I am suffering from asthma since age of 13 now I am 19 still asthma is not ending any solution to end.
It may continue life time or may go into long remission after prolong treatment. But it is never cured (only controlled) permanently by any method of treatment.

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.

Hello lybrate-user, asthma is fast curable with ayurveda. We cure a lot patients even children below 5 yrs. Add 1/2 small spoon salt to sesame oil or cocconut oil make mixture hot. Massage to your chest & back for 10 - 15 min afterwards give hot fomentation. Continue this for a week you will get better results. Avoid oily food. Do pranayam & dirgh swasan under guidence. As its cronic asthma you need medicines along with this, so consult ayurvedic doctor near you.

You maybe most probably suffering from gastritis or gastro esophageal reflux disease. You have to avoid spicy and fried foods. Also avoid junk food and fast food. If your problems are worse, you need to take an ecg and take medications.

My wife has been coughing for the last more than two weeks, dry , have tested TB,Hiv all negative. She is not allergic and also have any other ailments.Her wt.remains static at 62 kgs. Ht. 5ft 5 inch age 44. Is it acid reflux? kindly advice .

FCCP (USA), MD - Pulmonary Medicine
Pulmonologist, Indore
Acid reflux can cause cough but will have additional symptoms of burning sensation in upper abdomen and chest. If this occurred after cold then it is post viral syndrome and needs inhaled medication. Other possibilities to be ruled out is atypical pneumonia, asthma, post nasal drip, any cardiac problem etc. Please visit chest specialist for proper diagnosis. Best wishes
