testing done, and than you may need to hydrate up your body because any symptoms of throat comes with symptoms of nose also dear the symptoms you are getting are due to dryness of the mouth, this is because of lack of mucus in the mouth which is protective layer of our mouth, and is being produced in the mouth by glands which will be helped by good and healthy blood supply to the glands, blood with good blood cells will take oxygen to the gland and gland works, they require oxygen in ample of amount, so if you do not take iron diet on daily basis than this will lead to less of mucus production and hence lead to dryness and thick mucus problem, this thick mucus leads to irritation in mouth hence leads to itching in the mouth, start taking good iron diet on daily basis, and shakes, avoid salty and spicy food.

What is Allergic Asthma?

B.A, Fellowship in Applied Nutrition , PG Diploma in Dietetics and Nutrition, Certified Diabetes Educator
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Gurgaon
What is Allergic Asthma?

Allergic asthma is the condition in which the symptoms of an asthmatic attack appear after exposure to certain allergens. 90% of the cases of asthma in children are allergy driven, while in adults, the percentage is said to be around 50%.

An allergy happens when an individual's immune system exhibits massive reaction or fights vigorously against substances like pollen, dust, animal dander or certain other minute particles which are actually not harmful to the body but are considered so by the immune system.

Symptomatic changes in cases of allergic asthma:

If the symptoms of an asthma attack occur only when you are subjected to these triggers or irritant particles, your case is allergy driven. 

  • In such cases, the airway reacts aggressively to the entry of such allergens.
  • The airway muscles tighten up and inflammation is observed.
  • Breathing becomes painful and compromised, and mucus accumulation sets in very quickly.
  • Coughing is a common phenomenon, as the body tries to expel the mucus accumulated.

The allergens mentioned above are not the only triggering agents. Basically, anything that causes irritation could trigger an allergy and an asthmatic attack thereafter. Symptoms in the case of allergy driven asthma are more or less the same as seen in other asthmatic cases.

Confirming the cause of asthma as allergic or not:

The doctor would give you a much better clarification on whether you're asthma is allergy driven or not. There are pretty much two ways to decipher the same:

  • One is to administer a tiny amount of allergen to the skin and making a note of the reaction to that. Whether the reaction is a normal one or an aggressive one would tell if an individual has an allergy or not.
  • Specific IgE test may be done to confirm the cause, or to test the presence of an allergic reaction in the individual.


All your queries pertaining to allergic asthma and asthma, in general, are more than welcome.
