I have asthma, What medications are best for the treatment of asthma? What are their side effects?

MD - Pulmonary Medicine, DNB, DAA, MNAMS
Pulmonologist, Navi Mumbai
Inhalers or dry powder devices for asthma help control lung inflammation with side effects of tablets. Very few minimal side effects like oral thrush may come up if improperly taken inhalers. Education of asthma will bring greater benefit. Please see certified asthma specialists.

Common Myths About Allergy and Asthma

DAA, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS, DMRD
Pediatrician, Mumbai

Common Myths about Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are very common in India and the Asian subcontinent. Allergies have a significant impact on quality of life.

Myth 1 Allergy-related diseases are uncommon

Reality: Incidence of allergy-related diseases have doubled in the past few decades.

1 in 3 people suffers allergies at some time in their life.
1 in 10 people are suffering from Asthma.
1 in 100 has life threatening allergy known as anaphylaxis.

Myth 2 Allergies are harmless

Reality: Allergies negatively impact the quality of life for example tiredness, irritability, poor quality of sleep, poor scholastic performance in children.

Allergies to food, drugs and insect sting can cause a severe systemic reaction that can lead to death.

Myth 3 Moving to another place can cure Allergies

Reality: Moving away from the source of allergen may improve your allergy symptoms. But these allergy symptoms reappear after some time as allergic peoples prone to develop new allergies.

Myth 4 All Children grow out of their Asthma

Reality: Asthma can persist; some children have asthma symptoms that improve or disappear during adolescence, whereas other will worsen. Severe or severe asthma tend to remain much the same as an adult.

Myth 5 Allergy drugs are dangerous and make you drowsy

Reality: Non-drowsy antihistamines are readily available, rarely make people drowsy.

Myth 6 Damp houses are just as healthy as dry houses

Reality: Damp houses have higher mould content than dry homes and indoor mould is a common cause of perennial allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, bronchitis as well as asthma.

Myth 7 Colours and preservatives are a common cause of asthma

Reality: preservatives like sodium metabisulfite (220,221,222) in wine,dried fruits,vinegar,grapes and some fruit salad can worsen,but do not cause asthma. Inhalation of small amount sulphur dioxide may cause a reflex contraction of your airways. Monosodium glutamate may trigger asthma in some people ,but researchers have shown that it is relatively a rare problem

I have a dry cough due to smoking. Im trying to stop smoking but now helpless. My cough is from almost 15days im really worry but cant do anything and cant even tell anyone cos people can only suggest to stop smoking. *worried*

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Of course you need to stop smoking. Signs like these are an early warning that you are smoking too much. If you wait for a full-fledged attack of some disease, then you are like most addicts who need to 'Hit Rock Bottom', that it, to reach the worst condition for you to need to stop. Then you are on a reactive mode: heed the warning and act on it fast. Everyone who wishes you well will tell you to quit! Smoking directly attacks the respiratory apparatus. You can ill-afford to continue smoking unless you want to kill yourself early and in a most miserable way! You must seriously take a call and quit smoking now. Here’s how you can go about it: The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. Tobacco tar smears the lung surface and causes big patches over time to become dysfunctional. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

DAA, DNB
Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I understand your concerns. Copd is a chronic disease caused due to smoking, pollution, firewood cooking etc. First for diagnosis one needs to undergo pulmonary function test which is needed for the diagnosis and treatment of the disease. Generally copd patients benefit by a combination inhaler. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

My husband age 59, known case of congenital heart disease, coarctation of aorta operated 20 years back, now have asthma, now facing problem of pulmonary hypertension any new researches in this cases.

DM Cardiology
Cardiologist, Delhi
Pulmonary hypertension occurs, when the pressure of lungs increase. Shortness of breath with exertion is the main symptom. This happens because the right ventricle can't force enough blood through the lungs to furnish enough oxygen. Chest pain often occurs. Fainting or loss of consciousness happens when the brain doesn't get enough oxygen. If you exert yourself, the need for oxygen may cause you to faint. Symptoms may become worse over time. How is it diagnosed? at your physical exam your doctor will ask you to describe your symptoms and other things about your health, especially what medications and drugs you have been taking. The symptoms already listed, especially when present in a young woman, make pph one possibility. If your doctor suspects pph, you will have an electrocardiogram, a procedure that records the electrical activity of your heart. Your electrocardiogram may show thickening of the muscle of the right ventricle. A chest x- ray may show evidence of decreased blood flow in the lungs. An echocardiogram, a test that uses ultrasound waves to create a picture of the heart, shows thickening of the right ventricle when pph is a cause of symptoms. The ultrasound waves can also make a reasonable measurement of the blood pressure in the arteries in the lungs. Sometimes a heart catheterization is needed to measure the pressure in the blood vessels in the lungs directly. Your health care provider will also need to test for other causes of high blood pressure in the lungs, such as blood clots in the lungs, diseases of the lung tissue, and liver diseases. How is it treated? pph used to be untreatable and always fatal, but current treatments seem to prolong survival. Blood thinners (anticoagulants) are usually used to prevent small blood clots that might further block blood flow through the lungs. The response to treatment varies from person to person. Some people benefit from the use of drugs called calcium antagonists. These drugs improve symptoms but aren't a cure. They expand (dilate) blood vessels in the lungs and improve blood flow. Prostacyclin, a normally occurring body hormone, may be given through a vein with the help of a special pump. Prostacyclin and a combination mixture of air and nitric oxide both may improve symptoms temporarily. In unusual cases people may be offered a heart-lung transplant.

Allergy is a common problem nowadays. Avoid dust exposure by covering your nose and mouth with a mask whenever you go out. Avoid cold exposure by proper sweaters, mufflers, socks in this cold weather. Apart from this you wil require anti allergics for an acute problem.

Hair fall is mainly due to protein deficiency and other nutritional deficiencies and regarding sinusits main symptoms for maxillary sinusitis are thick nasal discharge, headache, watering eyes, forehead pain, recurrent infection of nose and mouth, post nasal drip, sinusitis, is nothing but a physiological disorder of nose which led by malfunctioning of aerodynamics of nose (temporary sinusitis, secondly it is because of repeated infections of the sinus (permanent sinusitis) sinuses regulations and air conditioning of the air which we breathe and to get the benefit of above we must have normal, well sized opened sinusitis and hence nose breathing is required, those who breathe from mouth, they have tendency to get more throat and lungs infections. Recurrent sinus infection, pollution, poor diet, spicy food, long term steam inhalation from nose, and allergies leads to thick discharge from nose. This thick mucus if stays in the sinuses, it leads to irritation of the sinus skin which is mucosa and this go on growing hence leads to permanent sinusitis this extra growth is called nasal polyps this is where patient needs surgical correction. If patient comes to nose surgeon at right time, doctor can revert his/her symptoms and surgery can be abandoned. Sinusitis if patient does not take serious steps to correct might lead to cardiac symptoms, lung diseases, etc. Once there are nasal polyps you have to go for surgery immediately.
