I am 17 years old age male my problem is that I have mucous and cold all time of the year and allergies from dust so, I request you to help me please.

You will benefit by identifying cause of your allergy and then planning treatment, mean while avoid dust exposure, tell in your home or office to do wet mopping of floors and surfaces instead of dusting dry. Use face masks in dusty outdoors, regular washing of beddings and pillow covers in hot water and drying in sunlight.

I am 19 years old, I am suffering from allergies from dust since very long time. All consultant are saying save from dust. I want permanent solution.

MS - ENT,MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Kolkata
Dust allergy is partly genetic and partly environmental. Thus it never goes away. With better, less dusty environment  the extent if the problem gets reduced. Medicines help to downregulate the immune response of your body to these environmental allergens. Long term lifestyle  changes with gradually tapering medication  helps to tackle chronic sinus problems.  Start taking Steam inhalation twice a day. *For chronic allergic rhinosinusitis 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. Regular cleaning of AC air filters. Wearing mask while driving 2 wheelers/working in dusty  areas Medical  management  is done for 3 months and then patients  condition is reviewed.  Intermittent treatment is not beneficial  in the long run. Around 30 %of people with allergic rhinitis  will develop Asthma if not treated. But majority of patients with asthma are allergic to dust. Active treatment  of nasal allergy reduces Asthma attacks and medicine requirements. This improve  quality of life.

There is no booster dose. If you have taken two doses of pre exposure prophylaxis then you have to take only three infection instead of five injection in case of dog bite.

Dear lybrate user, dust allergy occurs due to the production of histamine in blood. This production of histamine is provoked by the entry of certain foreign substance in our respiratory system through the air we inhale. However if you are suffering from dust allergy from a considerable prolonged time then you should take the following medications:- 1) 5 drops of homoeopathic pyrogen 1000, thrice daily in empty stomach. 2) 30 drops of homoeopathic mother tincture cassia soph q, thrice daily, after meals, in a glass of water.

Since 5 years I am suffering asthma and allergy, I am aged 53 years old. I am not using cold water, sweets with sugar mix. What I have to do ?

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
An attack may be brought on by contact with substances to which the person is sensitive and emotional or dietary factors should not be overlooked. A sudden change of temperature can bring on an attack and the first attack usually occurs in childhood. Some alleviation of the symptoms may be obtained with the use of the appropriate tissue salts. Which homeopathic medicines are you using? Consult me pvt for detailed treatment. In mean time can use cuprum ars, kali phos 12x.

When steroid tablets are taken for many months or years, harmful side effects are likely and almost inevitable. The list of possible effects is long; it includes mood changes, forgetfulness, hair loss, easy bruising, a tendency toward high blood pressure and diabetes, thinning of the bones (osteoporosis), suppression of the adrenal glands, muscle weakness, weight gain, cataracts, and glaucoma. After being swallowed, these tablets are absorbed from the stomach into the bloodstream and taken not only to the bronchial tubes (to treat asthma) but also to every other part of the body. Their effects are widespread. On the other hand, only miniscule amounts of steroid medication enter the bloodstream after inhaling it. The reasons for this difference include the following. First, steroids used for inhalational treatment of asthma are designed not cross well from the surface of the bronchial tubes into the bloodstream. Somewhat like applying a steroid cream to the skin, they are poorly absorbed from the surface into the blood. Second, only very small amounts of steroid medication are delivered from the inhalers with each dose or" puff" less medicine is needed when it can be directly applied to the affected area. We measure the amounts of steroids inhaled in micrograms, which are units one thousand times smaller than the milligrams by which we measure prednisone or medrol tablets. When breathed in, some steroid medicine remains in the mouth and can be swallowed into the stomach and from there absorbed into the bloodstream. You can minimize any effect from steroids left behind in your mouth in two ways. First, use a spacer tube with your steroid spray. (a spacer can not be used with budesonide [pulmicort] dry powder inhaler.) medicine that would otherwise land on your tongue and mouth stays in the spacer chamber. The part of the spray that passes through the spacer also tends to pass through your mouth and proceed down onto the bronchial tubes. Second, rinse your mouth with water after inhaling the steroid spray. Rinsing removes any medicine residue from your mouth. The portion of the medicine that helps your asthma remains undisturbed on your bronchial tubes. So much for the theory; what about the actual experience with steroids in inhaled form? the current generation of steroid inhalers first began to be used in the mid 1960s. For more than three decades they have been prescribed for millions of people with asthma and other lung diseases worldwide. No serious long-term adverse effects have emerged. For adults, given in the usual doses, they do not cause degeneration (atrophy) of the normal tissues of the respiratory passageway. They do not predispose to lung infections. They do not cause cancer, diabetes, or high blood pressure. We need to look more carefully at the two phrases used above" for adults" and" in the usual doses" children's bones may be sensitive to the very small amounts of steroids that can enter the bloodstream after inhalation. There is currently debate? and considerable on-going research? to determine whether in children inhaled steroids might slow bone growth and reduce a child's ultimate height. Also, when given in very large doses (many puffs from a high-concentration steroid inhaler), the amount of steroid medicine that spills over into the bloodstream can become significant. Although the effect is small, like a very small dose of prednisone, over the years this small effect can potentially add up to serious harmful effects. High doses of inhaled steroids taken for a long time can probably predispose to cataracts, glaucoma, and thinning of the skin and bones. As a result, your doctor will probably only have you take high doses of inhaled steroids as a means to avoid steroid tablets. And he/she will constantly work with you to attempt to reduce the dose of inhaled steroids to a more conventional and safer range. Remember that not taking inhaled steroids for fear of side effects may have real consequences that are far worse than potential effects in the future; namely, asthma symptoms and risk of asthma attacks now. Severe asthma attacks are usually treated with steroid tablets, which all agree have the worst side effects. When steroid tablets are taken for many months or years, harmful side effects are likely and almost inevitable.

DEAR SOWNITH , ASTHMA IS BEST MANAGED BY INHALED MEDICATIONS USING A SPACER DEVICE WITH STRICT ADHERANCE TO THE TREATMENT PLAN AND REGULAR FOLLOW UP.YOU CAN USE A PREVENTER TWICE DAILY WHICH IS A COMBINATION OF BRONCHIAL AIRWAY DIALATOR AND INHALED STERIODS IN A MICRO DOSE AS AN AEROSOL ,AND RELEIVER IS A SHORT ACTING BRONCHIAL AIRWAY DIALATOR DURING AN ACUTE ATTACK. STUDIES HAVE SHOWN MINIMAL DECREASE IN LINEAR GROWTH IN CHILDREN WHO ARE ON LONG TERM USE OF INHALED STEROIDS AT HIGH DOSES ,FEW REPORTS OF SKIN PIGMENTATION,HOARSE VOICE .HOWEVER THE BENEFITS OF INHALED THERAPY FAR OUTWEIGH THE RISKS .THANKYOU

General Physician,
Thanks for your query. As you have understoodthat you have an allergy to dust, it is important that you try to avoid it as much as you can. Meanwhile for the red spot you can take tablet antihistaminic thrice a day and apply betnovate cream. Please feel free to ask me a private question if you need further information.
