For Asthma Avoid your triggers may be food, chemicals,pollution, perfumes etc Decontaminate your decor. Maintain optimal humidity Clean regularly ,Use washable curtains and blinds No pets / carpets vacuum at least twice a week. Wear a mask or have someone else do the cleaning. Regular exercise Maintain a healthy weight If your asthma is worsened by cold or dry air, wearing a face mask can help.

Hello iam ranjeet singh, my question is that my grandfather is uncomfortable to take breathing generally at night, and sometimes the blood comes out from the nose. What should I do. I hope you will understand the problems faced by my grandfather. Thankyou.

DAA, DNB
Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I understand your concerns. Mostly your grandfather has hypertension and cause for nose bleed is most likely to be due to uncontrolled hypertension. Breathlessness also can be due to it. Consult a doctor at the earliest. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

This may be chronic sinusitis. You need evaluation by nasal endoscopy and perhaps a ct scan. Based on this treatment will need to be suggested.

Try taking steam inhalation for 3 times a day. To know how to take steam, please read instructions below to know - how to take steam inhalation for best results. If problem is not solved in 2-3 days, you may need additional medicines. Techniques to steam 1) Boil a pot of water. 2) Pour water into a large flat pan or bowl. If you use a casserole, water will remain warm for longer duration. 3) Place your head over the bowl at a distance of 1 feet. 4) Cover your head and bowl with a large towel (like a tent), take long breath through your nose and breath out through mouth. Take a break every 1-2 minutes until you feel relatively cooler. Do it for 10 minute twice or thrice a day. If you feel that the treatment is getting too much for you, raise the towel so that fresh air is brought into the area and breathe through your mouth a couple of times and then resume Take care - Take all precautions while dealing with hot water. Also, keep children away and wan others that you are dealing with boiling hot water. Other way is - by an Electric steamer available in market and take steam through it. It is more convenient. "

I am 22yr old boy. I am suffering from severe fever, we tested to near by doctor they told to check to ent doctor. I went and finally they told sinus. It is a problem.

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Hello, sinusitis is a common affliction these days occuring as a result of either a structural deformity in your nose cavity or complication of diseases like common cold. The problem you are facing can be solved adequately by a proper course of antibiotic, nasal decongestants and steam inhalation. However if the symptoms persist, or if you problem is because of some structural deformity such as a nasal polyp, surgery maybe necessary. In case of repeated attacks of sinusitis, please consult a qualified ent specialist to seek out the cause. For this, a nasal endoscopy may be necessary. Please go prepared for that. Thank you.
