You have to take lrta drug that blocks the release of chemical mediators in allergy and this cetrizine that you take only blocks the histamines. We can chat personally.

Dear lybrate-user there is no cure for rabies, only way is prevention by taking rabies vaccination. Kindly vaccinate with 5 doses day 1, 3, 7, 14, 28. Human rabies immunoglobulin should also be taken as dog in not vaccinated. Kindly go to your nearest doctor and he will do the needful thankyou.

With no inclination to take medicines try to avoid dusty surroundings, wear a face mask, take good rest for 2-3 days. Try instilling warm salt water in nostrils twice a day for couple of days. If Yoga enthusiast try 'Kapalabhati ' If no relief and fever persists better see your doctor.

I am 34 year female. I suffer from breathing problem when I get tensed or if i am exhausted. Is this related to asthama?

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
An attack may be brought on by contact with substances to which the person is sensitive and emotional or dietary factors should not be overlooked. A sudden change of temperature can bring on an attack. Some alleviation of the symptoms may be obtained with the use of the appropriate tissue salts. Consult privately so as to question you to ascertain your personality and ailment. Permanent cure is available in biochemics. In the mean time try cuprum ars, kali phos.

Is asthma curable?

MBBS, PhD (Clin. Immun. )
Allergist/Immunologist,
Asthma can be managed with appropriate and timely therapy in most cases. Since almost 80% of the cases are of allergic origin, it is important to first get your allergy profile done using the allergy skin prick test: environmental panel. Once the source of your allergy is known, preventive measures would play a major part in your asthma management and need for medication is likely to reduce drastically. In some cases, patients could get relief even without medication for a long time, just by avoidance.

My friend suffering dust allergy for ten years, What are good Treatment options? How effective is each treatment option? What are the benefits versus risks of each treatment option?

MBBS
General Physician, Cuttack
1. Dust allergy could be because of so many agents (it could be due to pollen, mite, feathers, dander, mold, droppings of birds, pet hair/feather/fur cockroach etc) 2. I advise you to do an allergy test after consulting an allergy specialist/immunologist to find out the agent which is causing dust allergy. 3. Follow the advice and treatment given by allergy specialist/immunologist. Treatment 1. Anti histamine like levo cetrizine 1 tablet at bed time 2. Decongestant steroidal nasal dropspray like rhino cort nasal spray one spray to each nostril three times daily, 3. Remove wall to wall carpet in bed room, 4. Keep pets out of bed room/house 5. Minimise house hold humidity 6. Keep home clean, ensure good ventilation, vacum cleaning of carpet, furniture, drapperies, wash bed linen frequently in hot water, instal a/c, 7. Use face mask when going out

Homeopath,
Dear Mr Sandip....in case of acute attack of Asthma you must use Asthalin inhaler......At the same time I would advise to conduct a laboratory diagnosis of your blood for TC,DC, ESR.....in major cases of asthma it is seen that the Eosinophil level of blood remains elevated.....If your Eosinophil level reveals to be higher than normal level then you could take Homoeopathic PYROGEN 1M, 5 drops thrice daily in empty stomach.

When steroid tablets are taken for many months or years, harmful side effects are likely and almost inevitable. The list of possible effects is long; it includes mood changes, forgetfulness, hair loss, easy bruising, a tendency toward high blood pressure and diabetes, thinning of the bones (osteoporosis), suppression of the adrenal glands, muscle weakness, weight gain, cataracts, and glaucoma. After being swallowed, these tablets are absorbed from the stomach into the bloodstream and taken not only to the bronchial tubes (to treat asthma) but also to every other part of the body. Their effects are widespread. On the other hand, only miniscule amounts of steroid medication enter the bloodstream after inhaling it. The reasons for this difference include the following. First, steroids used for inhalational treatment of asthma are designed not cross well from the surface of the bronchial tubes into the bloodstream. Somewhat like applying a steroid cream to the skin, they are poorly absorbed from the surface into the blood. Second, only very small amounts of steroid medication are delivered from the inhalers with each dose or" puff" less medicine is needed when it can be directly applied to the affected area. We measure the amounts of steroids inhaled in micrograms, which are units one thousand times smaller than the milligrams by which we measure prednisone or medrol tablets. When breathed in, some steroid medicine remains in the mouth and can be swallowed into the stomach and from there absorbed into the bloodstream. You can minimize any effect from steroids left behind in your mouth in two ways. First, use a spacer tube with your steroid spray. (a spacer can not be used with budesonide [pulmicort] dry powder inhaler.) medicine that would otherwise land on your tongue and mouth stays in the spacer chamber. The part of the spray that passes through the spacer also tends to pass through your mouth and proceed down onto the bronchial tubes. Second, rinse your mouth with water after inhaling the steroid spray. Rinsing removes any medicine residue from your mouth. The portion of the medicine that helps your asthma remains undisturbed on your bronchial tubes. So much for the theory; what about the actual experience with steroids in inhaled form? the current generation of steroid inhalers first began to be used in the mid 1960s. For more than three decades they have been prescribed for millions of people with asthma and other lung diseases worldwide. No serious long-term adverse effects have emerged. For adults, given in the usual doses, they do not cause degeneration (atrophy) of the normal tissues of the respiratory passageway. They do not predispose to lung infections. They do not cause cancer, diabetes, or high blood pressure. We need to look more carefully at the two phrases used above" for adults" and" in the usual doses" children's bones may be sensitive to the very small amounts of steroids that can enter the bloodstream after inhalation. There is currently debate? and considerable on-going research? to determine whether in children inhaled steroids might slow bone growth and reduce a child's ultimate height. Also, when given in very large doses (many puffs from a high-concentration steroid inhaler), the amount of steroid medicine that spills over into the bloodstream can become significant. Although the effect is small, like a very small dose of prednisone, over the years this small effect can potentially add up to serious harmful effects. High doses of inhaled steroids taken for a long time can probably predispose to cataracts, glaucoma, and thinning of the skin and bones. As a result, your doctor will probably only have you take high doses of inhaled steroids as a means to avoid steroid tablets. And he/she will constantly work with you to attempt to reduce the dose of inhaled steroids to a more conventional and safer range. Remember that not taking inhaled steroids for fear of side effects may have real consequences that are far worse than potential effects in the future; namely, asthma symptoms and risk of asthma attacks now. Severe asthma attacks are usually treated with steroid tablets, which all agree have the worst side effects.

Asthma: Debunking Myths About Using Inhalers

FHM FELLOWSHIP IN HIV MEDICINE, MD, MBBS

Asthma: Debunking Myths About Using Inhalers

Asthma is a chronic lung condition wherein the air passage gets blocked or constricted due to the production of extra mucus. It is an age old condition which has been creating problems for people since a long time. Despite the seriousness of the condition, there are various myths people tend to believe about asthma.

Here are a few myths about asthma and the usage of inhalers:

  1. Regular Usage of Inhalers is Addictive: This is a total myth. Using inhalers is not at all addictive, it is a necessity. Just because you use your inhaler regularly does not mean you are addicted to it.  Just like brushing your teeth every day isn't an addiction, taking your daily medicine from an inhaler isn't an addiction as well. Using an inhaler will just help you with your asthma condition.
  2. Oral Medicine Gets Better Results than Inhalers: Absolutely not. In fact, it is proven that inhalers give better results than oral medications. Oral medication takes longer to act during a sudden asthma attack while inhalers deliver the drug directly to the lungs.
  3. Inhalers Are Meant For Severe Asthma Cases: Well, this again is not true. Inhalers are used for treating asthma. Period. Asthma is a condition where your lungs inflame which is best cured with steroids, and the easiest way to have steroids administered to you is through the inhalation method. When you use the inhalers, the steroids are delivered directly to your lungs. They also have a minimum number of side effects when administered through inhalers.
  4. Asthma is Curable: You might tend to think that asthma can be cured with the help of proper medications. You might think that asthma is not a constant condition. But it is not what you think. The symptoms of asthma might not be present all the time but that doesn't mean you do not have asthma. Asthma is a long-term condition where the airways swell up causing you to suffer from breathlessness. If you suddenly stop taking your daily medicines because the symptoms have not surfaced, then it will take you a long time before you will be able to totally recover from the next attack you suffer from.

If you have asthma, remember to take your medicines daily and timely.

What medicine is best for the treatment of asthma?

Ayurveda,
Hi asthma it will be the result of long lasting allergy especially always in upper respiratory tract like sneezing, dust allergy, tonsillitis, nasal dripping, mainly due to deviated nasal septum which reduces lung capacity and causes spasm in bronchioles. So these initial symptoms if it is not treated earlier may manifest as bronchial asthma. Mainly it start with seasonal rhinitis (nasal drip or sneezing etc) so you can take this combination for first 11days1) dasamoolakatutrayam kwatha (200ml)+vasaristam100ml+kanakasavam100ml+kasturi kalparasayam114ml+punarnavasavam100ml+15swasanandam tablet and15dhanwantaram tablet mix all and crush two tablets 15each in abig bottle and drink it 20ml thrice daily after food 2) take agasthya rasayanam 1tsp with 1tsp rajanyadi choornam early morning b/w6- 7am empty stomach only. Repeat the same for another 11days and then do slight pugation once in a week for internal of two week. And then take only same rasayan and chyawanaprasam daily 1tsp twice.
