Can I get rid of my asthma.. I love cold drinks very much.

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Do you have family history of asthma? the right medications for you depend on a number of things, including your age, your symptoms, your breathing triggers and what seems to work best to keep your breathlessness under control. Preventive, long-term control medications reduce the inflammation in your airways that leads to symptoms. Quick-relief inhalers (bronchodilators) quickly open swollen airways that are limiting breathing. In some cases, allergy medications are necessary.

I have a small air lock in my lower left lung. This has been there for more than 8 years and using Iprovent and Faercort 200 inhaler. But in the last month I develop lung congestion accompanied with severe cough as I struggle get the sputum out. Regular anti-biotic it is reduced but not fully recovered. Suggest me what medicine I should take. I am smoker but reduced considerably less.

FCCP (USA), MD - Pulmonary Medicine

First and foremost both inhaled medication will have very much reduced efficacy if you are current smoker. So stop it. You can take foracort 400. If bringing sputum can try tab mucinac 600 thrice daily with half glass of water.

Hello doctor My son is 3 year old He has cold and cough from last 25 days He has been on medicines ,it is reducing gradually. The doctor has tried antibiotics and has now given deriphyllin syrup. When asked he said the child has asthma. We are shocked by this and can not understand as we don't see any asthmatic symptoms in our child. Your opinion.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Hello. I understand your concern. Persistent cough is one of the feature of asthma. Repeated cough may be due to diverse reasons. We cannot label child as asthma before 5 years of age. But will have to keep this thing in mind if he continues to have repeated cough.

Abnormal awareness of own heart beat is called palpitation. There could various reasons for palpitation. It could be because of anxiety or tension. It could be because of various cardiac reasons like valve disease, increase in heart size (hypertrophy) etc and also because of hormone disorders like thyroid hormone, adrenal hormones etc. You should consult a cardiologist in person for further diagnosis and treatment.
