Now Days I quit smoking but now I want to clean my lungs from taar please give suggestion to heal it.

M.D - Respiratory medicine
Pulmonologist, Hyderabad
Well done. Don't smoke again. Nothing can physically clean. Impact of tobacco on lung function can be reduced by assessment and if needed inhalers with 3 monthly reassessment by a pulmonologist. Fresh fruit, and vegetables supply antioxidants which protect.

As soon as I started using an eye drops acupat' I was having an unusual feelings or irritation below my eyes near nose. Now I already stopped using the drop after using it for two months, but also the feelings or irritability has not gone. What shall I do? I have mild headache too sometimes. Or is it sinus irritation due to the side effect of the drop since I used it for a long time?

DORL, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Faridabad
Yes sometimes drops causes irritation in the nose as eyes and nose are connected through tubes to each other, as the drops go in the nose, some may get irritation.
