My kid is suffering from asthma and allergies. so, what must I do.?

Asthma in kids nowadays can be nicely managed. Medicines in inhalant form can control asthma very efficiently. To start the decease is first brought under control with inhaled medicines (steroids + short acting bronchodilators). Later long acting inhaled medicines are used to keep the disease under control. The inhalant medicines have least side effects & act fast with very small dose for this your child has to be under a local pediatrician care. So please approach a nearby pediatrician as your child has to be regularly monitored.

Dear Lybrate user, You may take protein by taking green sprouts, cheese, soyabeans milk curd etc. For cough, you should also take ginger one tea spoon and two glass of water. Boil it till it remains half glass. Add honey and drink twice a day only and immediately call back with the results for further action so that your breathing problem may be cured. Avoid cold drinks heavy oily food, curd etc. For few days.

Dear, Lybrate-user, I reviewed your query with the given facts. Being a patient with Chronic ?Allergic? Or other causes of Asthma, I would like to rule out causes for allergic asthma, by detailed history taking/and clinical reviews for at least 1-2 interactions online at My Lybrate clinic. The other causes needs to be ruled out with private appointment on My Lybrate clinic by prior enquiry for it. Advise on medicines, diet, would be given only after detailed work up of your case. So I would suggest you to book a private appointment with Me on Lybrate for private consultation, as it needs detailed study before any tests and drugs are given to you. I hope to reduce your dependence on these medicines, which have temporary and symptomatic reliefs. I would suggest you to be under guidance of Me, to achieve full and effective diagnosis and treatment plans. I would plan to keep you away from creating any dependence as the case is chronic, which could other wise would lead to side effects from chronic use of these and other advanced medicines for anti-asthmatic effects. Hope this would resolve your current anxiety.

An attack may be brought on by contact with substances to which the person is sensitive and emotional or dietary factors should not be overlooked. A sudden change of temperature can bring on an attack and the first attack usually occurs in childhood. Some alleviation of the symptoms may be obtained with the use of the appropriate tissue salts. Consult a homeopath/Biochemist who will ask you questions to ascertain your personality and ailment. Permanent cure is available in homeopathy. In the mean time try CUPRUM ARS ,KALI PHOS , NAT SULPH 12X 4 pills 4 times A DAY OF EACH. GOD bless

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.
