MBBS, cc USG
General Physician, Gurgaon
If symptoms are sneezing, running nose, blocked nose 1. Take proper rest/ lot of fluids 2. Take proper home made diet. 3. Steam inhalation carefully by steam inhaler twice a day for 2-3 days frequent/ continuous cough cold may be because of many reasons like: 1. Any ENT problem like DNS polyp sinusitis 2. Low immunity 3. Allergic condition so you need to consult ENT doctor for proper examination and further management.

Yes definitely. If you have the determination, ayurveda has the permanent solution for you. First if all start cleaning your body and face with fuller's earth. Apply and let dry. Wash preferably with neem leaves boiled water (at least twice a week). Fuller's earth may be used daily and wash with clean water. Take mild purgative orally. I recommend taruni kusumakar churna 1 tsp at night daily with warm water for a week. Then twice a week for three weeks. Manjishtha, neem, haridra capsules of himalaya's pure herbs series. 1 each twice a day for 4 weeks. Mahamanjisthadi kwath liquid 20 ml + water before meals twice a day. Apply himalaya's anti pimple cream daily. Apply fresh aloe vera extract from your garden daily night. Keep for two hrs. Wash with anti acne face wash of himalaya personal care. Avoid oily and heavy food. Fibers, leafy veg and lot of water should be routine. Do deep breathing at least for 10 minutes daily in fresh air. Report after four weeks.

DNB Cardiology, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS

Dear , fast heart beats are due to abnormal electrical circuits inside heart. You needs to see an arrhythmia specialist (electrophysiologist). We can investigate you by ecg, holter monitoring, and if necessary by ep study for palpitations. Such fast heartbeats can sometimes be dangerous, so it is necessary to investigate further.

Night Time Cough - 5 Tips to Manage it

MBBS

Night Time Cough - 5 Tips to Manage it

Coughing during the night can really wreak havoc for your sleep and cause inexplicable discomfort in the throat and chest region. Thankfully, you can manage it by soothing your tickling throat as well as sensitive airways before you go to bed at night. 

  1. Drink herbal tea: A mugful of non-caffeinated tea mixed with a teaspoon of honey before going to bed can help you to a considerable extent. This is because any warm liquid has the power to break down the formation of mucus in the throat region and with a bit of honey, the herbal tea becomes even more powerful.
  2. Try to sleep in an inclining position: Gravity is your greatest enemy while combating night-time cough. When you lie down flat on your back at night, all the mucus and dust particles, which you have swallowed all through the day, would accumulate in the throat area and aggravate it making more cough. But you can easily defy gravitational force by piling up some pillows and prop yourself on them while sleeping. You may also keep a wooden block of 4 inches height under your head, which would keep the acids in the stomach so that they don’t come up to irritate your throat.
  3. Make sure you use the steam cautiously: When your airways are dry, it can make you cough harder. Therefore, you may find relief if you take a warm shower or a bath before going to bed. But you have to be sure that you don’t have asthma as steam can prove harmful for you.
  4. Check the level of humidity: Humidifiers are known to soothe the problem of persistent coughing when the surrounding air is dry. But too much of moisture during the night can also make you cough. This is because dust mites, mold and other allergens thrive well in the damp air and they could conspire to make your cough even worse. So, pick up a cheap hygrometer from a hardware store and see that the humidity level stays within 40 to 50 percent.
  5. Equip yourself at night: Keep all the things from drops to water to cough syrup or anything that soothes coughing at your bedside so that you can help yourself in case you wake up in the middle of the night and start coughing.

By following these few tips every day, you can manage the night time cough and have a good night’s sleep without any interruptions. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I am suffering allergic cough. I take a LEVOWOK 500 under pharmaceutical. Is it tablet cure allergic cough?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Hyderabad
Cold, cough and throat problem can happen due to weather changes, exposure to cold air or rain, dust and pollen allergy and certain sour food. *. Mix some salt in warm water and do gargling early in the mornings. * Steam inhalation will relieve your congestion *. Keep a clove (lavang) in your mouth and slowly chew it. *. Drinking water frequently will eliminate toxins From the body and reduce congestion if any *. Avoid fried and oily foods. This can be treated by homoeopathy without adverse effects. Take Belladonna 200 –once in the morning and once in the evening.

MD - Pathology
General Physician, Amritsar
If it is a birth mark on your leg see a plastic surgeon he will help you get rid of it. If it is a small scar mark, apply any of the available creams like nomarks, scar will fade away over few months large scars will again need a plastic surgeon for your breathing problem, if it's seasonal, then take tablet allegra120 once daily whenever you have problem along with tablet deriphyline retard 150 twice daily. If you're problem is chronic see a chest for your mother's headache, get her blood pressure and vision checked and give tablet combiflam for pain.
