5 Basics for Swine Flu Prevention

It is the time of the year where Swine Flu is on the rise, follow these essentials to keep it at bay while you enjoy the weather.

1. Wash your hands
As simple as it may sound, washing hands is the most important factor in maintaining your hygiene as well as defence against several infections and influenza. It's the droplets from coughing or sneezing that spread Swine flu. Not only we must wash hands right before eating and after using the washroom, but also after using a tissue or covering your mouth when you sneeze or cough, even when you are fine. A compulsive and soapy hand wash is the best way to prevent spreading the disease.

2. Cover your mouth while coughing/Sneezing
When you sneeze or cough, you let out the droplets from your mouth or nose. It is ideal to use a napkin or tissue to prevent these droplets from spraying on others; whether or not you are unwell.

3. Stay at home
Be at home to prevent the spread of infection when you are unwell. Also wash your hands as much as you can so that nobody around you is infected. This will not only protect others but also help you recover.

4. Do not touch your face
Your Eyes, Nose and Mouth are direct channels for the virus to pass through. Avoid touching your face to prevent the spread of infection.


5. Skip seeing sick people
Avoid any close contact with people who are infected. A sick person might leave a few droplets on things around him/her. Eg: currency, door knobs, taps etc. It is best to let the person recover with as contact as is essential.
This holds true for kids in particular as they most susceptible to such diseases.

Also, follow these essential Home Remedies to treat Swine Flu

1. Drink Plenty of Fluids
2. Take good Rest
3. Consider Pain Relievers, Avoid Aspirin 
4. Get Vaccinated

Hi Doctor, I am 31 male not taking any medications now. I am a chronic alcoholic (about 12 units 30 ml drinks a day, usually rum) and medium smoker (3-4 cigs a day avg). I had been continuing this lifestyle for the last 6 years or so. Since 1-2 years I have been having cough attacks especially after waking up, which I dismissed as smokers cough. Since the last 2-3 months frequency of cough attacks have increased and can happen any point of day, especially morning and night. It has become severe cough attacks and if its after I consume anything I generally end up vomiting. Today morning after getting up, another round of cough attacks happened and ended up vomiting on bare stomach. I am also irregular in food intake. Can you pls help me.

Dear, your cough attacks shouldn't be neglected as it seems that you have neglected it for last 1-2 yrs. There are a number of reasons that can cause cough-we can divide them into respiratory (lung related) and non-respiratory (not directly related to lung) causes. If you are having fever/sore throat/producing sputum with cough (esp. Yellow/green sputum) then it might be due to some respiratory infection. If you work in a dusty area it might be an allergic respiratory manifestation. If you feel heartburn and acidity frequently then it may be due to GERD. These are only few causes. You can contact me in private consult for detailed history to diagnose the cause.

There are several things you can do to prevent a cold—they are all easy and inexpensive and worth the effort. Wash your hands often-with soap and warm water.The germs stick to the soap and get washed down the drain. Always wash your hands after coughing or sneezing into your hands, blowing your nose, after touching someone who is sick, or when using public restrooms or telephones. Cover Your Mouth and Nose When You Sneeze or Cough- Clean your hands every time you cough or sneeze. Avoid Touching Your Eyes, Nose, or Mouth-Germs are often spread when a person touches a contaminated surface and then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth. Stay Home When You’re Sick-Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, don’t smoke, manage stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food so you can fend off viruses. Take healthy balanced diet...like boiled eggs.daily in breakfast .. Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. Routinely clean and disinfect common areas of your home. Treatment:There is a gradual 1-3 day onset of symptoms. It often starts out as a sore throat, then a fever and coughing. As the cold progresses, the nasal mucus may thicken which is the last stage before the cold dries up. A cold usually lasts for a week or two. But, taking good care of yourself at home can relieve symptoms and help prevent complications if you are otherwise healthy. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn’t need medical treatment. Complications include bacterial infections of the ears, throat, sinuses or lungs which must be treated with antibiotics. In general you should: • get plenty of rest so your body can use its energy to fight the cold • staying at home will keep you from spreading germs • drink plenty of liquids like herbal tea or hot broth/vegetable/tomato soups. Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine which can keep you from getting enough sleep Runny Nose and Sneezing- if you have post nasal drip, gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. Drink extra fluids. (avoid sugary and high calorie drinks) Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation • Tablet Nasorest-P once/twice daily may reduce the amount of mucous. • Humidify the rooms you are in most or your whole house if possible. Cough-Coughing is how your body gets rid of debris and mucus from the airways during a viral infection. Unless your cough is severe or is keeping you from resting at night, it is better not to treat it. A severe cough can be treated with a cough syp, but don’t try to completely stop the cough. There are two types of coughs. Productive and non-productive or dry cough. Non-productive, dry cough. A dry, hacking cough may develop near the end of a cold. Dry coughs that follow viral colds are often worse at night and can last up to several weeks. Take syrup Alex-D for a dry cough. Cough drops can sooth an irritated throat, but most don’t affect the cough. Productive cough. A productive cough is one that brings up mucus from the back of the throat or the lungs. Productive coughs should not be suppressed to the point they no longer bring up mucus. Use syrup Alex. Drink lots of water if you have a productive cough. Head and Body Aches- Take tablet dolo-650 mg for fever once or twice daily
