Your medicine in your sentences only, because due to smoking you have problem & in another sentence you have dust allergy & for that you took medicine. If you can't stop smoking it means medicine will be made complication, smoke means dust particles which is causative for your suffering you have to stop then only any medicine will be applicable. If you can't stop smoking at least stop all medicine this will not get complication & side effect. Other than all this you may consult me for any clarification & treatment.

Sore Throat in Children

When should I call the doctor about my child’s sore throat? — Sore throat is a common problem in children. It usually gets better on its own. But sore throat can sometimes be serious.

Call your child’s doctor or nurse if your child has a sore throat and:

●Has a fever of at least 101°F or 38.4°C

●Doesn’t want to eat or drink anything

Call for an ambulance (in the US and Canada, dial 9-1-1) or take your child to the emergency room if your child:

●Has trouble breathing or swallowing

●Is drooling much more than usual

●Has a stiff or swollen neck

What causes sore throat? — Sore throat is usually caused by an infection. Two types of germs can cause the infection: viruses and bacteria. Children spread germs easily because they often touch each other, share toys, and put things in their mouths.

Children who have a sore throat caused by a virus do not usually need to see a doctor or nurse. Children who have a sore throat caused by bacteria might need to see a doctor or nurse. They might have a type of infection called strep throat

How can I tell if my child’s sore throat is caused by a virus or strep throat? — It is hard to tell the difference. But there are some clues to look for

People who have a sore throat caused by a virus usually have other symptoms, too. These can include:

●A runny nose

●A stuffed-up chest

●Itchy or red eyes

●Cough

●A raspy (hoarse) voice

●Pain in the roof of the mouth

People who have strep throat DO NOT usually have a cough, runny nose, or itchy or red eyes.

If you think your child might have strep throat, call your child’s doctor. He or she can do a test to check for the bacteria that cause strep throat.

Does my child need antibiotics? — If the sore throat is caused by a virus, your child DOES NOT need antibiotics. Unless your child has strep throat, antibiotics will NOT help.

What can I do to help my child feel better? — There are several ways to help relieve a sore throat:

●Soothing foods and drinks – Give your child things that are easy to swallow, like tea or soup, or popsicles to suck on. Your child might not feel like eating or drinking, but it’s important that he or she gets enough liquids. Offer different warm and cold drinks for your child to try.

●Medicines – Acetaminophen (sample brand name: Tylenol) or ibuprofen (sample brand names: Advil, Motrin) can help with throat pain. The correct dose depends on your child’s weight, so ask your child’s doctor how much to give.

Do not give aspirin or medicines that contain aspirin to children younger than 18 years. In children, aspirin can cause a serious problem called Reye syndrome. Do not give children throat sprays or cough drops, either. Throat sprays and cough drops are no better at relieving throat pain than hard candies. Plus, throat sprays can cause an allergic reaction.

●Other treatments – For children who are older than 3 to 4 years, sucking on hard candies or a lollipop might help. For children older than 6 to 8 years, gargling with salt water might help.

When can my child go back to school? — If your child’s sore throat is caused by a virus, he or she should be able to go back to school as soon as he or she feels better. If your child has a fever, he or she should stay home for at least 24 hours after the fever has gone away.

How can I keep my child from getting a sore throat again? — Wash your child’s hands often with soap and water. It is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of infection. You can use an alcohol rub instead, but make sure the hand rub gets everywhere on your child’s hands.

Try to teach your child about other ways to avoid spreading germs, such as not touching his or her face after being around a sick person.

My husband throat always remain infected, ENT doctors telling he has hyperacidity due to which acid travels via his throat and infects. Please suggest some remedy.

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Secunderabad
Firstly get his throat subjected to cultre and sensitivity. If is due to infective nature, then treat infection with appropriate treatment. If it due to acid reflux, then he should take proton pump inhibitors in appropriate dose before breakfast.

It is important to find out the cause for giddiness. At this age it is not normal. Go for the following tests and get back to me with the results. 1. Cbc - a blood test. This will help us find your hemoglobin levels, because low hb is a common cause for giddiness among youngsters 2. Ear check - chronic ear infections can cause giddiness, visit a ent to rule out the same 3. Eye check - a un diagnosed eye power can be a cause too. For now follow these tips 1. Soak 8 to 10 raisins in a cup of water overnight and consume it the next day in empty stomach. This is a excellent remedy for giddiness. 2. Take 4 tsp of warm coconut oil. Apply to your feet and massage gently for five minutes at bedtime. Do this daily to get a good nights sleep. 3. Avoid looking at bright screens like phones, tabs, laptop etc half an hour before bedtime. Read a book instead. You will definitely sleep well 4. Deep breathing - 10 rounds three times a day will cure both sleeplessness and dizziness.

If earpain due to cold not relieved in few days than there is chance of infection behind eardrum. Best to consult an ent surgeon to get appropriate course of antibiotics analgesics antihistamines and decongestants. Steam inhalation helps. Better to avoid blowing nose forcibly to clear mucous.

Summary Sex : - Male Date of Birth : - 20/10/2010 Current Age : - 4 Year, 3 months Weight at the time of birth : - 3300 kms. Present weight- : - 18 Kg Delivery Mode : - LSCS Blood Group : - O (+ve) Patient is suffering from enlarged adenoids as well as acute nose block problem during slip due to allergy, his nose always remain discharged (thick and thin liquid may vary from time to time) Regarding his health issues we have discussed many doctors, but doctors are telling that he had allergic problem or Low immune system to resist Dust, Cold & smoke mainly. As he comes touch with cold, smoke and dust, his nose begin discharged, split coming out of the mouth during sleeping, facing acute problem in breathing then fever and cough had difficulties to him, If any medical treatment not given to him within 2-3 days, then his position becomes critical. We had given him an antibiotic and anti allergic tablets as advised by doctors, but from three years nine months, he is suffering same problem and doctors are telling as he will grow up, his immunity will improve as a result day by day his problem will cure. We have discussed with many Child specialists and ENT who told us to avoid surgery for adenoids because enlarged adenoids will cure by self with the time now main problem of nose block during slip is to be cured, because breathing from mouth may also cause of throat infection. When he go out then he has to face dust, smoke and pollution everything that all was beyond our control. So what to do, I am very worried about his health issues. So, we hope your Excellency will look into this matter and suggest as deemed fit for a child health and future. Further, if you required any Diagnostics / reports then please let me know accordingly I will send you.
