I am feeling difficulty in breathing and I take seroflo inhaler for last 10 years. I feel that there will be side effect but not showing it. Now my question is can I be curable these breathing problem because I take 1pill in one day, is it psylogically effect on me of taking or how can I be cured from it. Please help me.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
Seroflo inhaler being used by you, if for asthma, and inhaler medicines are considered the best choice and safest for asthma, in the treatment options available, although they may also have some side effects over long time, so it should be the goal that whatever least possible dose is able to control all the symptoms of asthma should be taken from the inhalers, because the medicines in inhaler form also contains different strengths. If the asthma has been under a good control it is the best because like many other diseases like high bp and diabetes, asthma also can be controlled and not cured in most of the cases. You should consult time to time with the doctor to find out any side effects that may have been caused by inhalers taken over many years.

7 Things To Avoid When You're Suffering From Cough

7 Things To Avoid When You're Suffering From Cough

1. Avoid eating cold foods: According to Dr. Pradip shah, consultant physician, fortis hospital, mulund, a common cold and cough triggered by cold food items like ice-cream and cold drinks is a common complain of people visiting local health clinics. Although there is no scientific evidence as to how cold food items trigger and worsen coughs, patients are normally advised to avoid them altogether until they recover completely. One sensible explanation for this would be that cold beverages and foods cause a drying out of the respiratory lining making it susceptible to infections and triggering coughing due to irritation.

2. Avoid overeating at night: Having a heavy dinner at night or overeating can be a cough trigger for people suffering from gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd). People with gerd may have poor coordination between contraction and relaxation of the sphincter muscle that prevents reflux of food to the esophagus. As a result, the stomach acid can flow back to the food pipe, causing irritation of the lining to trigger cough. So, it’s better to have an early dinner and maintain a gap of at least 2 hours between dinner and sleeping time.


3. Avoid sleeping flat on the back: Sleeping posture plays an important role in triggering coughing at night, especially if you have a productive cough. All the mucus and phlegm that gets collected throughout the day, flows up to irritate the throat when you lie down on your back. Instead, sleeping in an inclined posture, or sleeping on the sides will keep the phlegm settled and avoid bouts of coughing at night. 

4. Avoid eating fried foods: Fried foods are oily in nature and oil is a well-known cough trigger. Deep-frying foods in hot oil generates a compound called acrolein, which acts as an allergen that aggravates coughing and causes throat itching. So, it’s best to avoid oily, fried foods while you have a cough.


5. Avoid smoking: Smoking is one of the causes of a cough due to bronchitis. Not only does it irritate the throat lining, but it also delays recovery and increases your risk of cancer. If you don't smoke, remember second-hand smoke is equally dangerous. 

6. Avoid caffeinated beverages: Caffeine should be avoided by those who cough due to acidity and gerd. While it may provide temporary relief from a coughing bout, it actually causes the esophageal sphincter to become loose, allowing more acid to get flushed into the esophagus.


7. Avoid over-exertion: Nobody takes an off from work because of a cough, but that doesn’t mean you should exert yourself by overworking. Coughing is an indication that something is wrong with your body, so make it a point to get adequate rest to give your immune system enough time to recover.

What are the side effects of asthma medicines when someone is suffering from Asthma disease.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Navi Mumbai
When she will grow by the time asthma get subside mostly. So no need to take long term. There are some inhaler which content steroids. In steroid taken by patient then bone shrinkage possible. But it attack of asthma it must take by patient. But some asthma medicine does not content steroid so it will not effect on bone. You should take ayurvedic medicine by good and well known ayurvedic doctors it will help you lot.

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.

Use any good sunscreen that is rated SPF-30 and above (examples – Nivea, Biotique, Neutrogena). Apply sunscreen every 3 hours. Always cover your face with cloth whenever you are going out, especially if on a two-wheeler or rickshaw, to keep it safe from dust as much as possible. Use a face wash at least twice a day. Drink lots of water to keep yourself well-hydrated, 2-3 liters depending on your activity levels and weather. Eat sour fruits like orange, amla. These are rich in Vit C. You can also start oral vitamin C supplements like Tab LIMCEE/CELIN which is available OTC in medical stores. Kindly get a CBC, ESR, xray chest pa view and usg abdomen done and revert.
