I am 21 years old and I have cold 12 months a year. I have sensitive throat and nose and if I eat something cold or drink cold water, then I get tonsills. Due to tonsills perhaps I get cold. I have taken levocentrozone to control cold but I don't know if this is a permanent remedy or temporary.

LCPS, BAM&S
General Physician, Pune
This must be allergic cold. Levocentrozone may offer temporary relief. But you need to look beyond drugs. 1. Go to bed before 10 pm. 2. Wear warm clothes all the time. 3. Drink warm water and warm drinks only. Avoid cold drinks. 4. Keep ginger candy in mouth whenever possible. Do this for a month, if it still persists, then see an ayurvedic physician.

I'm having severe cold. My noses are running. I'm slightly having dry cough. I'm feeling uneasy .for 3 days. What should I do.

General Physician, Hyderabad
Hello Mr. lybrate-user! Sir please take cetrizine 10 mg tab at bedtime and for your cough pls take cofdex syrup 10 ml 3 times every day for 5 days. Home remedy for cough will be to roast a laung on a pan and crush it and put the powder on a teaspoon of honey and eat it before bedtime. And avoid drinking or eating anything after it. If you are experiencing fever also please take paracetamol 500 mg two times. If your fever/cough/cold is extending to more than 5 days then pls get blood investigations done to find out the cause of your infection so you can start antibiotics hope you get well soon take care.

You maybe suffering from allergic rhinitis and pharyngitis. You need to avoid the cause of your allergies and also take anti allergy medications. Please consult for prescription. If you have an infection and have fever you will need to do a course of antibiotics. For now do warm saline gargle and steam inhalation 3 times a day.

Having cough from last 2 months its not tv.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
If it would be TV it would be good for you. You could watch it at free of cost. Jokes apart, possibly you wanted to mean Tuberculosis, right? Dear Manish don't you see our Govt health department's advertisement in TV or posters which says "if you have cough persisting for more than 15 days, go the nearest health center positively for a check-up. It might be Tb" Please do not neglect any more. Consult a physician as soon as possible. 2 months is already a long time.

Tell me any good cough medicine bcoz last 15 I have this problem. your new member.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine), Certified in Evidence Based Diabetes Management, MNAMS
Internal Medicine Specialist, Kolkata
Thank you for the query. I would need to ask you certain questions. Is your cough dry or are your producing sputum? Is there any associated fever or throat ache/irritation? Are you having a running nose? Are you a smoker? If your cough is dry, and you are not having a fever, it may be an allergic cough. In that case simple steam inhalation thrice a day may help. You can go for anti-allergic tablets (like levocetirizine) or cough syrups with anti-allergic components. No need for any antibiotic therapy in this cough. If you are producing sputum or having associated fever, it may be a viral infection. A number of cough syrups with the specific composition are available, depending on your cough type. Drink plenty of water. Antibiotics are not effective in viral infection. If a cough persists for more than 1 week (in your case it's 15 days), some blood tests like total count/differential count, sputum examination (for gram stain and AFB stain) and chest x-ray may be needed. If a bacterial infection is detected antibiotic will be needed. Regards.
