Inhalers are must in the treatment of asthma. Do not stop them until suggested by a doctor. You can take expectorant along with inhalers.

No fever only dry cough not counting at night not continuously coughing but it persisted since last 1.5 years.

1. Do saline gargles daily. 2. Whenever possible do steam inhalation also. 3. Cover your nose and mouth with hanky for at least 30 sec when you go in dusty areas also when you go in and out of ac. As our nose is the most sensitive part of our body, when there is temperature difference between two rooms or inside n outside, then if we not protect our nose, it gets affected. 4. Drink hot liquids --hot liquids relieve nasal congestion, prevent dehydration, and soothe the uncomfortably inflamed membranes that line your nose and throat. Homeopathic treatment has very encouraging results and gives relief in long term consult online with details.

Amrox-ls syrup is a combination of three medicines: ambroxol, levosalbutamol/levalbuterol and guaifenesin, which relieves cough with mucus. Ambroxol is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out. Levosalbutamol is a bronchodilator. It works by relaxing the muscles in the airways and widens airways. Guaifenesin is an expectorant which decreases the stickiness of mucus (phlegm) and helps in its removal from the airways. Together, they make breathing easier.

No need to take any medicines before taking vaccine. After taking vaccine, to reduce pain you can take paracetamol if developing fever, can continue paracetamol.

There is no medical proof and is only an unexplained rumour that we should not use soap and talcum powder with menthol and there is no connection between all.
