Hi, I am having cough from a long time. Had taken medicine but then too having cough. Please help.

Long term cough needs to be diagnosed well. It could be due to allergies, smoking for long, tuberculosis, etc. Once diagnosed the treatment can be done accordingly. Usually for allergic cough homeopathic medicines work the best.

I have been to a water park (Aqua magical) and there due to feirce rides a bit of water got in through my nose into my body, I now have shallow breathing (I. E I can't breathe deep) and I feel a bit uneasy Should I be concerned please help ASAP.

PGDCC, MD(Chest), PG Dip.Clin.Cardiology
Pulmonologist, Ghaziabad
In this way water can enter your sinuses and a little bit in lungs but it is not of great concern, as mostly it all resolves by itself in 2-3 days. If you continue to have problems then you need treatment for infection or allergic inflammation.

ASTHMA -prevention better than cure

General Physician, Hyderabad
ASTHMA -prevention better than cure
Here are a few tips to avoid the asthma triggers:

1. Keep your house fume-free.

2. Perfumes, and soaps, can be a problem for some children with asthma. Any product with a strong smell releases chemicals into the air. For a child with asthma, these fumes can cause an attack.

3. Avoid exposure to strong smell of oil paints, turpentine, perfumed candles, etc.

4. Keep windows closed during evening as pollen count is high.

5. Wash sheets and other bedding in hot water at least once a week to limit dust mites. You can also cover pillows and mattresses with special dust-proof covers.

6. Avoid keeping pets like birds, dogs and cats.

7. Limit your use of pesticide sprays when you can. Keep cockroaches out of your home by keeping food in airtight containers or in the fridge and keeping your trash tightly covered.

8. Prevent mold growth. Get a/c cleaned regularly. Use exhaust fan while cooking or showering to prevent mold growth.

9. Avoid smoking.

I had taken IGE test since I had asthma. The levels were 850UI. It was high (normally upto 200UI). What are the natural remedies to decrease it?

Pulmonologist, Faridabad
Avoid allergen exposure on which your IgE may go/down. For asthma control use asthma controller medicine by inhalation with spacer. Or consult a pulmonologist.

I seem to be having sinus wherein one of my nostrils is blocked (partially) for most of the time, although I don't seem much bothered by it since it has been around 9 yrs now. Anything that can be done to cure this? thanks

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.
