Tonsils help body, they are immune glands. Control diet and practise frequent betadine gargles after food. Because food particles stick to back of tonsils and cause frequent attacks.

Dear lybrate user, asthma is preceded by the production of histamines in the blood. Histamine is produced due to the entrance of foreign particles in the body. The triggering cause behind the onset of asthma varies in every patient. A detailed case taking along with some blood test results are required to diagnose the proper underlying cause of asthma. Please conduct a laboratory test of your blood for tc, dc, esr & ige. Revert back with the results & consult me privately via lybrate. In the mean-time you can take homoeopathic mother tincture grindelia robusta q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water.

Dear, I can understand the condition you are facing, I hope you have not taken azithromycin without the consulting the physician, as taking an undue antibiotics creates resistance, cough is of various types and pathology, it can productive or non-productive, and is not stated in your question, please do a chest x-ray and cbc, before that take any anti allergic cough syrup, then you can contact me personally or via lybrate or visit your physician for your examination and reports, to decide the treatment.

Hello, asthma is a common chronic inflammatory disease of the airways. Asthma is characterized by recurrent episodes of wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing. Sputum may be produced from the lung by coughing but is often hard to bring up. During recovery from an attack, it may appear pus-like due to high levels of white blood cells called eosinophils. Symptoms are usually worse at night and in the early morning or in response to exercise or cold air. Some people with asthma rarely experience symptoms, usually in response to triggers, whereas others may have marked and persistent symptoms. Asthma is thought to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Medication: bronchitis/ asthma can be treated well with homoeopathic medicines completely, only need to be regular with the medication and avoid those foods/ things to which you are allergic to for sometime. Keep taking your already on going medication, reduce it gradually and slowly once homoeopathic starts acting and there is stability as steroids do have withdrawal effects if stopped abruptly or suddenly. Take bakson's astha-aid drops/ 10-15 drops in 1/2 cup water/ thrice d day for 4 months. Then give me your feedback.

Ear blockage sensation may be due to eustachian tube catarrh, it usually occurs from Use of extreme hot and extreme cold and maybe associated with sinusitis. You can observe quick relief from homeopathic medicines: (1) Tablet Alpha SH 2 tablets thrice daily for 7 days and 20 Basil leaves twice a day. (2) Use nothing too hot in cold weather and use nothing too chilled in hot weather (3) Maintain regular exercise after some relief in present symptoms in order to avoid recurrent episodes of catarrh.
