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

I have a coughing for 5 years what can I do any medicine sir please anything home medicine.

DAA, DNB
Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I can understand your concern. Chronic cough is commonly seen in bronchitis. Get a chest x ray to rule out lung infection. Possibility of bronchitis is more in your case. So better to consult pulmonologist and get done clinical examination of respiratory system and pft (pulmonary function test). Pft is needed for the diagnosis of bronchitis. It will also tell you about severity of the disease and treatment of bronchitis is based on severity only. You may need inhaled bronchodilators and inhaled corticosteroid (ics) don't worry, you will be alright. Hope I have solved your query. Wish you good health. Thanks.

Dear Lybrate User, this is a long time to be suffering. You could start doing warm salt water gargles in the morning and night. Certain tests would need to be done to find out whether this is an allergy or an infection. Please do consult a doctor as empirical medication might not help your condition.

Hello there, for cough, take 2-2 teaspoonful of pranacharya kasantak by mixing it in hot water twice daily. Sitopaladi, praval and tankan bhasm churna taken with honey can also bring relief. Consume this 3 to 4 times a day for relief from dry cough; you can also drink tea with basil leaves or add ginger and black pepper in it. Salted hot water gargling also helps. And stay away from cold drinks and don't take milk when having cough.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details provided. With these kind of multiple problems, it is a case to be shown to competent physician and an endocrinologist. Shayad aap ko PGI Chandigad jana padega. Because she may need to under go a variety of investigations and a team of doctors should be looking at these problems. That is my suggestion. These kind of cases can not be decided on in online consultation. Thanks.

Ya its very right, not only for asthma but also for kidney health avoid frequent n regular pain killer. Use only when its must. Ginger n turmeric are having good pain killer property try these herbs. For frequent headache almonds also do good. Have green tea one cup daily which contains natural antioxidant s n will alleviate if symptoms of arthritis are there.

What medications are best for the treatment of asthma? What are their side effects?

You need to inform how severe is your condition. How many times in a week you wake up during your sleep due to breathlessness? according to the severity of your condition, medicines are generally prescribed. In general, you may have to take more than one inhalers, i. E. One inhalers for regular use another as rescue medicine. At the same time, you may need to take anti-allergic medicines to prevent exacerabation. If you are a smoker, you immediately have to stop it. There are some side effects of taking inhalers containing steroid. It may cause oral ulcer if you do not rinse your mouth properly after using inhalers. Sometimes, steroid tablets or injections are required for treating severe asthma which may cause decreased immunity and makes a human prone to infection.

Hi, my age is 26, I am running a business, I am a chain smoker minimum 15 to 20 cigarette a day from past 4 years due to business tension. Now I want to quit the smoking, how can I quit my smoking habit and how can I clean my lungs which cause damage due to smoking from past 4 years? Is there any treatment? I heard there is treatment of cleaning lungs, so please suggest me.

You must simultaneously treat yourself for the tension.You must quit your smoking completely and you must do it now, seriously. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. But don’t fool yourself any smoking is harmful, and you need to seriously get on with quitting it completely and immediately.
