When I have throat infection then I take azithromycin tablet is it proper treatment or not?

When I have throat infection then I take azithromycin tablet is it proper treatment or not?
Yes you can take this medicine for three days. But you can save your throat from infection. When you feel that your throat is being infected start gargles after every meal with fresh water and through the cough or toxin of your throat outside. Avoid oily spicy food for three days. Take boiled milk adding turmeric powder with sugar and 10 drops of pure ghee in one cup milk and drink it for three days. You will be cured.

Hello if you really have allergic phlegm then a course of anti allergen will be helpful for you. However it is necessary to determine if the reason is indeed allergic, specially since you are saying that you have this problem for a long time now.

Thanks for your query. Antibiotic become necessary only when infection flares up. When you have infection there is no other substitute for an antibiotic. Please provide details about what symptomes you are having at present and I can advise accordingly. Please feel free to ask a private question.

You must examine yourself with the doctor for the possibility of depression. Stress is definitely a factor but is it to do with depression? You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Hye, Thanks for the query. Gaining weight requires you to eat more calories than you burn. Although fried or sugary foods are calorie dense, eating them exclusively won’t provide enough nutrition to keep you energetic and healthy. Eating several meals and snacks throughout the day and including nutritious, calorie-dense food will help you gain weight healthfully. Weight gain depends primarily on your genetics, age, weight and activity level. To gain weight, you need to eat more calories than you burn. If you’re not used to eating large quantities of food at one time, you may find it difficult to fit all of your calories into three meals per day. Eating nutritious, calorie-dense foods every two to three hours will help you get your calories in without making you overly full and sluggish. If you tend to forget to eat or are always on the go, bring calorie-dense snacks such as eggs, mixed nuts, fruits and dairy. Nutritious, calorie-dense foods provide essential vitamins and minerals, which promote good health and energy. Adding ghee and cream to foods adds additional calories for very little extra physical bulk. Fruit juice, masala milk provides crucial nutrients. Meal-replacement shakes and protein powder sound like good options but also remember that unless your diet is not planned sadly they won't help.

Hello. The following are the causes for sensation of lump in throat: Reflux may cause this muscle to tighten up in order to prevent acid (and even non-acid mucus reflux) from the stomach from spilling up into the voicebox and mouth. Heartburn is NOT usually present, though treatment with anti-reflux medications is the same. Read more about reflux here. Increased stress may cause this muscle to constrict more strongly, exactly like the lump that forms in the throat when a person is trying to hold back from crying while watching a very sad movie. Indeed, we see quite a few patients with globus who are in the middle of a divorce, students in the middle of final exams, death in the family, workplace strife (hate the boss or co-worker), etc. Reflux and stress are by far the most common causes of globus. Rarely, cricopharyngeal muscle or esophageal pathology may also cause this sensation when the muscle scars, hypertrophies, or becomes chronically spastic or the lining of the esophagus develops a ring, shelf, or stricture. Even more rarely, a Zenker's Diverticulum or eosinophilic esophagitis may be present. A mucosal lesion may cause this sensation. Such lesions may be due to trauma (swallowing a small piece of bone) or ulcer ("canker" sore of the throat). In this particular scenario, the sensation is described as slightly off to one side and the size of a peanut. Lastly, a mass of some kind can cause this sensation. Such masses may include cancer, cysts, granulomas, large thyroid, etc. Keep in mind, however, that though people think their thyroid may be causing their symptoms of globus, only very RARELY is this the case. The only times when the thyroid may be a factor is when it gets so big to the point it becomes clearly obvious (think an orange-sized mass growing out from the neck), or if the thyroid encircles the esophagus which is also exceedingly rare. In rare cases, the globus sensation is nothing physical at all, but a type of neuropathy (link). Management: - Do stress-relieving exercises like Anulom-Vilum, Pranayam, etc. - Take healthy food. - Drink lots of water. - Think positive Take homoeopathic Rx- Natrum Mur. 200/ one dose daily for 7 days. Revert me back.

I hav bn suffering frm sinusitis since last 20 yrs, is dere any medicine which can completely free me frm this stupid sinusitis?

MS - ENT,MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Kolkata
Hi if you have been suffering  from 6 years it's likely you have chronic sinusitis  which may also be allergic . Get a CT PNS done. Or if you have one  done share the CT /Xray Long term lifestyle  changes with gradually tapering medication  helps to tackle chronic sinus problems.  Start taking Steam inhalation twice a day. *For chronic sinusitis you will need to take a long term course of antibiotics  together  with Nasal sprays . *You will need to avoid dusty environment  and dust mites, animal dander etc. Medical  management  is done for 3 months and then your condition is reviewed.  Intermittent treatment is not beneficial  in the long run. Chronic sinusitis is a condition  that develops due to persistent  infection or allergy in your sinuses. We need to improve the drainage of the sinus cavity by steam inhalation  .Medicines like Monteleukast with levocetirizine  help to decrease the tissue response to dust and allergy. They help in decreasing the inflammatory  changes due to allergic stimuli. Togerher with this the nasal sprays will help improve locally the Nasal  blockage. A disciplined medical therapy will help you live better. But incomplete treatment leads to polyps, Pansinusitus,complications  and poor quality of life. Investigations : CTPNS CBC with ESR &AEC PPBS FT3/FT4/TSH These tests will help us have an idea about your general immune status and check for any problems you may have. Treatment : Start Steam inhalation  (mandatory  )twice a day &Start have plenty of fruits and vegetables  in your diet. A course of vitamin B complex and C (no harm in continuing this if you can't have a balanced diet due to any reason) Add a probiotic supplement to your regular meals. Have sleep for atleast 7 to 8 hours. Exercise atleast for 30 minutes  every day. If you work in dusty environment   wear a mask. Air conditioned rooms the air filters should be ideally washed every week. The dust trappers in AC UNIT spread the germs very rapidly. If you are unable to ensure regular cleaning of AIR conditioners atleast try not to sit directly in front  of them. While working in the computer try to tilt  the screen to avoid glare .Take 5 min break every half an hour. Drink Plenty of water. Avoid smoking and secondary smoke. You can share your reports on Lybrate (no charge )as you get them done. Review with me after 10 days of Antibiotic and I will start you on long term medicines. Kindly also let me know any other medical  issues you may have. Kindly let me know about your workplace and living environment  (Air pollution level, general cleanliness. Then I can help you even more Unfortunately Lybrate doesn't allow prescription of medicines in open forum CT PNS and nasal endoscopy+your symptoms helps us decide surgical course of treatment.
