It is not unusual in winter months to have long standing cough even after the infection, mostly viral has gone away. However to be on the safer side I would suggest a blood test including cbc and esr, sputum test microscopy and zn stain if you are bringing up phlegm and a chest xray. If these are normal, only symptomatic treatment with a cough syrup will suffice. If tests are abnormal then appropriate treatment has to be given.

First of all you should take rest for 1-2 days so that your body can fight with underlying infection with its full immunity and start the below medication:- take arsenic 200, 5 drops, twice daily. Take eupatrium perf 200, 5 drops thrice daily. Take antifebrinum 3x, 2 tabs, thrice daily. Take alfavena malt, 1 tsf, thrice daily. Drink lots of water and take light homemade food like dalia and khichdi, avoid oily, spicy, fried, junk and cold drinks. If fever does not goes then go for a set of blood tests. Revert me with feedback. Take care of your health. Good day.

Hello lybrate-user the single best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated each year, but good health habits like covering your cough and washing your hands often can help stop the spread of germs and prevent respiratory illnesses like the flu. There also are flu antiviral drugs that can be used to treat and prevent flu. 1. Avoid close contact. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too. 2. Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. This will help prevent spreading your illness to others. 3. Cover your mouth and nose. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick. 4. Clean your hands. Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub. 5. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth. 6. Practice other good health habits. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food. Dr. Yogesh sharma.

ADULT VACCINATION
Prevention is better than cure.Though vaccination is very common in children,but least advised and accepted in adults.Adult vaccination is very cost effective.All adult who are immunocompromised by any disease like diabetis ect.should be vaccinated.
Flu vaccination should be given to all at least once in a year,usually in oct/nov.
Pneumoccocal vaccination which prevent invassive peumoccocal infection which usually is life threatning should be given to all at age of 65 yrs and above once in life and persons having immunocompromized disease at any age and repeated every 5 yrs.
Tetunus and typhpoid vaccination is also reccomended.

Consult your doctor for cost effective way of disease prevention.

Hello Doctor,  I have been having stuffy and blocked nose for quite some time now. I am having trouble in sleeping properly during the night and when I wakeup I have extreme headache. During the day, I have constant headache, with a feeling of drowsiness. I also have trouble concetrating and issues with remembering stuff. I had a septoplasty surgery 5 years back and since then the symptoms are still the same. I had a CT scan done 4 months back.

Dear lybrate-user, You might be suffering from Acute sinusitis. Which is resulting in severe throbing type of headache. You need not to worry. You just need to take proper antibiotic ,which is used in treating these type of infections. And you will be fine in few days. It is blocking of your sinuses which is hampering your studies & is needed to be taken care of. You need to do as I say & you will start feeling better- 1) Practice Steam inhalation 1-2 times a day. 2) Wear socks & gloves as precautionary measures. 3) Avoid late night shifts & take adequate 8 hr sleep. 4)Luke Warm saline water (Halka garm namak-paani) gargles twice daily. 5) Herbal tea in evening (with Tulsi leaves) 6) For acute nasal congestion (Naak poora band ho jaana) you need some nasal drops/sprays & antiallergic medicines. You need to take private consultation for this as medical stores won't provide them without priscription. .Be in touch ,we will see what need to be done. Taking complete course would help you to get permanent releif from this problem.
