Please take Bryonia 200 – once daily for next 3-4 days. 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.

What are the symptoms of asthma? How can we prevent that and what are the precautions should be taken?

BHMS
Homeopath,
What are the symptoms of asthma? How can we prevent that and what are the precautions should be taken?
Dear Lybrate User, Asthma is preceded by the production of histamines in the blood. Histamine is produced due to the entrance of foreign particles in the body. The triggering cause behind the onset of asthma varies in every patient. A detailed case taking along with some blood test results are required to diagnose the proper underlying cause behind asthma. Please conduct a laboratory test of your blood for TC, DC, ESR & IgE. Revert back with the results & consult me privately via Lybrate. In the mean-time you can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture GRINDELIA ROBUSTA Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water.

Take out a partial CT scan of the brain for PNS if the disease is chronic and revert back with the reports.

I am suffering from cough for last 5-6 year l went to the doctor and took some medicine but they did not work then I stop going there and didn't take any more medicine I thought it would be fine automatically but not still I am suffering from this can tell me why and what should I do?

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.

DAA, DNB
Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I understand your concerns. As you have cough for more than 2 weeks you will need to undergo a detailed examination and investigations like chest x ray to look for infection. So better to consult a pulmonologist at the earliest. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

My father has an asthma. What is the effect of using an asthma preventer for long term?

My father has an asthma. What is the effect of using an asthma preventer for long term?
The benefits of using these medications to maintain good asthma control generally outweigh their risks. When steroid tablets are taken for many months or years, harmful side effects are likely . The possible effects are mood changes, thinning of the bones (osteoporosis). Hope this helps u.

Use any good sunscreen that is rated SPF-30 and above (examples – Nivea, Biotique, Neutrogena). Apply sunscreen every 3 hours. Always cover your face with cloth whenever you are going out, especially if on a two-wheeler or rickshaw, to keep it safe from dust as much as possible. Use a face wash at least twice a day. Drink lots of water to keep yourself well-hydrated, 2-3 liters depending on your activity levels and weather. Eat sour fruits like orange, amla. These are rich in Vit C. You can also start oral vitamin C supplements like Tab LIMCEE/CELIN which is available OTC in medical stores. Kindly get a CBC, ESR, xray chest pa view and usg abdomen done and revert.
