I am suffering from dry cough for the last 2 weeks and I have chest pain whenever I cough hard. Can you suggest what should be done?

Hello- Here are 7 Natural Cough Remedies for Persistent & Dry Coughs:- 1. A Spoonful of Honey 2. Licorice Root Tea 3. Gargle Salt Water 4. Steam, Steam, Steam! I can’t say how underrated steam is when it comes to anything dealing with a cough, cold, or congestion. Not only does the steam quite literally loosen mucous and phlegm, almost immediately, but you can add numerous essential oils that will impart wonderful healing benefits. 5. Tea Thyme 6. Pepper & Honey 7. Ginger Peppermint Syrup.

What medications are best for the treatment of asthma? What are their side effects?

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
Inhalers are best for asthma containing inhaled steroids and bronchodilators medicines. They can produce local side effects such as oral ulcers, hoarseness of voice and some side effects due to long term use in high doses such as weakening of bones, vision problems in eyes and rarely increased cholesterol, blood pressure etc. But good thing is these side effects occur in only few patients if the medicines are taken under guidance of a doctor properly.

Sir i'm suffering from sinus. What precautions should take for that? Please advise.

do you have pain on cheek bones on pressing it? hot fomentation is really helpful in sinus besides drink fluids, such as water or juice. This will help dilute mucous secretions and promote drainage. Avoid beverages that contain caffeine or alcohol, as they can be dehydrating. Drinking alcohol can also worsen the swelling of the lining of the sinuses and nose. Moisturize your sinus cavities. Drape a towel over your head as you breathe in the vapor from a bowl of medium-hot water. Keep the vapor directed toward your face. Or take a hot shower, breathing in the warm, moist air. This will help ease pain and help mucus drain. Apply warm compresses to your face. Place warm, damp towels around your nose, cheeks and eyes to ease facial pain. Rinse out your nasal passages. Use a specially designed squeeze bottle (sinus rinse, others), saline canister or neti pot to rinse your nasal passages. This home remedy, called nasal lavage, can help clear your sinuses. If you make your own rinse, use water that's contaminant-free distilled, sterile, previously boiled and cooled, or filtered using a filter with an absolute pore size of 1 micron or smaller to make up the irrigation solution. Also be sure to rinse the irrigation device after each use with contaminant-free water, and leave open to air-dry. Sleep with your head elevated. This will help your sinuses drain, reducing congestion. 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.

Bronchodilators and short course of steroids form the mainstay of treatment. These are best taken in metered dose inhalation.

If steroids are given orally for long periods of time than only it will cause bone shrinkage but if given through nebulisation than it won't have any side effects

What is the best medicine for the patient of asthma so that its valgum completely ended.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
-take 11 guava leaves, 11 black pepper, 1 cup milk and one cup water. Put all of them in pot and boil it well, when it reduced to one cup, drink in empty stomach. Take this daily for at least six months or a year. -boil cumin seeds in water and inhale the steam. It helps dilate the bronchial passage. -take 5 gm of ginger, black pepper, cardamom, clove, cinnamon, turmeric and 30 gm of sugar. Grind the mix to a powder. Take half to one teaspoonful and mix it nicely with honey. Take it twice a day.

The cold and cough has also involved your sinuses...which is causing pain and heaviness in your left eye. Once it resolves the ache in and around eye will also go. Steam inhalation helps significantly to reduce pain.
