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. 5. Sleep with an extra pillow under your head-- elevating your head will help relieve congested nasal passages. If the angle is too awkward, try placing the pillows between the mattress and the box springs to create a more gradual slope. 6. Treat that stuffy nose with warm salt water-- salt-water rinsing helps break nasal congestion, while also removing virus particles and bacteria from your nose. 7. Blow your nose often (and the right way)-- it's important to blow your nose regularly when you have a cold rather than sniffling mucus back into your head. But when you blow hard, pressure can carry germ-carrying phlegm back into your ear passages, causing earache. The best way to blow your nose: press a finger over one nostril while you blow gently to clear the other. Homeopathic treatment has very encouraging results. Consult online for details.

Seasonal flu (common cold) is a viral infection. It normally takes 5-6 days & sometimes even longer to go away. Antibiotics have no effect on it. So, have patience. your child isn't a guinea pig, so don't keep changing antibiotics on your own. Contact a pediatrician if needed.

I am 26 years old female and am suffering from chronic pityriasis versicolor for years without any rashes roughness and itchiness there is just only white patches on my upper arm and the skin is not flaky. I have took a complete treatment in 2018 for my fungal infection with ketoconazole lotion ketoconazole shampoo and antifungal tablets for one month but it did not improve my situation. Recently I have visited another dermatologist as I have recently develop another tinea versicolor in my back he suggested me me to take teczine 5 mg and lulifin lotion so my question is should I take teczine 5 mg for my fungal infection or not. Please help me with my confusion as I don't have any allergic reaction I am unsure about teczine 5 mg.

Some patients develops allergic reaction to dead fungal elements. When we start antifungal agents, they kill fungus and liberate dead fungal particles. These particles may cause allergic reaction in some patients. So generally physician give antihistamine (cetirizine/teczine) along with antifungals. But if you not have itching, no need of teczine tablets. In pityriasis versicolor, antifungal treatment will kill fungus but normal skin colour will return in months to years. So no need of too much treatment. 7 day treatment is sufficient.

Hello. Confirm the diagnosis first by a dermatolgist and then treatment can be given accordingly. Better not to self diagnose. For itching of course you can take teczine. Thanks.

You have urticaria, may be due to food items, autoimmune diseases, drugs & various other condition. This condition is usually subsides on taking antihistamine tablets like cetirizine. But this is temporary solution. You should consult to dermatologist & physician for complete evaluation & find out cause. Finally you should avoid causative agents as much as possible or desensitises by consultant dermatologist.

First of al stop taking okra if you are allergic to it. For treatment you can continue taking cetrizine .and if there is visible itchy mild rashes limited to specific are (left hand in your case) den you can use mild potent steroid like fluticasone mix with moisturizer for 7 to 10 days. Thanks.

Hi! itching is a very generic symptom in dermatology. It is due to various reasons depending on the age, sex, skin type ,environmental changes like air ,water ,internal health issues etc. Only depending on the cause ,we can suggest proper treatment ,which can be done after thorough examination. Mean while, use a good moisturising cream to entire body to prevent dryness and use cetirizine tablet in the night to control itching. Please consult online or have direct consultation with your local dermatologist for best advice and treatment.
