I am suffering from heavy cold and cough from 12 days. I am unable to do my works because of cold. Please suggest me proper medications.
I am having dry cough for last 15 days or so I have already taken a 7 day course of cough syrup antibiotic anti allergic on suggestion of my family doctor. Though the cough has gone down, it is still there. Also from last 2-3 days, every time I cough, I feel extreme itching on my neck and chin. What can be the cause?
cost-phrenic angle unsharp in my right lung. My recent x-ray reports sugest but my x-ray is clean. No sign of any lesions or effusions. I earlier had pleural effusion due to koch's origin. But I became totally cured. And it my treatment for it ended in october only. But I was facing some little bit of irritation in my chest right side so I got a x ray and it suggests dat costophrenic angle is unsharp. Does it means that I have MDR TUBERCULOSIS this time? Or is it some sort of normal chest infection or cold I have got? Well I do not have any chronic cough or low grade fever or any sort of fatigue and loss of appetite or weight loss. Then what is it?
I am 57 year old, male, with asthma since birth. As Doxophylline 400 mg 1-0-1 did not give relief, I have switched over to Theo-Asthalin 1-0-1, and there is relief. I am using Serobid, a long acting beta 2-agonist inhaler + Budecort inhaler with maximum relief. I have a few questions. Will the above drugs suffice for my asthma and are there any side effects of the cartico-steroid inhaler viz Budecort? During the attack of Asthma, I usually have tiredness and body pain with sweating? Are they inter-connected? Will doing breathing exercises help in relieving the symptoms of wheezing? Is meditation also useful? Kindly advice.
If I have tuberculosis and I do not take the medicine continuously what will happen is it ok or not.

As we go about life and routine activities, we may be exposed to a lot of different types of environments. We may have to travel in heavy traffic and may be exposed to vehicular pollution, there may be times when we are at places that allow smoking and that may expose us to smoke from cigarettes. Our nature of work today requires us to be constantly in a situation where we take in industrial fumes and exhausts. Being in any of these conditions temporarily may not be a big matter of worry, but when the incidents get more frequent they may lead to troubles in breathing and diseases such as bronchitis or acute bronchitis.
Acute bronchitis is a condition in which the bronchial tube that carries air to and from the lungs gets inflamed due to different reasons. The biggest hazard related to the inflammation of the bronchial tube is that the patient may suffer from constant coughing and irritation of the throat putting pressure on the lungs. In advanced cases, a bronchial infection may also leave the nodes of the lungs inflamed, making it more difficult for the patients to breathe.
Causes of Acute Bronchitis:
- The most common causes of bronchitis include the infection of the bronchial tube with bacteria or virus, which lead to the inflammation of the tube and subsequent bouts of coughing.
- A habit of smoking cigarettes or being exposed to cigarette smoke as a passive smoker may lead to the infection of the bronchial tube.
- Vehicular smoke and fumes also lead to the inflammation and infection of the tube that plays an imminent role in supplying oxygen to the lungs.
- Finally, when one works in a position where he/she is exposed to chemicals or harmful exhausts on a constant basis may also have to suffer from acute bronchitis.
What is the treatment for acute bronchitis?
Bed rest and supportive care such as reducing coughing are the main treatments for acute bronchitis. In most individuals, antibiotics are not needed, especially those who have as cause viral or environmental factors. For some patients who have wheezing with their cough, beta2 agonists may be helpful (bronchodilators). Perhaps the most useful treatments are directed at reducing coughing symptoms with over the counter preparations containing guaifenesin and mucolytics. NSAIDs are often added to reduce inflammation and help relieve discomfort. However, the American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend giving OTC cough and cold medications to children under two years of age; these medicines may cause harmful side-effects that can be life-threatening to young children.
What natural or home remedies treat and cure acute bronchitis?
- Stay well hydrated by drinking fluids
- Breath humidified air
- Avoid dairy products because they thicken mucous secretions
- Avoid alcohol and caffeine because of potential drug interactions
- Avoid exposure to environmental smoke and other air pollutants
