My sister is a 24 year old. It happened for her to stay in hostel .after few days her friend is diagnosed with tuberculosis. So are there any chances of my sister being affected, though she has no symptoms now. Please advise.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
around 40 percent of Indian population is carrying TB infection but only few get disease with this infection and these 40% population have a life time risk of about 10 % to get this disease, so even if she has been exposed to TB patient and has got the infection then also to become diseased the chances are only 10% in life time. so donot worry and tell her to stay happy. but whenever some one gets TB symptoms the patient should get it checked so that disease can be treated at an early stage

How to Manage if Your Child Is Suffering From Asthma

Multi Speciality Clinic
Multi Speciality, Pune
How to Manage if Your Child Is Suffering From Asthma

Asthma is a condition that can flare up anytime; be it at your child's soccer practice or during the middle of the night. Whenever the condition sets in, it leads to your child struggling for breath. For a parent to witness this situation can be hard; but you should know the techniques to keep the situation under control.

Here are a few tips on how to manage the situation:

1. Find out the triggers in your home: Asthma is triggered due to substances that your child may be allergic to. Examples are cigarette smoke, fur of pets and dust. If possible, keep your child away from the known triggers so that the condition does not flare up again.

2. Keep records of the following: It is good to have an action plan ready for your child when the bouts of asthma strike. When you visit the doctor to discuss about your child's condition then make sure that you have these records at hand.

  • The triggers that caused the bout of asthma
  • How many times did your child have wheezing episodes?
  • The number of times your child has been admitted for the same reason
  • The medications that your child is currently taking, dosage and/or whether they have been changed
  • How often does he/she need medications if he/she has acute symptoms?

3. Knowledge of the test your child may require: Asthma control test is a type of test that allows parents and children to grade asthma symptoms without a doctor. A pulmonary function test is used to detect the capacity of the lungs and flow of air.

4. See how your child responds to the treatments: You should consider changing the treatments for your child if he/she has recurrent symptoms of asthma attack and require frequent visits to the Emergency Room even after taking medications for an extended duration.

5. Long term treatment plans require patience: Any asthma treatment plan requires patience as they might not immediately cure symptoms.

One of my friend who's name is Chiku suffered on dry cough, what medicine to give rescue him.

MBBS, MD, Fellowship in Intergrative medicine
Integrated Medicine Specialist, Kochi
Dry cough could be due to several reasons allergy, chest infections, throat infections, medicines etc. You have to treat the cause. Take symptomatic treatment like warm fluids, saline gargle, not drinking or eating any thing cold if there is throat pain use some throat lozenges and use suppressant cough syrup available over the counter. If he is not responding after 3 days he might have to see the Dr. Who will decide how to proceed further.

Hello doc. I recently completed my 18 month chest and abdominal tuberculosis treatment. Can I take beer now?

MD - Pulmonary Medicine, MBBS
Pulmonologist, Gurgaon
Occasional beer intake should not be a concern. But I would personally recommend you not to take any alcoholic beverages as one year post abdominal tb you just need to concentrate on building your nutrition by adequate protein intake.

I am a 16 years old guy I have sinus from last 2 years. I want a quick medicine for it. So plzzz provide me that medicine as earliest as possible. My name is Pranay kadam.

B H M S, MD
Homeopath, Thrissur
Sinusitis is a chronic disease which has got a definite cause and its to inform you that it cannot be treated quick. The causes of sinusitis are multiple. It may be allergic. It may be due to dns or deviated nasal septum etc. So go for a ent consultation to know the cause. In homoeopathy we use to go for the proneness of some individuals to get it and this proneness has to be treated after assessing your genetic make up which will cure your disease.

If xray chest is normal, then only saline gargles and voice rest can help. It will take some time to settle down.

Sir, My age 23y suffering from persistent headache and cough with minor fever due to sinus problem from almost 8+ years. I was treated by lots of antibiotics, decongestant, nasal spray but all gone in vain. My CT PNS showed blockage of bilateral infundibulum and maxillary antrum due to large bilateral haller cells And mild polypoidal mucosal thickening in both maxillary sinuses. Which I think allergic and fungal. In addition there is thickening of both inferior nasal turbinates. I lost somewhat food taste and severe allergy to foods. I feel like some solid in my sinuses and severe tightness below nose which make my breathing difficult and painful. I want sinus surgery done for this please help me and also tell the cost. Thank You.

Weather change and anatomical variation of the nose leads to change in the aerodynamics of the nose hence leads to watery nose this most of the time is over snsitivity on nose to outer environment, and we consider this as allergy all the time. Sinus is a normal roomy structure around nasal cavity its infection called sinusitis, if a person suffering from nasal obstruction along with sinusits and mild to moderate nasal allergies it means most probably he is suffering from dns (deviated nasal septum. Nasal obstruction is because of the deviated portion of the nasal septum (this is the bony partition of the nose cavity. Allergies are because of the hampered muco-ciliary mechanism (normally mucus is produced in the nose to moisten our nose cavity, oral cavity, and help food bolus to move downward, this mucus is basically moves on the cilia of the nasal mucosa) this mechanism gets hampered and mucus start accumulating in the nose and sinus cavity which is why thick mucus comes from nose in patients of nose obstruction and person develops sinusiits. When a surgeon removes the nasal septum deviation has not been removed properly the symptoms persists, and patient thinks that the nose bone has again regrown. It is not because of regrowth but because of half surgery done or due to the non removal of the deviation (reason can be many) nowadays nasal septal deviation can be removed endoscopically. Everything is explained in this, I hope this will benefit you.

Homeopath,
Dear Mr Sandip....in case of acute attack of Asthma you must use Asthalin inhaler......At the same time I would advise to conduct a laboratory diagnosis of your blood for TC,DC, ESR.....in major cases of asthma it is seen that the Eosinophil level of blood remains elevated.....If your Eosinophil level reveals to be higher than normal level then you could take Homoeopathic PYROGEN 1M, 5 drops thrice daily in empty stomach.
