I am suffering from cough and cold from two days, will any one please advise me some medicines?
There are several things you can do to prevent a cold—they are all easy and inexpensive and worth the effort. Wash your hands often-with soap and warm water.The germs stick to the soap and get washed down the drain. Always wash your hands after coughing or sneezing into your hands, blowing your nose, after touching someone who is sick, or when using public restrooms or telephones. Cover Your Mouth and Nose When You Sneeze or Cough- Clean your hands every time you cough or sneeze. Avoid Touching Your Eyes, Nose, or Mouth-Germs are often spread when a person touches a contaminated surface and then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth. Stay Home When You’re Sick-Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, don’t smoke, manage stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food so you can fend off viruses. Take healthy balanced diet...like boiled eggs.daily in breakfast .. Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. Routinely clean and disinfect common areas of your home. Treatment:There is a gradual 1-3 day onset of symptoms. It often starts out as a sore throat, then a fever and coughing. As the cold progresses, the nasal mucus may thicken which is the last stage before the cold dries up. A cold usually lasts for a week or two. But, taking good care of yourself at home can relieve symptoms and help prevent complications if you are otherwise healthy. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn’t need medical treatment. Complications include bacterial infections of the ears, throat, sinuses or lungs which must be treated with antibiotics. In general you should: • get plenty of rest so your body can use its energy to fight the cold • staying at home will keep you from spreading germs • drink plenty of liquids like herbal tea or hot broth/vegetable/tomato soups. Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine which can keep you from getting enough sleep Runny Nose and Sneezing- if you have post nasal drip, gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. Drink extra fluids. (avoid sugary and high calorie drinks) Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation • Tablet Nasorest-P once/twice daily may reduce the amount of mucous. • Humidify the rooms you are in most or your whole house if possible. Cough-Coughing is how your body gets rid of debris and mucus from the airways during a viral infection. Unless your cough is severe or is keeping you from resting at night, it is better not to treat it. A severe cough can be treated with a cough syp, but don’t try to completely stop the cough. There are two types of coughs. Productive and non-productive or dry cough. Non-productive, dry cough. A dry, hacking cough may develop near the end of a cold. Dry coughs that follow viral colds are often worse at night and can last up to several weeks. Take syrup Alex-D for a dry cough. Cough drops can sooth an irritated throat, but most don’t affect the cough. Productive cough. A productive cough is one that brings up mucus from the back of the throat or the lungs. Productive coughs should not be suppressed to the point they no longer bring up mucus. Use syrup Alex. Drink lots of water if you have a productive cough. Head and Body Aches- Take tablet dolo-650 mg for fever once or twice daily

Hi, I'm an asthma patient since childhood and still I'm having problems related to breath & all, I'm taking asthalin Inhaler on daily basis (around 7-8 doses everyday whenever I feel chest wheezing or breathing problem) I want to ask that will asthma can be cure at this age (24), What should I do because I think somewhere I'm not taking proper care of myself. Please suggest Thanks.

Asthma although can occur in any age but if it has started in childhood, by the age child reaches 15 years many will get cured, as the lung tissue also grows and body's immunity status also develops, but if it has continued till adulthood then it has lesser chances of complete cure. At the best it can be well controlled. Inhalers are the best medicine for asthma control, and there are really better salts available than asthalin (salbutamol), their use depending upon the severity of asthma. Its important to have a perfect control over asthma to prevent permanent damage it may do over lungs if it is not well controlled.

Sinus problem? Endoscopy of nose, CT scan PNS, etc will help to come to diagnosis. Avoiding allergens, will help you. You may require Antihistaminics Antibiotics, Analgesics and nasal decongestants. May require revision surgery….

My 6 year old daughter has mild asthma which is in check. Her last dose of inhaler was 1.5 years back. But she still grinds her teeth every night in her sleep. Is that ok? Could there be any other problem?

MD - Pulmonary Medicine
Pulmonologist, Mumbai
Grinding of teeth is not exactly a symptom of asthma but you may check her lung function test and look for the presence of any reversibility or increase in lung function after a inhaler dose is given. It will help assess the potential for improvement with inhalers.

Recently I done my tonsils surgery in GNH Hospital Gurgaon. In a month I have the tonsils again. Now tell me what I do. Can I change the doctor or wait? Doctor say they need some time because it's really small so that they can't tell that it's a tonsil or any other thing.

Hello, Tonsillitis is inflammation of the tonsils most commonly caused by viral or bacterial infection. Tonsillitis is common, especially in children. The condition can occur occasionally or recur frequently. Under normal circumstances, as viruses and bacteria enter the body through the nose and mouth, they are filtered in the tonsils. Within the tonsils, white blood cells of the immune system destroy the viruses or bacteria by producing inflammation which also lead to fever. The infection may also be present in the throat and surrounding areas, causing inflammation of the pharynx. Medication: With the help of homoeopathic medication, the surgery can be avoided! Take Schwabe’s Alpha-Tons/ thrice a day daily for 4 weeks. Warm salt water gargle is recommended. Cover your throat with a stole.

Do not sleep under direct fan/ac. Gargle with saline water at lest 3 times daily for next 3-4 days. Also check if you are having enlarged neck glands.
