I am having tb and tb glands at the right side of the neck. I used to smoke a lot but from 27 September 2016 I left smoking and from that day I am taking medicines for tb on daily basis. Aa per my reports I am having infection in my neck gland. I am worried because I am taking medicines regularly but my gland is getting bigger in size and is this risky to my life?

Internal Medicine Specialist, Motihari
With anti TB treatment, size of lymph nodes should shrink in case of tuberculous lymphadenitis. If size is increasing, diagnosis must be revaluated, also proper dose of antiTB drugs. Besides, tuberculous lymphadenitis there frequent causes may be bacterial infection of neck region including oral cavity. We must also rule out malignancy. Consult your Physician to review.

Avoid fatty foods or drinks with caffeine -Treatment: A cold usually lasts for a week or two. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn't need medical treatment. -Gargle to keep from getting a sore throat.Take only lukewarm water to drink during the day -Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation. -Tablet nasorest-p once/twice daily may ease breathing. -Do steam inhalation once or twice daily.

Hi, I recently completed one year of treatment for Spinal TB with 100% Adherence to medicines. During the treatment, I never had any pain which initially existed and was able to lead a very normal life like others. Once I stopped medicine, I started feeling slight pain at the same place where it all started one year back. While the pain is not as bad as it was, I am just worried about why it still exists. I was advised to go for Physio and attended IFT sessions which considerably reduced paid but I still feel a pain like a pinch between my buttocks and lower spine. Any advice will be of great help. Let me know if I should see a Neuro to ensure my nerves are in good shape after being infected with TB bacteria.

The most common reason for persisting pain might be the residual damage that tb might have caused to the spine in the form of fibrosis or scars. If you develop again symptoms like severe pain, numbness. Weakness fever night sweats weight loss you should be worried about tb again other wise it might be sequalae. Its always better to take concerned specialist advice, so no harm in taking neuro consultation.

I have Asthma/COPD and would like to know if consuming milk/yogurt/milk products will increase phlem in my lungs. Can you please also suggest some home remedies for asthma/copd.

DNB(Respireatory diseases), M.D
Pulmonologist, Coimbatore
What is your age, smoking status, complaints.Is it asthma or COPD. Both are different problems with different solutions. Moreover there is no specific food restriction for asthma/ allergy. Every individual will have different allergies.So take fresh milk/ yogurt. If you are properly diagnosed with asthma/ COPD take proper inhalers( Controllers LIke formeterol/budesonide or solmeterol/fluticosone) and keep some relievers like salbutomol with or without ipratropium for emergency purpose.

This is due to lack of hydration in the mouth and this can only be corrected by iron rich diet as this will enhance the mucus production inthe mouth and this is really needed to restore the local immunity and less of infection as whenever the bacteria enters in the mouth this gets trapped in the mucus of the mouth.
