Apart from taking symptomatic treatment take a flow of steam (of plain water only) over the forehead through a crescent steam inhaler, eight hourly and few tips for preventing it- avoid any triggering factor, take folic acid regularly, eat a healthy diet, always be stress free, exercise regularly.

My grandmother is suffering from cough from 2 years wet and dry both cough. Her face got red while cough. She wants to get rid of it tell me something please to cure.

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Please do a X-ray of chest first. Also ask her to -- Drink plenty of warm fluids. Drinking warm fluids helps to loosen the secretions in your sinuses so that your mucus flows more freely, making you feel better faster. Studies show that drinking warm fluids relieves cold symptoms such as runny nose, cough, sneezing, sore throat, and fatigue. If this does not helps her get back to me.

My 5-year-old daughter has asthma. What is the effect of using an asthma preventer long-term? I heard that using it for years might cause bone shrinkage. Is it true? Are there any vitamins.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Hello, it is very important issue while treating asthma in children. As you said your daughter is having asthma, she needs lifelong inhaler therapy. But at minimal maintenance dose that will keep her asthma under control. Though steroids have side effects, it is must to give as preventive therapy. Studies show it causes bones to become soft and brittle but only if taken in high doses. And if you do not take steroid inhaler uncontrolled asthma will cause more problems than steroids. So it is better to continue prevent medicine but at lowest possible maintenance dose.

Your X ray is showing fibrotic lesion because the old tuberculosis cavity is healed. If you have taken a full course of ATT you don't have to worry. However consult a chest physician for advice

You have not mentioned any cough, bp position or other problems which may be associated. Primarily start taking warm water with holy basil leaves boiled in it daily twice. If you use milk then please boil one or two pippal in it (long pepper) and drink. Arjunarishta 20 ml bd with equal water daily twice after light meals. Take tarunikusumakar chooran 1 tsp at night daily. After a week only twice in a week. Report after a fortnight.

Do you have pain on cheek bones on pressing it? hot fomentation is really helpful in sinus besides drink fluids, such as water or juice. This will help dilute mucous secretions and promote drainage. Avoid beverages that contain caffeine or alcohol, as they can be dehydrating. Drinking alcohol can also worsen the swelling of the lining of the sinuses and nose. Moisturize your sinus cavities. Drape a towel over your head as you breathe in the vapor from a bowl of medium-hot water. Keep the vapor directed toward your face. Or take a hot shower, breathing in the warm, moist air. This will help ease pain and help mucus drain. Apply warm compresses to your face. Place warm, damp towels around your nose, cheeks and eyes to ease facial pain. Rinse out your nasal passages. Use a specially designed squeeze bottle (sinus rinse, others), saline canister or neti pot to rinse your nasal passages. This home remedy, called nasal lavage, can help clear your sinuses. If you make your own rinse, use water that's contaminant-free distilled, sterile, previously boiled and cooled, or filtered using a filter with an absolute pore size of 1 micron or smaller to make up the irrigation solution. Also be sure to rinse the irrigation device after each use with contaminant-free water, and leave open to air-dry. Sleep with your head elevated. This will help your sinuses drain, reducing congestion. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Hello lybrate user. Coughing is a natural body reflex It keeps the lungs, throat and airway clear of foreign material But constant coughing causes discomfort and caused by infection like common cold. Rx Steam inhalation with halin drops or mint leaves. Dashamoola katutrayadi kwatha 10ml diluting with warm water twice a day before food. Sudarshan vati 2 twice a day after food. Avoid cold heavy fermented oily food stuffs. Avoid exposure to direct wind and sunlight.
