My sister is a 24 year old. It happened for her to stay in hostel .after few days her friend is diagnosed with tuberculosis. So are there any chances of my sister being affected, though she has no symptoms now. Please advise.

around 40 percent of Indian population is carrying TB infection but only few get disease with this infection and these 40% population have a life time risk of about 10 % to get this disease, so even if she has been exposed to TB patient and has got the infection then also to become diseased the chances are only 10% in life time. so donot worry and tell her to stay happy. but whenever some one gets TB symptoms the patient should get it checked so that disease can be treated at an early stage

Does smoking effects our skin color and face or it raises in breathing problem? Please advise.

Does smoking effects our skin color and face or it raises in breathing problem? Please advise.
Smoking does both. It affects your skin causing wrinkles and skin discoloration. Smoking is a habit that uses the respiratory system to ingest the substance, theregore the lungs are immediately affected and therefore the breathing. Also the carbon monoxide i cigarette smoke reduces he hemoglobin in the blood which reduces the oxygen carrying capacity and you can get easily breathless with minor effort. The smoke has more than 4000 substances and most of them are very harmful. It is a very bad habit, period.

I was diagnosed with chronic pharyngitis and tonsillitis. I had consulted an e.n.t specialist and taken the medicines. But it gave me relief for a very short period. I am again feeling some irritation in my throat which causes severe cough. The cough is very embarrassing which occurs 5 to 6 times a day, at regular time intervals. What should do now. Have also tried many natural remedies and gargles. Now I have also got runny and blocked nose. Please help. I am very worried.

From the last 6 days, I have been facing breathing issues. It has become hard to breathe like the shortness of breath or like I have a feeling I can't breathe and this happens the most when I wear a t-shirt which is tight on the chest, sit on a chair, stand and it becomes normal when I move, do something, lie in the bed, eat. Once in a day I feel a pinch pain on left chest as well but that is not the major one. I don't smoke, not much exposed to air pollution. Are these the symptoms of COPD? I have been suffering from anxiety, stress, career pressure etc. Are the above symptoms related to the on-going anxiety? In 2013, almost 2.5 years ago, I took 70 tablets of clenbuterol by Asia Pharma over a period of 2 months for its unofficial use of reducing weight and during that dosage I had muscle cramps in left chest. Are the above symptoms the side effects of clenbuterol? Can that dosage still have effect on me? How can I ensure that they didn't have effect on me, any test? After leaving clenbuterol I lost the weight more than I expected and my cheeks had sunken and before that I had chubby cheeks. Now I am normal but my cheeks are still sunken. One doctor me to take Alfalfa syrup German in homeopathy to get rid of sunken cheeks, shall I take that? What are the above symptoms all about? COPD or stress or side effect of clenbuterol? How can I ensure that clenbuterol had no effect on me?

From the last 6 days, I have been facing breathing issues. It has become hard to breathe like the shortness of breath...
Clenbuterol hydrochloride is a powerful bronchodilator that is used to treat breathing disorders like asthma and taking it in 2013 has no effect now and your problem is over anxiety and and you need antidepressant or anxiety medication.
