I am suffering from dysentery continuously for two days along with fever and dry cough. I like to cure myself without tablets. I like to know first aid also.

MBBS
General Physician,
This is may be due to having wrong ingestion of wrong food. For which you have loose motions. It is better to consult a doctor near your locality. However you should make suresure that you don't have dehydration by taking lots of fluid or water or oral fluids. To prevent dehydration. Have homemade freshly prepared lemon juice which is rich in vitamin c thereby increasing your body autoimmune system which prevents infection.

Thanks for your query. Antibiotic become necessary only when infection flares up. When you have infection there is no other substitute for an antibiotic. Please provide details about what symptomes you are having at present and I can advise accordingly. Please feel free to ask a private question.

As you knows that this disease is life time but some products that supports you to live life happily. I am advising you take swasni avalah 1 spoon in morning after breakfast end 1 spoon after dinner end take water after 30 minutes for lifetime (free advice to you) after 6 to 12 month you will fill energy in you. After 5 years you may not have this problem. Do pranayam, walking slowly 2 km in morning end 2 km after dinner or as you are able to walk. Inhaler do not stop automatically reduce if you fill normal interwell increases automatically.

Hi this is dr akhilesh There is no definite remedies for bone to decrease, many ENT specialist do septoplasty for it but sometimes it doesn't work so go ahead with symptomatic treatment of it rather than hunting for surgery.

Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then do reply back for medications. Being also a general physician, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary tips taking into account patient preferences.
