Stay away from dust. grow more indoor plants and deep breathe pure oxygen through them. You can take a tablet of Phenargan as anti allergic at bed time , side effect is sedation.

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

Ayurveda treatment is the best. But depending upon your condition, severity of disease, diet n life style, you may require different medications. Don't bother too much about s. E. Those differs with different medications. Ayurveda, if given after understanding your problem thoroughly and in right dose, there is no s. E.

Hi you can not get rid of sinusitis. Certain precautions can be taken during an attack of sinusitis to avoid further worsening. You should start with steam inhalation twice a day. That will help in clearing up the phlegm collected in sinuses also reducing the headache if you have. Nasal blockade will be due to allergy can use nasal decongestant drops to open up during night but keep usage occasionally. You can have cold water but not the chilled ones. Avoid exposure to dust that precipitates an attack of sinusitis. Get an x-ray of sinuses done and nasal endoscopy done that will give a better picture of how severe is sinusitis accordingly treatment can be started. Take care.

I am 57 years old, male asthmatic and diabetic. Two months back I had an acute excaberation of bronchial asthma, which was treated by antibiotics, bronchodilators, oral steroids and inhalers ie Asthalin and Budecort. I am free from all symptoms, but I am still on inhalers, especially Budecort inhaler. Should I continue using budecort inhaler, as I sometimes feel breathless especially while lying down or during strenuous activities? Is it safe? Also, I wish to inform you that I was a heavy smoker, say 20 years back. Now I have stopped, since 5 years, and the attacks are less frequent. Now, if I feel like having a smoke, I have only one per day. I am trying my best, even to stop it. I gave up the habit by sheer will power and also due to the fact that I am asthmatic. Should I continue using inhalers, especially Budecort inhaler and if so, is it safe, considering the fact that it is a corticosteroid? Please advice.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
Yes. Inhaled corticosteroids have minimal effect on blood sugar levels, although theoretically that's possible. But using inhalers will keep your lung problem in control and further exacerbation may be prevented. If you were a confirmed asthmatic and continue to smoke, then your disease may change to copd, where the broncho-constriction is irreversible and the risk of exacerbation increases, so quitting is the best way for future.

General Physician,
You may be having chronic bronchitis may be allergic. Due to some infection or prolonged exposure to cold climate. Try to avoid cold climate as far as possible by taking preventive measures. Have plenty of vitamin c or freshly prepared home made nimboo pani which is rich in vitamin c thereby increases your immune system prevent infection.

Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Have you correctly diagnosed it as tonsils as per doctor did you do the rapid strep test or throat swab culture? treatment for tonsillitis will depend on the nature of tonsils, if bacterial infection of tonsils then antibiotics can be prescribed. 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.

If it is chronic (means of long duration) then get a ct scan done bcz there may be polyps inside the nose. You can start tab. Montair-l daily at bed time and flomist nasal spray 2 puffs twice a day for 2 weeks. Review with ct scan report.

M.D. Toxicology & MJ, Certified Dermatologist , Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
As per my opinion take ayurved medicines for 2-3 months regularly which will develop your own immunity because this problem is generated due to your poor immune system. Do not take any kind of immune suppressor which may make you panic for your whole life take these home remedy ginger juice 1tsp+ garlic juice 1tsp+ turmeric powder 1tsp+ ghee 1tsp+ sendhav salt as per test+ honey 2 tsp take these ingredients 3-4 times a day ghee 4 drops in both nostrils 3 times a day as nasya and maha sudarshan kwaath in empty stomach at morning add green vegetables, salad, and vit c (worm) in your daily routine. Your treatment should be depend on your body construction, your habitats, satwa, saatmya, etc so it will be completely personalised consult me in private for proper remission
