I have allergies due to dust and smell what should I do for that?

Is your dust allergy is severe? dust allergies are caused by many substances like pollen, mites, wood etc. Many lifesyle changes can help: avoid using galichas\carpeting instead go for hardwood or vinyl\ tiles floors. Vacuum upholstered furniture such as sofas. Wood, leather, plaster, or metal furniture is better for dust allergies. Replace drapes with roll-up window shades. If you must have curtains, wash them in hot water each season. Get rid of stuffed animals, stuffed furnitures, soft toys, and other dust collectors. Once you get the allergy then it can be cured by use of certain medications which I may prescribe. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Hye I m sufrng from dust allergy form last 1 year so can you give a suitable advice tht wht should I do to prevent it.

Any toxic drug will harm upon long use. Anti allergic med may play with immune system. Need is to start herbal anti allergic medicines capable of enhancing immunity and balancing kapha pitta vitiation causing rashes. Before you contact further for proper treatment, pl start taking neem, turmeric and sugarcandy powders.

Allergies in general & Homeopathy:

Allergy is the term we can use for anything which reacts adversely causing various types of symptoms which are not common. The things which cause allergy are called as Allergens. Those may be in the form of Food[milk, chocolates, sea food, cold items like ice creams, citrus. Like lemonades,ghee made, few nuts, shells,Fish?etc], Season,Environment, weather,Animals/Fur,ticks n mites,Metals,Chemicals, Drugs,Dust, Pollution,Soaps, Detergents, Fragrances, Perfumes, Pollen etc?.

All these may not be causative factor for one person who is already a sufferer.It varies from person to person.The people who are allergic to certain things in any form may not be allergic to other things,& the Allergens which create any problem in one may not show any effect on the other.It all depends purely on individual sensitivity, Immunity levels.In few, Genetic, hereditary factors also plays important role.

Basically, when a person becomes allergic to certain thing, there will be production of antibodies into the body as a general defense mechanism.But then the reaction b/w the allergens & antibodies will cause increased release of Histamine product which results in causing various symptoms. Like sneezings, watery discharge from Nose,Redness of Eyes, irritation, Itching of Nose n eyes.These all called as Rhinitis. But when skin becomes the sufferer like form developing Rash,[Urticaria]Redness, small eruptions, any discoloration etc, with itching, burning, irritation like, then it comes under Dermatitis[may be contact dermatitis].

Majority of allergies start from childhood, as then their immunity levels will be comparatively less.{But it does not mean that adults wont get? it all depends on Immunity, susceptibility of the individuals, which will be resulted by their Life style, any other health problems,stress factors etc].

If care was taken in initial stages, then in majority of cases, there will be no more further progress or c/o.S
First we have to observe the causative factors from which we are getting the c/o.If it can be avoidable, better to avoid; if cant, then,its ideal to go for T/t.
As prevention is better than Cure,Keep children distant from Pets,Fur toys, maintaining good hygiene, avoiding unnecessary medication for small small c/o also,application of different creams,Giving nutritious food,[food containing Vit C, B, A] physical exercises, {for infants? breast feeding for minimum 6-9 months will rise up their immunity levels] all will help them to be free from allergies. Practising the Pranayama, [breathing exercises] will give tremendous results in relieving the rhinitis c/o.
If allergies are neglected in initial condition, then they may progress into Sinusitis, Asthma, Eczema, anaphylactic shock etc.
Frequent usage of antihistamines gradually will decrease the effect of medicine & increase the resistance power of the allergens.Moreover, by the use of antihistamine, patient will feel more drowsy, dull,irritable, even more anxious also some times. If once the action of antihistamine diminished, then there will be no other choice except taking steroids, which will show many more side effects on long run of usage.
In Homeopathy, As Cure always based on the selection of symptoms, analysis of a person, there will not be any side effects.
Drugs like Arsenic album, Nux.Vomica, Calcarea carb, Tuberculinum, Carcinosin, Phosphorus, Rhus.Tox, Bell,Apis, Bromium, Lyssin, Hepar sulph, Nitric acid, Gelsemium,Silicea,Pulsatilla.Etc will help in giving Cure from various allergies.

Note:But always the drug & potency should be under guidance of Expert only.

Hi. I understand your concerns. Asthma is a common allergic problem causing cough, breathlessness and wheeze. It is not curable but can definitely be controlled so that you can lead a symptom free life. You will need to undergo pulmonary function test which is needed for the diagnosis and also to assess the severity of asthma based on which treatment can be started. You need not have any food restrictions if your asthma is under control. Consult a pulmonologist for the same. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

There is no such allergy as allergy in nose ! An attack may be brought on by contact with substances to which the person is sensitive and emotional or dietary factors should not be overlooked. A sudden change of temperature can bring on an attack. May be Your respiration system is allergic to certain allergens which causes breathing problem or it can be due to cold and damp weather, you will have to figure out what causes you breathing problems? It can be cured . Try using (Biochemic) Ars Iod 12X 4 pills 3 times and Nat Sulph 6X 4 pills 4 times.

I m 21 year old. I m suffering from allergies due to this there is a problem in taking breath in night many time. Is this asthma or not because there is more difficult to take breath in night. Any medicine for it.

Ask Free Question
Shortness of breath can be a symptom of asthma but generally in asthma shortness of breath occurs while exerting that is can be during exercising, running or doing down strainois work. If you have shortness of breath at nights that can be due to blocked nose. Keep your air passage clear, take steam before sleeping every day for 5 mins if even after doing this you face difficulty in breathing then kindly get urself checked as doctor can rule out if you re wheezing or not. Which is important sign in asthma. But visit to the doc at turn of shortness of breath only.

Bronchial asthma sometimes is caused or gets worse by certain allergic cause including psychological. Cause is from air, diet, surroundings like danders, domestic animals, etc. Each one may have different such cause. Try avoiding curds and when doing well take it just to detect, confirm and avoid the causative agent so found out. Regular treatment with drugs or as inahaler is a must.

Dust can cause allergy but smoke is irritant.Your airways appear hyperresposive.It is better to use telekast f instead of sinarist as it containe both antiallergic and antiinflamatory.Every one brings out small phelm early morning and three/five/day which a normal protective phenomenon .Our lungs have the capacity to bring mucus and dust inhaled during day to bring upto throat by mucocilliary mechanism and after that one have to cough out it fron throat.
