Hi take ginger tea mixed with 2-3 crushed garlic cloves. Massaging the chest with warm sesame oil mixed with salt helps to loosen the phlegm deposited in the chest, especially, when followed with steam inhalation. Take shwas kuthar ras twice a day. Pranacharya asthamin capsule 1-1 twice a day. And pranacharya shwas vikarasav 2-2 tsf twice a day. 1-1 drop of cow ghee in both nostrils at night time before sleep. Take hot water steam.

I advise you the followings for your condition: Drink plenty of warm fluids. Drinking warm fluids helps to loosen the secretions in your sinuses so that your mucus flows more freely, making you feel better faster. Studies show that drinking warm fluids relieves cold symptoms such as runny nose, cough, sneezing, sore throat, and fatigue.

I always have cold and cough throughout the year. What is the solution to get rid of this. Which food (vegetable only) I have to take to recover from it. I have also dust allergy. Whether I can take banana (Mysore banana), Ice cream, butter milk etc.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
Although the information given in inadequate, but by going thru your complaints, its possible that you are suffering from respiratory allergy. You should focus on proper control and treatment of the allergy, rather than restrict food items n hope of getting cured, but that does not suggest that you should keep taking food items that you are allergic, so you should get properly tested to know whether you are allergic to these food items, and then may avoid them.

You should try 1) steam inhalation 2-3 times a day. 2) drink lots of water (around 2-3 litres/day) & keep yourself hydrated. 3) anti-allergic medications are must for you, as the condition may worsen with time.

Out of the two nose holes, one of the holes always stays closed and the other open. The blocked side keeps changing. I have no idea of what it is. After using one spray of otrivin it gets completely open for around 10 hours.

DNB (Medicine), MBBS

Quit smoking as quickly as you can. You can take nicotex chewing gum instead of smoking. Gradually reduce the dose and stop it. You can quit smoking like that.
