Have a healthy diet and protect other family members by using a mask. And the most important thing is to take complete treatment for 6 months as if left earlier the disease will worsen and may become mdr tb.

You should do x-ray of chest and neck/regions to find out if there is any problem - this needs to be treated. Drink plenty of warm fluids. Drinking warm fluids helps to loosen the secretions in your sinuses so that your mucus flows more freely, making you feel better faster. Studies show that drinking warm fluids relieves cold symptoms such as runny nose, cough, sneezing, sore throat, and fatigue.

Do you have any history of hypertension, diabetes, smoking, high cholesterol, or a strong family history of heart diseases. Do you have a history of acidity? It's better that you see a physician and if needed take an ECG, etc.

Hello there, for cough, take 2-2 teaspoonful of pranacharya kasantak by mixing it in hot water twice daily. Sitopaladi, praval and tankan bhasm churna taken with honey can also bring relief. Consume this 3 to 4 times a day for relief from dry cough; you can also drink tea with basil leaves or add ginger and black pepper in it. Salted hot water gargling also helps. And stay away from cold drinks and don't take milk when having cough.

First get a ct scan of the sinuses to find out which sinuses are involved. Then an ent consultation should be done. If you do have a sinus involvement it can be cured with either medicines or surgery.

DAA, DNB
Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I understand your concerns. Asthma is a common allergic condition which is not curable but definitely be controlled so that you lead a symptom free life. You will need to undergo pulmonary function test to diagnose and to assess the severity of asthma based on which treatment can be tailored. You will benefit from inhalers. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

I have continuous cough for last 1 week. It happens regularly after 3-4 months. I have consulted doctors.

MBBS, cc USG
General Physician, Gurgaon
frequent/ continuous cough cold may be because of many reasons like: 1. Any ent problem like dns polyp sinusitis 2. Low immunity 3. Allergic condition so you need to consult ENT doctor for proper examination and further management. There are some supplement available that can be start after personal consultation and these supplement can reduce severity and no. of episodes of this problem

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Homoeopathic remedies for asthma are very effective and can cure asthma permanently . Homoeopathic medicines are natural medicines and work by moderating our immune system which usually becomes over reactive in asthma . But i need to know more symptoms related to you as a whole.so that i can make totality of symptoms and prescribe you a better medicine. in the mean time take Ars alb 30, 3 drops once daily and BC No. 02, 5 tabs thrice daily. Revert me with more symptoms.

Hi, I am having asthma problem what precautions should be taken to keep myself healthy. Please tell me.

Take 11 guava leaves, 11 black pepper, 1 cup milk and one cup water. Put all of them in pot and boil it well, when it reduced to one cup, drink in empty stomach. Take this daily for at least six months or a year. 2.Boil cumin seeds in water and inhale the steam. It helps dilate the bronchial passage. 3.Take 5 gm of ginger, black pepper, cardamom, clove, cinnamon, turmeric and 30 gm of sugar. Grind the mix to a powder. Take half to one teaspoonful and mix it nicely with honey. Take it twice a day 4.Pulses like old rice (rice which is stored for at least one year is called old), wheat, barley, kulattha, mung beans, arhar beans, etc . should be consumed. 5.Honey, warm drinks like herbal teas, spice teas are also okay. 6.Sprouts, nuts and seeds can be taken in moderate amount. 7.The heavy foods and those which make ama should be avoided. This mainly includes milk products like cheese, curd, butter milk, creams, and banana, etc. 8.Oily, greasy and fried foods which are difficult to digest should be avoided. 9.White flour and white sugar products should be avoided. 10.In addition, try to avoid the cold foods, cold drinks and other refrigerated things. 11.Avoid excessive or physically demanding exercise. Yoga and Pranayama can be helpful.

Hello I am from dhaka, bangladesh. My mother (54 years) was diagnosed with lung cancer 4th stage (metastatic adenocarcinoma) one month ago. She was going through dry cough for like 3 months so further investigation like biopsy confirmed it's lung cancer. But we didn't rely on our country's (bangladesh) report. So we went to apollo specialty hospital, chennai, india an ran pet ct scan followed by tapping as she had fluid in her lungs and then again biopsy. This time during the biopsy, my mother caught pneumothorax. So the doctor admitted her to emergency and inserted a tube in her backside. They called it drainage system. This will let the fluid come out of her lungs along with air that entered through pneunothorax. They kept the tube for 3/4 days and then released it. Now the doctor asked to do the chemotherapy. I get scared whenever I hear about chemotherapy. Is it the only way out? will this chemotherapy be effective for a long time? I did few researches over internet about the survival rate of lung cancer patient and it seems to be very low. Now I will write you the comments of pet ct scan and biopsy. 1. Pet ct scan: a) hypermetabolic primary mass in lingula b) hypermetabolic pleural metastases with effusion in left hemithorax. C) hypermetabolic metastatic paraaortic with non fdg avid left hilar nodes. D) no other demonstrable metabolically active disease in whole body survey. F) imaging is suggestive of bronchogenic malignancy in lingula segment of left lung with nodal and pleural metastases (t2an2m1a- stage iv) 2. Biopsy report: a) biopsy from left lung mass: consistent with adenocarcinoma, grade ii: ct guidedbiopsy from left lung mass. So what do you think, is it controllable? it is very worse? I want her to live. What kind of chemotherapy would you suggest? apart from chemo, is there any other way to treat or control it along with the chemo? I heard there is some drug called terceva. Internet says it treated their fourth stage cancer. I don't know but I am seeking your help regarding this

Thanks for providing good patient profile. From your reports, the only site of distant metastasis is paraaortic lymph nodes. Yes you are right that stage iv lung cancer has a poor prognosis. However a certain subpopulation of these patients still have a chance of favorable outcome. However this depends on number of things 1. Histology (adenocarcinoma favorable) 2. General condition of patient (performance status) 3. Presence of egfr mutations (favorable prognosis) 4. Absence of solid organ involvement (good prognosis). So egfr mutation study is next step. You have also asked any alternative option to chemotherapy. Yes there is a option. That is erlotinib (tarceva). But the tumor has to be egfr positive. Erlotinib is now recommended for egfr positive metastasic adenocarcinoma of lung (without any concomitant chemotherapy) until progression of the disease.
