After performing the tests my AEC, ESR, DC levels are normal whereas my ESR count has raised to 25. Is this something to worry about? Thanks in advance for the needed advice.

General Physician, Faridabad
There are several things you can do to prevent a cold. they are all easy. -Always wash your hands after coughing or sneezing into your hands, blowing your nose, after touching someone who is sick, or when using public restrooms or telephones. -Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough. -Get plenty of rest/sleep.staying at home will keep you from spreading germs.Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. -Drink plenty of fluids(veg/tomato soups,dal water/coconut water/herbal tea etc), and eat nutritious food(like sprouts/boiled eggs without yolk with milk). Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine which can impair your sleep -Treatment:A cold usually lasts for a week or two. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn't need medical treatment. -Complications like infections of the ears, throat, sinuses or lungs must be treated with antibiotics. -Gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. -Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation. -Tablet nasorest-p once/twice daily may ease breathing. -Do steam inhalation once or twice daily -Cough- For dry cough.Take syrup Alex-D for a dry cough.(1 tsp thrice daily) -Productive cough:it brings up mucus from behind the throat or the lungs.These coughs should not be suppressed to the point that they no longer bring up mucus. Use syrup Alex. -Get chest xray done if cough lasts for more than a week and consult doctor immediately.

Hi. My daughter is having sinusitis. Please give me some opinion to get rid of this.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinuses caused by virus, bacteria, fungus, allergy or an autoimmune reaction. Although uncomfortable and in some cases painful, it will often right itself without the need for medical intervention. Sinuses are hollow spaces behind the bones of your face. There are four pairs of sinuses. Allergies can cause sinusitis. Chronic sinusitis can last more than 12 weeks. Symptoms can include loss of sense of smell, halitosis and toothache. Home treatments such as steam inhalation can help the symptoms. If symptoms are particularly persistent, antibiotics may be prescribed. There are a number of reasons sinusitis can occur, including viral and bacterial infections. Doctors often refer to sinusitis as rhinosinusitis.

After eating food I feel difficulty while breathing so I have to breathe heavily. What has happened, pls suggest some remedy?

Most probably you are suffering from gerd (gas trouble). Take lighter meals at dinner, do not lie down soon after taking food, drink less water with meals, take less spicy and less oily food. Cut down on tea and coffee, and no tobacco and alcohol, helps many patients of gerd.

Hi take ginger tea mixed with 2-3 crushed garlic cloves. Massaging the chest with warm sesame oil mixed with salt helps to loosen the phlegm deposited in the chest, especially, when followed with steam inhalation. Take shwas kuthar ras twice a day. Pranacharya asthamin capsule 1-1 twice a day. And pranacharya shwas vikarasav 2-2 tsf twice a day. 1-1 drop of cow ghee in both nostrils at night time before sleep. Take hot water steam.

I am 65 years old. I suffering from cough and asthma prov. Last 2 year what I do?

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Lot many causative factors are there for shortness of breathing, 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,(biochemic) cuprum ars alternate with ferrphos, kali phos and mag phos if one appears to be more effective than the others, then you may take more of it. Requires detailed questioning so as to ascertain your personality and to treat you symptomatically. Treatment is available, safe and without side effects in biochemic system of medication. Consult me in private.

I have a breathing difficulty problem. Tests like ECG, Stress ECG, 2D ECO, LFT, Chest CT scan are all OK. I was under treatment for depression and was treated with Bupron SR 150, which I had stopped now. I was OK for some time but now problem persists. What next?.

Get a simple breathing test called spirometry done which will reveal any underlying obstructive airway disease like asthma. If you feel like impending doom with muscle spasm during breathlessness then get an ABG done during the episode. Visit with ABG report then.

MS - ENT
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Gandhinagar
Ulcers in mouth: It is also known as apthus ulcers. They are very painful and restrict chewing and swallowing due to pain. Mainly it is due to Dyspepsia, consumption of heavy Antibiotics which kills normal Bacterial flora which makes vit B complex for our body. It is also due to mental tension. I have seen so many exam going students having ulcers in mouth and when exam is over it is cured . It is different from cancer ulcer as cancer ulcer is not painful and it doesn’t heal. High dose of Vit B , pain killing oral paste, Tratment of constipation, Stopage of Heavy antibiotics added to it , etc as per requirement helps the pt.

You maybe suffering from viral or allergic rhinitis and pharyngitis. You need to avoid the cause of your allergies and also take anti allergy medications. Please consult for prescription. If you have an infection and have fever you will need to do a course of antibiotics. For now do warm saline gargle and steam inhalation 3 times a day.
