Doctor of Medicine
General Physician, Surat
If this is the clinical condition of severe illness of asthma then it has to be managed with medicine then no question arises for side effect because disease effects would be much more danger than the side effects of medicines and it is not the criteria for anything

Hello there, for cough, take 2-2 teaspoonful of pranacharya kasantak by mixing it in hot water twice daily. Sitopaladi, praval and tankan bhasm churna taken with honey can also bring relief. Consume this 3 to 4 times a day for relief from dry cough; you can also drink tea with basil leaves or add ginger and black pepper in it. Salted hot water gargling also helps. And stay away from cold drinks and don't take milk when having cough.

Does day care, preschool, etc. Have an effect on children developing allergies or asthma?

Endocrinologist, Delhi
No, asthma and allergies are due to increased sensitivity of an individual against any antigen (object. These are a type of hypersensitivity reaction (class 5) usually mediated by immunoglobulins, ige. So, it is an innate problem. But, the allergens may trigger it so, it can happen even at your home too. Depends upon the type of allergen.

Cough can be due to affected lungs too. Go for a chest x-ray (pa view) and sputum test if you are able to expectorate. You may also take homoeopathic treatment for it.
