Dr. my father is suffering with tough cough like an allergy from at least 5 years but now a days it is being out of control no medicine is working now plzzz. Suggest me what should I do.

DAA, DNB
Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I understand your concerns. Your father is most probably suffering from asthma. Asthma is most common allergic condition which is not curable but can definitely be controlled so that he can lead a symptom free life. He will need to undergo pulmonary function test which is needed for the diagnosis and treatment of asthma. See a pulmonologist for the same. Don't worry he will be alright. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

My 5-year-old daughter has asthma. What is the effect of using an asthma preventer long-term? I heard that using it for years might cause bone shrinkage. Is it true?

MD-Pulmonology
Pulmonologist, Dehradun
Your concern is very genuine. Asthma preventer medications have some effect on bone density but in practice of medicine we have to judge the risk benefit ratio. The risk of uncontrolled asthma in this age group overweighs the risk of bone loss. The main aim of treatment of asthma is optimal control. Now this depends upon the stage of asthma and the decision on whether the preventer therapy is required regularly or or not. For this optimal control you need to consult chest physician asap.

I have deviated septum towards left 4 month before I got sinusitis with maxillary and I have deviated sputum I have blocked nose always can not breath from left nose or sometime from right nose and I have ringing on ear every time I feel ear congested so please help me please suggest me something doc thanks in regards.

DORL, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Faridabad
Dear lybrate-user, what you are having is due to nose problem entirely. Weather change and anatomical variation of the nose leads to change in the aerodynamics of the nose hence leads to watery nose this most of the time is over sensitivity on nose to outer environment, and we consider this as allergy all the time. Sinus is a normal roomy structure around nasal cavity its infection called sinusitis, if a person suffering from nasal obstruction along with sinusits and mild to moderate nasal allergies it means most probably he is suffering from dns (deviated nasal septum. Nasal obstruction is because of the deviated portion of the nasal septum (this is the bony partition of the nose cavity. Allergies are because of the hampered muco-ciliary mechanism (normally mucus is produced in the nose to moisten our nose cavity, oral cavity, and help food bolus to move downward, this mucus is basically moves on the cilia of the nasal mucosa) this mechanism gets hampered and mucus start accumulating in the nose and sinus cavity which is why thick mucus comes from nose in patients of nose obstruction and person develops sinusiits. When a surgeon removes the nasal septum deviation has not been removed properly the symptoms persists, and patient thinks that the nose bone has again regrown. It is not because of regrowth but because of half surgery done or due to the non removal of the deviation (reason can be many) nowadays nasal septal deviation can be removed endoscopically. Everything is explained in this, I hope this will benefit you. And for ringing in ears you must get your ears checked which is audiometry at any of the ear centre.

I am having head ache at times at back side of my head. Had sinus problems before and surgery was done years ago. Can you please help with this.

MBBS, MD - Anaesthesiology, FIPM
Pain Management Specialist, Pune
Pain at backside of head is generally due to problem in cervical spine (spine of neck). 1. Intervertebral disc prolapse in cervical spine. 2. Neck muscle strain. 3. Occipital neuralgia: entrapment of nerves at back of head. Diagnosis can be made by detailed symptoms of patient and examination findings. Mri cervical spine may be needed to confirm the diagnosis. Follow these tips to get relief; 1. Take simple analgesics like paracetamol or ibuprofen round the clock for 4 to 5 days. 2. Apply warm water bag on neck if you find it soothing. 3. Do neck stretching exercises after pain is relieved. 4. Maintain good posture during work or reading to relieve neck strain. Avoid reading or computer work with neck bent. Keep text books at eye level. 5. Consult a pain specialist to get relief from severe pain with injection known as occipital nerve block at back of head. If problem is persistent you need to consult again.

I have dry cough for the last 6-7 days. Have taken Dabur Honitus and Mucinex tablets, but still no relief. I've also been gargling with lukewarm water mixed with salt, but no help. Since yesterday, there has also been some blood coming sometimes along with the spit. What should I do? Do I need to get any tests done?

Ph.D - Ayurveda, MD - Ayurveda, Diploma in Diet and Nutrition, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), Diploma Yoga
Ayurveda, Jaipur
Home remedy for dry cough: 5 basil leaves, 4 black pepper, 4 munakka, 5 gms liquorice (mulethi), 3 gms banafsha - boil these in 200 ml of water till it becomes 100 ml. Filter it. Add 2-3 patasha in it and drink lukewarm for 3-4 nights. Sleep well covered. Dry cough will be relieved. Also continue to chew mulethi. You can also have steam with vicks although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking. For that you may consult me privately over lybrate. Please update with your valuable feedback.

How a smoker can keep his lungs in a good condition without hampering smoking for at least of minimum of five cigarettes in a whole day?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
That idea is a pipe dream. Even one cigarette a day is harmful because tobacco smoke contains at least 4000 chemical substances. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. Over a period of time lung patches form and those areas become defunct and will hamper oxygen absorption and you will feel loss of stamina and breathlessness. Things like how much you inhale, how long you retain the smoke and how many cigarettes you smoke will impact the effects of the substance. Ideally you should quit all smoking and live a healthy life, period.
