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.

Cough during and after food intake. In the last couple of weeks, I get to cough when I eat and after eating and this goes away after some time only to continue again on the next meal. What could be the cause?

The best remedy i can recommend you is as follows Natural home remedy using black peppercorns, sugar candy and liquorice powder: 1. Take 1 tsp black peppercorns 2. Take 2 tsp sugar candy 3. Take 3 tsp liquorice powder 4. Crush them all to powder 5. Eat ½ tsp of this mixture 4 times a day Surely you will get results.

Of all the possible holistic or alternative treatments available, Chronic Sinusitis stands the best chance of being cured by Homeopathy. This has been my personal first hand experience as a homeopathic doctor as well as the experience of hundreds of patients of sinusitis who got cured by Homeopathy. The Homeopathic treatment of sinusitis is far superior as it does not resort to any strong medicines or antibiotics. The homeopathic medicine for sinusitis is mild and has the additional benefit that it does not cause any side effect at all. In fact, it strengthens the immunity of the patient and helps in fighting other infections also. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance

I am facing breathing problem from last couple of days. My father is asthmatic from last 20 years. I also face little bit pro before but from some days it is getting harder, what shall I do? Please advise.

Hi. I understand your concerns. As you have a positive family history of asthma you also might be having asthma. You will need to undergo pulmonary function tests which is needed for the diagnosis as well as to assess the severity of asthma based on which treatment can be started. Consult a pulmonologist for the same. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

I am suffering from right maxillary sinusitis. Sometimes I feel breathing problem. My nose flow back to my throat & cause tonsils & due to this I generally suffer from cold & squeezing.

First of all stat avoiding any cold things esp cold drinks. Take maximum of fruits esp vitamin C rich, which will build up your immunity and wil fight with infection. Take herbal green tea with honey daily. Do hot compress on your face. Use chewingum for facial exercises, it will drain out your accumulated mucus. Take homoeopathic medicines to avoid any recurrences.

Hello lybrate-user you can do warm salt water gargling for throat pain. Lozenges of tusq chewable will help to reduce cough. Avoid curds and buttermilk for few days. Paracetamol for pain can be taken. If still persists after 4 days than do consult.
