First get a pft test to see how severe it is and then start right treatment from a chest physician. Its an allergic problem, there's nothing like life long treatment. We need to control your asthma so that you don't suffer.

Hi, 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. Asthma.

lybrate-user X ray is not a good tool to comment on sinus status. You should get CT scan of nose and paranasal sinus. Other than sinusitis there are many other nasal diseases which can cause one sided nasal bleeding. So you should also undergo nasal endoscopy to detect it from a good ENT expert.

Dear lybrateuser, -your breathing problem could be due to lung problem or due to heart problem if there is no other accompanying symptom -get x- ray chest, pft (pulmonary function test), ecg tmt done to know the exact cause -the pain & nauseating feeling could be due to acidity -take your meals on time, do not miss meals, avoid spicy, fried & junk food, eat dinner 2-3 hrs before bedtime, do not lye down immediately after meals -have 7-8 glasses of water to flush out the toxins & for proper digestion.

Hi. I understand your concerns. Chronic smoking is very injurious. He has probably developed bronchitis due to smoking. He needs a detailed evaluation like chest x ray to look for infection or malignancy. Once he recovers from same. He needs to undergo pulmonary function test to assess severity of bronchitis based on which treatment needs to be started. Consult a pulmonologist for the same. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.
