Sneezing is the body's natural response go any dust or strong smell or chemical fumes or similarly change in atmospheric temperatures. By itself, sneezing and cold are not a problem. It's when it happens continuously and severely, causing daily life to be disturbed, that it should be considered a problem. And then too, the problem is not the dust, air, temperature, food or anything else, but the body itself. Our immune system is built in a way to defend our body to be protected from harmful and unnatural exposures. When the body faces such a situation, the immune system is activated and by a series of changes in cell fuction, it deals the problem. But it turns into a problem of a disease when this response nature changes. So when anyone of us go into a dusty place, everyone is bound to sneeze but only persons whose immunity is reduced might continue to sneeze for long after that dust has been cleaned. Conventional medications are aimed at controlling the end effect. For eg, if there is sneezing or runny nose, antihistaminics that control the nature of cells to react is given so when you are on it, you are fine. But once out of it, the problem is back. Homeopathy sees and treats the problem in an altogether different angle. If the problem is with the body's defence system, ie. Immune system - you correct that and automatically the symptom complex falls off. Give it a thought!

Hereditary is the common causative factor for asthma. Number of medicines in homoeopathy; like ars. Alb, blatta orient, mephitis, senega, phosphorus etc. But treatment depends upon the symptoms and severity. Now are you taking any inhaler for this?

What medications are best for the treatment of asthma? What are their side effects.
These can include: short-acting beta agonists, such as albuterol. These medications are the same medications as those in your quick-acting (rescue) inhaler. You may need to use a machine called a nebulizer, which turns the medication into a mist that can be inhaled deep into your lungs. Oral corticosteroids. Taken in pill form, these medications help reduce lung inflammation and get your asthma symptoms under control. For more-severe asthma attacks, corticosteroids can be given intravenously. Ipratropium (atrovent). Ipratropium is sometimes used as a bronchodilator to treat a severe asthma attack, especially if albuterol is not fully effective. Intubation, mechanical ventilation and oxygen. If your asthma attack is life-threatening, your doctor may put a breathing tube down your throat into your upper airway. Using a machine that pumps oxygen into your lungs will help you breathe while your doctor gives you medications to get your asthma under control.

Dear Andhani. I can understand. But you should change your attitude so that these physical issues cannot hamper your education. You are already under treatment. Let your treatment go on. See education as separate. Take care.

Do you have family history of asthama? the right medications for you depend on a number of things, including your age, your symptoms, your breathing triggers and what seems to work best to keep your breathlessness under control. Preventive, long-term control medications reduce the inflammation in your airways that leads to symptoms. Quick-relief inhalers (bronchodilators) quickly open swollen airways that are limiting breathing. In some cases, allergy medications are necessary. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Hello, Some diseases and disorders do run in family! Asthma is one of them. But it's not necessary that the next generation will suffer from same problem for sure, but the chances of acquiring the problem becomes higher. In your case, you would have suffered from asthma in childhood. But, now as you are 23yrs. old, the chances are less! So, just relax, try to focus on improving the immunity, go for a health walk daily in the morning, eat fresh and healthy, avoid junk and unhealthy food, practice yoga, take 6-9hrs. of sufficient sleep, avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension.

Asthmatics should not take long acting beta2 agonists without inhaled steroid as they increase the risk of asthma related deaths.

Allergies can be seasonal (worsening during certain times of the year, such as pollen allergies in the spring) or perennial (occurring year-round). Common allergens include weed or grass pollen, dust mites, animal dander, mold, insect stings and a variety of food types, such as eggs, shellfish, nuts and grains. What really causes allergic reactions is your immune system. It mistakes innocent things in your surroundings for a serious threat and attacks them. The symptoms you get are the result. Your odds of developing an allergy start in your genes. While specific allergies are not inherited, a tendency toward having allergies is. Children with one allergic parent have a 33% chance of developing allergies. With two allergic parents, it's a 70% chance. Even so, the circumstances have to be just right for something to trigger an allergic reaction. Other things may also be involved. For instance, if you come into contact with an allergen when you're weak, such as after a viral infection -- you might be more likely to develop an allergy to it. T begins with exposure. Even if you've been around a trigger (or “allergen,” as your doctor calls it) many times before with no trouble, your body may suddenly see it as an invader. If this happens, your immune system studies the allergen and makes antibodies against it, in case the same situation happens again. Then, the next time you come across that allergen, your immune system takes action. The antibodies recognize it and turn on special cells called mast cells. The mast cells burst open, releasing chemicals such as histamine that cause symptoms such as swelling. Swelling in your nasal passages might cause a runny nose. Swelling in the airways could cause asthma symptoms. Keep in mind that the amount of exposure can make a difference. If you're allergic to strawberries, you may have been able to eat one or two without symptoms. But once you eat three or four, you suddenly break out in hives. There's a tipping point -- or threshold -- for people with allergies. You can handle some exposure, but too much launches an immune system attack. The problem is that you can’t predict how you’ll recover. So if you have a food allergy, you should avoid your trigger foods completely.

Its very complicated mechanism actually and improving immunity can have benefit, if thought simply because at least the infections like viral or bacterial respiratory infections that flare up symptoms of asthma can reduce with a good immunity, but still there are multiple factors that can trigger asthma attack, so this phenomenon is not universal.

It is most likely bronchial asthma due to allergens in the air. She seems to be allergic to the pollens or dust in port blair. Either she has to move out from there to another city like bangalore or take inhalers regularly to control the symptoms. In any case consultation with a good pulmonologist should help.
