Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Dry cough is a sign of allergic cough. It can be due to other serious illnesses also but the longer we are having dry cough especially at your age the more sure we are that it is allergic /asthmatic cough. The pain in chest when you cough hard is because we cough with our chest muscles and abdominal muscles. So they sprain. For that hot fomentation is good. You have to 1. Avoiid all precipitating factors. 2. Do not smoke, 3, exercise regularly. 4. Consult a allergy specialist. 5. They will give you medicines as spray/ inhalation for asthma. They are safe. 6. Do not stop medicines till doctor tells. 7. You problem is luckily not a serious problem.

I feel low on energy from past 4 days When I feel hungry and start eating my stomach is full quickly and I get burps. I continue smoking cigarettes and marijuana from 5 years and I had dry cough and yesterday I puked out the food after puking I looked at traces of blood along with cough when I spit that out. Which has arise so many questions in my mind!

Hello, if vomiting was forceful, then some sort of mucosal fear can lead to blood in vomiting. If it persists, or if you have black color stool, need to evaluate further. Stop smoking, if you can't, get in touch with psychiatrist for deaddiction. For medicines and further queries, consult privately. I hope this helps!

Respiratory tract infection Is an important cause of mortality in under 5 children in India. If your child refuses feed, if takes rapid shallow breaths, if skin colour appear bluish, if high grade fever and cough then it is the sign of severe pneumonia. Immediately rush to hospital. If hospital too far then give first dose of antibiotics like amoxycillin clavulanic acid and relieve fever by paracetamol, cold sponging. Don't close his mouth. Allow him to breathe fresh air.
It is the timely medical treatment which matters.

I am giving you some tips to prevent constipation: 1. Take 6-8 glass of water in a day 2. Regular physical activity keeping mobile and active will greatly reduce your risk of getting constipation. Ideally do at least 150 minutes of physical activity every week. 3. You should have about 30 g of fibre a day. You can increase your fibre intake by eating more: I am giving you list of some fibre containing food fruit vegetables wholegrain rice whole wheat pasta wholemeal bread seeds oats 4. Toilet habits never ignore the urge to go to the toilet consult for further management.

No. But do not give thrice in future. If its given thrice for longer duration then it cause side effects. Not in a day or two.

Cough after cold is usually due to post viral infection. Treatment depends on chest (lungs) condition. If there is wheeze in chest, theophylline may be given after consulting pediatrician.

Breathing problem can be avoided by reducing weight, try ro reduce your weight by bringing change in your food choices & habits, keep check on your food habits & keep yourself motivated through out the day to reduce weight. Try to be in negative energy balance with balanced diet under the supervision of diet expert.

What are the reasons for asthma. Does it can be caused with pollution and stress. Is their any complete cure for asthma.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, asthma is a common chronic inflammatory disease of the airways. Asthma is characterized by recurrent episodes of wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing. Sputum may be produced from the lung by coughing but is often hard to bring up. Symptoms are usually worse at night and in the early morning or in response to exercise or cold air. Some people with asthma rarely experience symptoms, usually in response to triggers, whereas others may have marked and persistent symptoms. Pollution, dust particles, cold weather, sudden variation of temperature, smoking and of course stress can be the reason to trigger it off. Asthma is thought to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Medication: bronchitis/ asthma can be treated well with homoeopathic medicines completely, only need to be regular with the medication and avoid those foods/ things to which you are allergic to for sometime. Keep taking your already on going medication, reduce it gradually and slowly once homoeopathic starts acting. Take bakson's astha-aid drops/ 10-15 drops in 1/2 cup water/ thrice d day for 1 month. Report me back after a month.

Medications will be prescribed on the basis of your sputum .is it wet cough or dry cough. For relief you can inhale steam twice a day. Sipping warm beverages like tea, soap will surely help. Wear warm cloths. If it is prolongs. Then consult a physician for the same.
