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

Take 11 guava leaves, 11 black pepper, 1 cup milk and one cup water. Put all of them in pot and boil it well, when it reduced to one cup, drink in empty stomach. Take this daily for at least six months or a year. 2.Boil cumin seeds in water and inhale the steam. It helps dilate the bronchial passage. 3.Take 5 gm of ginger, black pepper, cardamom, clove, cinnamon, turmeric and 30 gm of sugar. Grind the mix to a powder. Take half to one teaspoonful and mix it nicely with honey. Take it twice a day 4.Pulses like old rice (rice which is stored for at least one year is called old), wheat, barley, kulattha, mung beans, arhar beans, etc . should be consumed. 5.Honey, warm drinks like herbal teas, spice teas are also okay. 6.Sprouts, nuts and seeds can be taken in moderate amount. 7.The heavy foods and those which make ama should be avoided. This mainly includes milk products like cheese, curd, butter milk, creams, and banana, etc. 8.Oily, greasy and fried foods which are difficult to digest should be avoided. 9.White flour and white sugar products should be avoided. 10.In addition, try to avoid the cold foods, cold drinks and other refrigerated things. 11.Avoid excessive or physically demanding exercise. Yoga and Pranayama can be helpful.

I am 50 years of age. On 26th aug I had taken x ray of chest and some blood test found pulmonary t. B. As per doctor I had started with medicine AKT4. Once again I had checked my blood test of sputum as negative but my white cell of 8900 is reduced to 6400. Now I increased my weight approximately 8kg in 20 days is there any progress in my health please guide me.

As per your history, if your diagnosis of tb was only based upon only chest x ray, it can be called inadequate proof of disease, because chest x ray is not a specific test to detect tb, if sputum test for tb was also done at start of treatment and it was positive for bacteria, then you had a confirm diagnosis. Any ways you have gained good weight after starting medicine, but if your symptoms also have started improving, like decrease in cough & sputum quantity, no fever now, then all these are positive points, anyways white cell count of 8900 as well as 6400 are both in normal range and should not be a cause of worry.

Decrease amount of water you take in the morning. Avoid pollusion. If dirty sputum only in morning without any other problem just ignore it.

Can be fungal infection. Need throat swab examination for fungus. To know cause. Can also due to auto immune disease. Can consult a dentist/ rheumatologist for opinion.
