Seasonal allergy causes some symptoms sinusitis rashes sneeze during rainy season what should I do to get rid of it.
Allergy is an abnormal state of hyper sensitivity and hyper susceptibility in a person. It shows itself by immediate influence and abnormal response to a specific substance. The same substance is harmless in similar amounts for the majority of people. Your allergic problem can be very well treated by homoeopathy without adverse effects.

The inhaler prescribed for COPD are Formonide 400 and Tiomist, along with Duolin/levolin as SOS. In case of an emergency can Duolin/levolin be taken on as required basis or there needs to be a gap of at least two hours between two inhalations? If so, why?

Its better to have gap of some hours between inhaler doses as other wise there is more chances of its systemic absorption causing its levels higher in blood that can produce side effects such as tremors and low potassium levels etc.

Gargling with warm salt water is an effective way to treat a sore throat. Salt can even help kill the bacteria or virus causing pharyngitis. 1. Mix three teaspoons of salt (preferably sea salt) in two cups of warm water. 2. Gargle with this solution. Do not swallow it. Spit the water out after gargling. 3. Do this several times daily for one to two days. Also take hepar sulph 30 - thrice daily for next 3 days.

Hi lybrate-user, as the cough is of long duration you have to go for blood tests and X-Ray chest. After that you consult your Physician.

Hello, Homoeopathic remedies for asthma are very effective and can cure asthma permanently . Homoeopathic medicines are natural medicines and work by moderating our immune system which usually becomes over reactive in asthma . But i need to know more symptoms related to you as a whole.so that i can make totality of symptoms and prescribe you a better medicine. in the mean time take Ars alb 30, 3 drops once daily and BC No. 02, 5 tabs thrice daily. Revert me with more symptoms.

Use asthma controller medication having laba and ics by inhalation with spacer. Get allergy screening blood test to confirm allergy and then skin prick test to detect offending allergens and immunotherapy if indicated.

Hi, Take Schwabe’s Alpha-SH, Alpha-NH and Biocombination-05 - all of them thrice a day for 4 weeks. Use Bakson's Nasal-Aid spray/ 1-2 sprays after every 4 hours. Management: - Avoid cold drinks and fried food, take healthy food. -Avoid exposure to Air-conditioner or cold air. -Take steam-inhalation once before going to bed. -Take enough sleep and rest. Home-Remedies: -When turmeric is combined with spicy ginger root and brewed for hot tea, this combination can help loosen mucus from clogged nasal passages, alleviate sinus pressure, and make you feel better all around. -Two or three tablespoons of raw, unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar added to a cup of hot water or tea taken three times daily will help thin out excessive mucus relieving congestion an sinus pressure. Mix with lemon and honey to taste. - Vitamin C (available in form of chewables) helps the body to resist immune system deficiencies and improves overall health.
