This could be because of a sinus infection. I would recommend that you see an ent specialist for the same, who may like to ask for a ct scan of the sinuses and head. It could be because of a neurological problem also, but consult an ent doctor first. Regards.

No details. If you are suffering from TB, presumably lung TB. you should have gone to a General or Consulting Physician for proper history taking, medical examination, investigation of blood and X ray and medications to be taken without fail as advised. Follow up in between and even after treatment is completed is necessary to confirm complete cure. There is no other short cut to this.

Take til tail 100g, mix it with 10g rock salt n cook while it becomes lukewarm. Just apply it over chest with light massage especially after getting up in morning hours by which deposit cough inside chest will melt n come out through the mouth. Besides this take steam vapour with divya dhara 4 drops at bed time but during this cover up your eyes bcoz divya dhara consists menthol which can create burning sensation in the eyes. Do gargle with hot saline water 3 times a day. In remedies, take 1/2 tea spoon ful of trikatu powder with warm water 1/2 an hour before lunch and dinner. For 15 days. Follow up me after 15 days.

Definitely seroflo rotacap has got side effect as u know seroflo is bronchodilator so primary action of drug give u relief but successive continuation may leads to sevier bronchi constriction means asthma increased more severe All of us are at a high risk of catching a cold, cough and stuffy nose during the winter season. None of us are totally immune to these winter ailments. Some of common winter season problems are Allergic Rhinitis, Allergic Bronchitis, Asthma, Dry Skin, Psoriasis??..etc Allergic Rhinitis How often have you been troubled by bouts of sneezing and an itchy, runny nose that persistently lands up with you precisely on the day of your important presentation? If this happens more than once in a while with you, it?s about time you sought treatment for your Allergic Rhinitis. Allergic Bronchitis: When bronchitis is triggered by an allergic reaction instead of by a cold or the flu, it is called allergic bronchitis. Like common bronchitis, allergic bronchitis is accompanied by a cough that produces green or yellow mucus. It may also involve a slight fever, chills and a sore chest or throat. To understand what is happening when a person gets bronchitis, you have to know the parts of the respiratory system. When you breathe air in, it travels to the lungs through the trachea. This is commonly called the windpipe and starts in the back of the throat. Once the air gets to the lungs, it moves through smaller tubes that are arranged like branches. These tubes are called bronchi. They connect to smaller passages, the bronchioles, which end in balloon-like alveoli. When a person has bronchitis, the bronchi are irritated and inflamed. Features : Allergic bronchitis starts when the person breathes in something to which they are allergic. This can be a simple pollen, secondhand smoke or a toxic fume from a chemical. The allergy causes the bronchi to become irritated and inflamed. This causes the kind of cough that brings up yellow or green mucus. Causes: The most common causes of allergic bronchitis are commonly found in people's homes. Besides pollen, many people find that their allergic bronchitis is triggered when they breathe in debris left by cockroaches, mold spores, animal dander, dust or dust mites. Warning: Exposure to toxins at work can also cause another form of allergic bronchitis known as occupational bronchitis. Fumes caused by ammonia, chlorine, acids, hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide and bromine can also trigger occupational bronchitis. The main symptom of this kind of bronchitis is a dry cough that does not bring up mucus. Bronchial Asthma: Bronchial asthma is an inflammatory disease of the respiratory airways. People who have asthma are usually allergic to a combination of substances, such as pollen. When exposed to these substances, they begin to experiencing wheezing, difficulty breathing, chest discomfort and episodes of coughing. If treated properly, asthma rarely causes long-term complications, but if left untreated the disease can cause a variety of complications. Asthma can occur at any age. But the Child hood asthma or children asthma is the most common health problem in the present day society. Similarly chronic bronchitis is also another major respiratory problem frequently occurs in children at any age groups. If this chronic bronchitis is not treated properly with constitutional homeopathic treatment then it may turns into bronchial asthma in the future. The common symptoms of chronic bronchitis and child asthma are - frequent attack of cough, cold, fever, tightness of chest, shortness of breath with wheezing sound on respiration, easy fatigue and loss of appetite. The prevalence of asthma is increasing especially in the children. That episodic attack of child asthma and chronic bronchitis can be cured completely and permanently by constitutional homeopathy treatment. The chronic bronchitis and bronchial asthma are not only limited to children but in adult case also. But in comparison to adult the children are more suffer with chronic bronchitis and asthma because children are exposed to more and more allergens such as dust, air pollution, and second-hand smoke. Their immune system is not so much stronger to resist those infections. Another factor is decreasing rate of breastfeeding to the children that deprives the essential substances required for a healthy immune system of a child. So it is also another major factor of weak immune system of the child. Now a day the children more like to all types of junk and fast foods that also one factor of deprivation of essential micro nutrients needed to build up a healthy immune system. The others causes are the genetic or hereditary factors. CAUSES OF CHRONIC BRONCHITIS AND ASTHMA The external environmental factors: Those are - exposure to dusts and pollen, secondhand smoke, faulty diet habits, food allergens, chemicals (pesticides), environmental factors (dust mites, cats, cockroaches, fungi) and temperature intolerance are major factors of creating chronic bronchitis and asthma. Physical exertion or exercise also influences to induce asthmatic episode. Certain infections such as viral, bacterial, or fungal infections often lead to asthmatic breathing too. The Internal Immunological or hereditary factors: Besides the external stimulatory factors, the low immune system of the child also plays an important role in manifesting the symptoms asthma and bronchitis in child cases. There are many factors responsible for weak immunity of a child. Among them decreasing rate of breast feeding that deprives the required essential substances for a healthier immune system, habits of taking more junk and processed foods that also deprives the essential micronutrients required to build up a healthy immune system plays the most important role in developing chronic bronchitis and asthma. Thus the weak immune system of the child is very prone or susceptible to any change in the atmosphere or slightest exposure to any infection may be viral or bacterial or fungi lead to develop respiratory problems. CHANGES OCCUR IN THE RESPIRATORY TUBES OF AN ASTHMATIC CHILD Asthma is a respiratory disorder caused by the inflammation in the airways called the bronchi that lead to the lungs. This inflammation can constrict the airways and tighten, which blocks air from flowing freely into the lungs, making it hard to breathe. Symptoms include wheezing, shortness of breath, tightness of chest, and fatigue on little exertion or play, shortness of breath and cough at night or after exercise/activity. The inflammation of the bronchus makes them very sensitive, resulting in spasm of the airways that tend to narrow, particularly when the lungs are exposed to any allergens, cold air, any smoke, infection and exercise. Things that trigger asthma differ from person to person. Some common triggers are allergies, viral infections, exercise, and smoke. When asthma patient is exposed to a trigger, their bronchus become inflamed, swell up, and fill with mucus. In addition, the muscles lining the swollen bronchus tighten and constrict, making them even more narrowed and obstructed. The inflammation of the bronchus, excess mucus secretion, narrowed airways or bronchoconstriction are the three major changes that occurs in asthmatic bronchus. Anyone can have asthma, including infants and adolescents. The recent scientific reports suggest that patients with asthma are likely to develop more severe problems due to H1N1 infection. Thus for a permanent cure to chronic bronchitis and child asthma conditions, the treatment should be aimed to build up a healthy immune system. If the immune system is healthy and strong enough that can be able to protect the child from various allergens and infection that are suppose to give bad impact in their body. It can only be possible by the constitutional homeopathy treatment. DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BRONCHITIS AND ASTHMA Asthma is a condition where the bronchial tubes go into spasms. When this happens there is coughing, tightness of chest and has difficulty breathing, and wheezing can often by heard as air attempts to get through the narrowed bronchi. There is often no mucus. Bronchitis is inflammation of the bronchi. The patient with bronchitis always has a cough, dry in the early stage and with of sputum in the later stage. There is no tightness or constriction feeling on chest. It can be due to smoking, or any number of illnesses like colds, or flu. COMPLICATION OF BRONCHITIAL ASTHMA: 1. Patients suffering from bronchial asthma often develop a decreased ability to exercise or perform other physical activities 2. Bronchial asthma can cause a permanent change in the respiratory pathways. This process is called airway remodeling, and is a complication of untreated asthma. The constant inflammation causes the airways, or bronchi, to narrow. This adversely affects the patient's breathing efficiency. If asthma causes airway remodeling, then the patient will need to be monitored for difficulty breathing and decreased oxygen content of the blood. 3. Severe, chronic cases of bronchial asthma commonly prevent patients from getting adequate amounts of sleep. This is because the disease often manifests at night, which causes patients to wake up; the hormones that cause the inflammation of the airways can be released even when patients are asleep. This causes patients to wake up wheezing, coughing or breathing heavily. HOMEOPATHIC MANAGEMENT: There are two main variations of the classical approach of homeopathy treatment. One approach applies homeopathic remedies to disease classifications or pathology. This is the so-called clinical approach. The second variation is purely symptom similarity from totality of symptoms i.e. Genetic constitutional approach. Current research indicates that the constitutional and clinical approaches are about equally effective and are the preferred classical methods. Genetic Homoeopathy applies both the clinical and constitutional approach of homeopathy treatment. Clinical approach to give time being relief and Genetic Constitutional approach in order to cure permanently. It is a unique and new approach of Homoeopathic treatment developed by Genetic Homoeopathy from experience and research work. Some of commonly used medicines are Arsenic album, Kali Crab, Antimonium Tart, Apis Mellifica, Silicia, Natrum Sulph, Bromium?etc Should be taken in strict medical supervision.

Your Dr. is right. This is probably allergic cough and cold. In such cases surgery only helps in clearing obstruction and you will need to take medicine to suppress allergy. You are taking right inhaler, continue taking it at least once in the night. Increase your resistance by doing exercise and not by any medicine.
