Dear madam cough syrups do have components to give you sleep ie technically speaking sedatives are included in small doses in cough syrup instead of taking cough syrups as sedatives, I would suggest you two alternatives alternative one: consult a neurologist. Alternative two: follow the following steps which will solve most of problems associated with sleep 1. You have to first have a natural circadian rhythm a. Try to go to sleep and get up at the same time every day. B. And wake at the same time 2. Food a. Do not take coffee or tea after 6 pm b. Milk can be taken 3. Light a. Cover the windows and doors with curtains and avoid light b. Avoid watching tv lying in bed c. Avoid mobile phones / tablets 4. Exercise a. Walk for 45 minutes after dinner b. Take a bath after that try the above simple techniques for two weeks and let me know how much you have improved.

Take 11 guava leaves, 11 black pepper, 1 cup milk and one cup water. Put all of them in pot and boil it well, when it reduced to one cup, drink in empty stomach. Take this daily for at least 1 month Boil cumin seeds in water and inhale the steam. It helps dilate the bronchial passage. Take 5 gm of ginger, black pepper, cardamom, clove, cinnamon, turmeric and 30 gm of sugar. Grind the mix to a powder. Take half to one teaspoonful and mix it nicely with honey. Take it twice a day. for 1 month.

I am a 31 years old woman allergic to pollen dust, cobwebs and humidity. My medical check-up showed bronchial asthma. I have been suffering from the same for the last 23 years. I use asthalin inhaler daily i. E. Whenever I do household chores involving rigorous activity. In short, I am addicted to the inhaler. If the wheezing does not stop then I take a tablet. Since last 3-4 years I am taking Okacet and Betnesol Forte. Please tell me the substitute of both these tablets as I have heard Betnesol is kind of a steroid. I also feel very sleepy after taking this.

Hi lybrate-user, your bronchial asthma is triggered by allergy. I suggest, first and foremost you appropriately figure out and make a note of all the allergen (s) that possibly trigger your asthma. Dust, smoke, pollen, fungi, animal hair, insects, certain food items like wheat, egg, chocolates, flesh foods etc, cold/ hot air, humidity, stress, acidity etc all are common allergens that might precipitate bronchial asthma and the triggers vary from person to person. In your case, as I understand, it is dust, pollen, cobweb, physical stress and humidity. Do you have any other triggers apart from the above-mentioned? so, once you identify all the right trigger (s), try your level best to avoid the same. You need to continue the prophylactic medications as advised by your doc until he finds it ok to withdraw any of your medications. Additionally, please check with your pulmonologist if he would like to advise any preventive puffs as appropriate that you may use irrespective of breathing issues for a longer duration, and one that shall also help prevent any precipitation of asthmatic conditions. Apparently, you also need to have a emergency puff with you, that you can use sos, basis your doc's advise/ prescription. Also, make sure your diet/ nutrition, lifestyle including bowel habits etc all are streamlined. Learn to relax and keep your stress levels, both physical as well as mental, low. Its advisable to eat in moderation and less than your full capacity than eating to your full. Try avoiding tea, coffee, spices, chilies, pickles, extremely hot & cold/ chilled foods for they cause acidity and trigger asthma too in some people. Do consume citrus fruits/ vegetables rich in vitamin c as they help strengthen immunity. Warm saline gargling, at least once daily, shall help protect you from throat related afflictions/ allergies that often trigger asthma in certain people. Mostly, fresh air, dry climate, regular exercise go a long way in helping avert precipitation of an attack. Daily consumption of ginger-tulsi tea helps as well in these conditions, unless you have any specific reservations. Similarly, freshly ground turmeric (1/4 tsp) taken along with honey (1 tsp) and black pepper (1 - 2 nos) helps control allergies and inflammations systemically. You may take the same post dinner, in a glass of warm water, daily for about a week to 10 days first, and see for improvements, if any. Just ensure that you are keeping a gap of at least a hour between your allopathic medications and the safe home based herbal remedies as suggested above. Should you feel your condition worsens still, upon taking home made herbal remedies, just stop taking them. Inhaling the scent of honey during an asthma attack may also help breathe easier. On a daily basis, as well as during attacks, you can continue steam inhalations as advised. Learning well & practicing yogasanas/ postures and breathing techniques/ pranayams help streamline/ regulate breathing patterns, and increase the airflow to the lungs, increases its air capacity, exercises the respiratory muscles etc, thereby improving the lung function overall. It also helps de-stress and relax thereby facilitating breathe easily, and properly. It is advisable to learn the techniques/ asanas from a trained person who can advise rightly in line with your medical conditions/ requirements. Hope this helps. Take care and all the very best.

Most coughs and colds are caused by germs called viruses. Many different viruses can infect the nose and throat. They are passed on by coughing and sneezing the virus into the air. An average preschool and primary school child has 3-8 coughs or colds per year. Sometimes several coughs or colds occur one after the other. The common symptoms are a cough and a runny nose. The cough is often worse at night. Coughing does not damage the lungs. In addition, a child may have a raised temperature (fever), a sore throat, headache, tiredness, and be off their food. Sometimes children may be sick (vomit) after a bout of coughing. A build-up of mucus behind the eardrums may cause dulled hearing or mild earache. There is no magic cure! typically, symptoms are worse in the first 2-3 days, and then ease over the next few days as the immune system clears the virus. An irritating cough may linger for up to 2-4 weeks after other symptoms have gone. Antibiotics do not kill viruses, so are of no use for common coughs and colds. Coughs and colds often do not need any treatment. Make sure your child has enough to drink. Low body fluid (dehydration) may develop if a child has a raised temperature (fever) and does not drink much. Treatment aims to ease symptoms. Paracetamol can ease aches and pains, headaches, and fever. Ibuprofen is an alternative. Both are sold in pharmacies in liquid form for children. There are various brands - ask the pharmacist if you are unsure what is suitable. A popular treatment for a blocked nose in a baby is to put a few drops of salt water (saline) into the nose just before feeds. Some people feel that this helps to clear the nose to make feeding easier. There is little scientific evidence as to how well this works, but it may be worth a try if feeding is difficult. You can buy saline drops from pharmacies. Vapour rubs are another popular treatment. They can be applied to the chest and back (avoid application to the nostril area in small children, for safety reasons). Again, there is little scientific evidence as to how well they work. Inhaling steam can also help relieve congestion and coughing. The safest way to do this with children is to sit in the bathroom with a hot shower/hot taps running. Sucking menthol sweets can help ease sore throats in older children.

This could be a fissure with sentinel pile. Anal fissure improves with general measures but may require surgery. The general measures I would suggest are 1. Take lot of vegetables & fruits in your diet 2. Avoid chillies & spices 3. Take lot of fluids 4. Avoid constipation 5 periodically do anal exercises (alternately contracting & relaxing the buttocks, anal area & upper thighs) 6. Take sitz bath 3-4 times a day. This means sitting in a tub of warm water & doing anal exercises 7. Atleast once get it examined by a general surgeon. Purulent discharge might be due to a fistula. The surgeon will find it on examination.

Main symptoms for sinusitis are thick nasal discharge, headache, watering eyes, forehead pain, recurrent infection of nose and mouth, post nasal drip, sinusitis, is nothing but a physiological disorder of nose which led by malfunctioning of aerodynamics of nose (temporary sinusitis, secondly it is because of repeated infections of the sinus (permanent sinusitis) sinuses regulations and air conditioning of the air which we breathe and to get the benefit of above we must have normal, well sized opened sinusitis and hence nose breathing is required, those who breathe from mouth, they have tendency to get more throat and lungs infections. Recurrent sinus infection, pollution, poor diet, spicy food, long term steam inhalation from nose, and allergies leads to thick discharge from nose. This thick mucus if stays in the sinuses, it leads to irritation of the sinus skin which is mucosa and this go on growing hence leads to permanent sinusitis this extra growth is called nasal polyps this is where patient needs surgical correction. If patient comes to nose surgeon at right time, doctor can revert his/her symptoms and surgery can be abandoned. Sinusitis if patient does not take serious steps to correct might lead to cardiac symptoms, lung diseases, etc. Once there are nasal polyps you have to go for surgery immediately.
