Sinusitis is an inflammation, or swelling, of the tissue lining the sinuses. Normally, sinuses are filled with air. But when they become blocked and filled with fluid, germs (bacteria, viruses, and fungi) can grow and cause an infection. Conditions that can cause sinus blockage include the common cold, allergic rhinitis (swelling of the lining of the nose), nasal polyps (small growths in that lining), or a deviated septum (a shift in the nasal cavity). Homoeopathic constitutional treatment will give you permanent cure, your detailed case history will be required.

Hi take ginger tea mixed with 2-3 crushed garlic cloves. Massaging the chest with warm sesame oil mixed with salt helps to loosen the phlegm deposited in the chest, especially, when followed with steam inhalation. Take shwas kuthar ras twice a day. Pranacharya asthamin capsule 1-1 twice a day. And pranacharya shwas vikarasav 2-2 tsf twice a day. 1-1 drop of cow ghee in both nostrils at night time before sleep. Take hot water steam. Take pranacharya allergin capsule 1-1 cap twice a day with warm water.

My son is handicapped and mentally underdeveloped and on wheel chair. He is now 18+. At the age of six months he has uncontrolled seizures and still on anti convultions. He has chest congestions repeatedly. Also his capacity to control urine is decreasing. He has repeated UTI and URI also. How we can permanentally control this. We nebulize him occasionally with duolin and budecort 1 mg. Thanks.

It very tough. Get him vaccinated. Try to boost his immunity by nutritious food. As he is getting repeated infection ,get his IGA,IGG.IGM assessed. Nebulize with duolin only if not asthmatic as budecort will increase chances of pneumonia.

I am suffering from dry cough for the last 2 week and I have chest pain whenever I cough hard. Can you suggest what should be done?

Hello- here are some excellent home remedies for dry cough that will give you instant relief 1 honey why it helps: honey is one of the oldest dry cough home remedies and also one of the commonly used components in cough syrups. It works because of its analgesic properties that eliminate the mucus and soothes your throat. Honey is effective also because it has strong anti-oxidant and anti-microbial properties, both effective for relieving sore throat. 2 turmeric why it helps: the turmeric contains curcumin, the active agent that has strong anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. It is therefore quite effective in treating viral infections like cough and cold. 3 ginger why it helps: ginger is a natural analgesic, and that's why it's a common ingredient in cough syrups and lozenges. It helps soothe irritation and scratchiness caused by sore throat. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and leaves a cleansing effect on your respiratory system. 4 garlic why it helps: garlic has anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties, and due to its active agent called" allicin, it can be one of the most effective home remedies for dry cough. It also boosts your immune system and helps you fight with infections that cause a dry cough. 5 gargle salt water why it helps: salt water helps treat sore throat through osmosis, and it can be a good remedy for a dry cough as well. The idea works because the salt inside the cells of your mucous membranes flows out to balance the salt outside of the cells, and this will reduce swelling. 6 steam why it helps: steam loosens phlegm and mucous and helps improve your condition. You can add specific essential oils and take advantage of their anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory properties. 7 marshmallow root why it helps: thanks to its pain and inflammation relieving properties, marshmallow root can be an effective home remedy for dry cough. It also protects your mucous membrane tissue and saves it from further damage.

Hi, for your nasal allergy issue, you may try the following: (a) use a paediatrics saline nasal spray twice daily (b) identify allergens that trigger allergy in your nose/ allergic rhinitis and avoid them. (c) make sure you keep your nostrils clean. Wash with water daily. (d) take a glass of warm water, to which a tsp of pure honey and third of a lemon are mixed properly, daily morning empty stomach. (e) take half a glass of warm water to which 1/4 tsp freshly ground turmeric and a piece of black pepper (crushed) are mixed properly, post dinner, for 5 days. (f) streamline your diet and lifestyle. Focus on fresh fruits and leafy greens, restrict spicy, oily, fatty and flesh foods. (g) stay relaxed and keep your stress levels low. Daily yoga, pranayam and meditation help de-stress. Please follow steps (d) & (e) as mentioned above only if you have no allergy or other issues taking them. As regards your issue with bone, you may please consult an ent specialist who needs to examine you clinically and advise diagnostics as appropriate to figure out any constitutional deformities or any sort of growth in your nose that is causing problems and then advise accordingly. Hope this help you.

Hello lybrate-user, please use homeopathic medicine to improve your immunity. You can use spongia 30 3 pills each for three nights before bed followed by hyoscyamus 30 the same way after 3 days of spongia. If not relieved contact me. Please try to find out the source of stress in your life. Homeopathy will help you to tackle that stress too. Many times emotional stresses are the maintaining cause of the disorders we have.

I want to ask about my mother. She feels difficulty breathing especially from left nostril. We went to ENT doctor, he put camera in nose and said that mass and bone is fine. The we did MRI of brain, it came out that mucus is build up in sinuses. What to do for it and why it happened?

Ask Free Question
Hi, your mother is having sinusitis. Sinuses are the air spaces in our skull where mucus is secreted. And when we get cold this mucus goes on secreting from the sinuses and it comes out from nose. But if the mucus gets thick and its not drained out then it causes headache and nose obstruction and feeling of breathlessness. Take following medicines nat suph 30 4pills to be sucked thrice a day for 15 days kali bich 200 4pills to be sucked thrice a day for 15 days take plain water steam once a day avoid eating curd, icecreams, pickles, papad, citrus fruits, watermelon, green skin bananas, pineapple, strawberries, custard apple, guavas. Stop using mosquito repellants.

Hello, alpha cf, 2 tabs twice daily. Alpha coff, 2 tsp thrice daily with half cup of hot water. You should do gargles with saline water. You should take steam. You can take 1 tablespoon of honey 1-3 times daily as needed to control coughing. Take immediately before bed if cough is disrupting your sleep. Take care.
