History and results suggest some kind of acute chest infection. Recurrent infections are common as same chest infection can be caused by different viruses. As children lack immunity, they have infections more commonly than adults till the immune system is ready. If the previous infection cleared completely before the second infection, it is most likely a viral infection. It is better to consult a pediatrician to listen to chest.

Avoid fatty foods or drinks with caffeine -Treatment: A cold usually lasts for a week or two. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn't need medical treatment. -Gargle to keep from getting a sore throat.Take only lukewarm water to drink during the day -Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation. -Tablet nasorest-p once/twice daily may ease breathing. -Do steam inhalation once or twice daily.

I suffer from asthma and I used asthma inhaler so any medicine to cure this sickness. What should I do to cure this.
Home remedy.=1. Ginger: ginger has so many benefits on your heath and body. It is equally effective against asthmatic treatments. Make a juice with equal quantities of ginger, pomegranate, and honey. Consume it 2-3 times a day for effective results. Else, take one tbsp of ginger juice. Mix it up with a tbsp of honey and two tbsp of dried fenugreek seeds. Soak it overnight and consume it every morning to detoxify your lungs. 2. Soup: take a radish and blend it to obtain a juice from it. Mix it with some honey and lemon juice. Consume it as it will help in clearing up your respiratory track, which will make it easier for you to breathe.

I am suffering from sinusitis. And headache. headache from from since 2-3 year. Can you suggest what should be don.
Hi  If you are  having a sinus  problems for so long we have to rule out Allergic  Rhinitis and sinusitis.  Get a CT PNS done. Or if you have one  done share the CT. 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 patients  condition is reviewed.  Intermittent treatment is not beneficial  in the long run. If headache due to sinusitis it will get better. Do a eye refraction to check eyesight. Hope this helps.

When to go for a Tonsil Surgery?

MS - ENT, DNB (ENT)
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
When to go for a Tonsil Surgery?

Tonsillitis is an affliction that plagues a fair share of people. Located at the back of your throat, tonsils are essentially two small glands, which contain white blood cells to defend your body against infection. However, on account of germ attacks, sometimes the tonsils get infected and this results in the swelling of the tonsil glands, which in turn causes sore throat and aligned maladies. 

Tonsillitis may be cured through surgical procedures. However, an isolated case of the inflammation of the tonsils need not warrant a surgery. Tonsillectomy or the surgical method of curing tonsillitis is only recommended for extreme cases of tonsillitis. Only the frequent sufferers of tonsillitis take recourse to tonsillectomy for a durable and effective solution. Surgeries are only done on those who have had at least seven bouts of strep throats within a span of a year. 

Tonsillectomies essentially involve surgical removal of the tonsils either using a scalpel or burning the tissues in the tonsils with the use of ultrasound vibrations. Usually performed under anesthesia, it is a fairly painless and a non-hazardous procedure. Tonsillectomies generally last for about an hour. However, the recovery period sometimes entail a few physical discomforts. Sore throat, difficulty in swallowing, pain in the jaws and ears are common symptoms of post tonsillectomy conditions. While there are palliative medicines available in the markets, adequate rest and proper diet speeds up the recovery. 

Tonsillectomy generally leaves no side effects and the success rate of this surgery is quite heartening. Tonsillectomy has also known to cure several other associated health problems in the likes of breathing troubles, sleep apnea, bleeding of the tonsil glands or cancerous developments in the tonsil glands. That aside, tonsillectomy is only performed on acute cases of tonsillitis and often regarded as the lender of last resort when medicines stop according any relief to the patient.

Hi, I'm an asthma patient since childhood and still I'm having problems related to breath & all, I'm taking asthalin Inhaler on daily basis (around 7-8 doses everyday whenever I feel chest wheezing or breathing problem) I want to ask that will asthma can be cure at this age (24), What should I do because I think somewhere I'm not taking proper care of myself. Please suggest Thanks.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
Asthma although can occur in any age but if it has started in childhood, by the age child reaches 15 years many will get cured, as the lung tissue also grows and body's immunity status also develops, but if it has continued till adulthood then it has lesser chances of complete cure. At the best it can be well controlled. Inhalers are the best medicine for asthma control, and there are really better salts available than asthalin (salbutamol), their use depending upon the severity of asthma. Its important to have a perfect control over asthma to prevent permanent damage it may do over lungs if it is not well controlled.

He has asthma. He is suffering from serious breathing problem. Suggest best medicine.

Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Serious breathing problem suggests an exacerbation of asthma or poorly controlled asthma. Steroids are the best drugs to control the inflammation and bronchodilators to prevent chest tightness and wheezing. Oral steroids and nebulization with duolin are to be used for one week, followed by a combination of inhalational steroid and bronchodilators are to be used for maintenance.
