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? Are there any vitamins.

General Physician,
Hello, it is very important issue while treating asthma in children. As you said your daughter is having asthma, she needs lifelong inhaler therapy. But at minimal maintenance dose that will keep her asthma under control. Though steroids have side effects, it is must to give as preventive therapy. Studies show it causes bones to become soft and brittle but only if taken in high doses. And if you do not take steroid inhaler uncontrolled asthma will cause more problems than steroids. So it is better to continue prevent medicine but at lowest possible maintenance dose.

I'm an asthma patient. Can I run in the mornings when there is fog? Sometimes asthma gets worse and sometimes it gets reduced.

DNB pulmonology, MBBS

Yes you can run. Always try to keep an inhaler with you. You can take 2 puffs, 20 minutes before you start running which will help in preventing the attack.

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.

Hello, Homeopathic remedies for asthma are very effective and can cure asthma permanently . Homeopathic medicines are natural medicines and work by moderating our immune system which usually becomes overreactive in asthma . But i need to know more symptoms related to you as a whole.so that i can make totality of symptoms and prescribe you a better medicine. in the mean time take Ars alb 30, 3 drops once daily and BC No. 02, 5 tabs thrice daily. Revert me with more symptoms.

Dear Sujan, Please see our website healthsolutions.net.in This will explain how often all investigations may look normal but it could be the start of serious problems of the future. Few thing you do.. Reduce to remove any chances of acidity.. monitor your food, eating style, water intake and when you eat/sleep/bath/ exercise etc. Improve you posture as a stoop can put unnecessary pressure on you chest and digestion and feel like various problems. regards

I always have cold and cough throughout the year. What is the solution to get rid of this. Which food (vegetable only) I have to take to recover from it. I have also dust allergy. Whether I can take banana (Mysore banana), Ice cream, butter milk etc.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
Although the information given in inadequate, but by going thru your complaints, its possible that you are suffering from respiratory allergy. You should focus on proper control and treatment of the allergy, rather than restrict food items n hope of getting cured, but that does not suggest that you should keep taking food items that you are allergic, so you should get properly tested to know whether you are allergic to these food items, and then may avoid them.

I am suffering from tb and I am on medication fr d past 2 months I ve been taking akt 4, however I just want 2 confirm that on a particular day I took red capsule bfr breakfast however all the other 3 tablets I took @ night. Will it cause any problem.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
It will not create any problem, but try to avoid it in future. Take your tablets regularly for the prescribed time frame. Do not miss any dose. Taking incomplete and irregular tb treatment has resulted in multi drug resistant tb which would then require more expensive drugs and it also has high failure rate.

There are several things you can do to prevent a cold. they are all easy. -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. -Get plenty of rest/sleep.staying at home will keep you from spreading germs.Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. -Drink plenty of fluids(veg/tomato soups,dal water/coconut water/herbal tea etc), and eat nutritious food(like sprouts/boiled eggs without yolk with milk). Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine which can impair your sleep -Treatment:A cold usually lasts for a week or two. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn't need medical treatment. -Complications like infections of the ears, throat, sinuses or lungs must be treated with antibiotics. -Gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. -Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation. -Tablet nasorest-p once/twice daily may ease breathing. -Do steam inhalation once or twice daily -Cough- For dry cough.Take syrup Alex-D for a dry cough.(1 tsp thrice daily) -Productive cough:it brings up mucus from behind the throat or the lungs.These coughs should not be suppressed to the point that they no longer bring up mucus. Use syrup Alex. -Get chest xray done if cough lasts for more than a week and consult doctor immediately.

From the last 6 days, I have been facing breathing issues. It has become hard to breathe like the shortness of breath or like I have a feeling I can't breathe and this happens the most when I wear a t-shirt which is tight on the chest, sit on a chair, stand and it becomes normal when I move, do something, lie in the bed, eat. Once in a day I feel a pinch pain on left chest as well but that is not the major one. I don't smoke, not much exposed to air pollution. Are these the symptoms of COPD? I have been suffering from anxiety, stress, career pressure etc. Are the above symptoms related to the on-going anxiety? In 2013, almost 2.5 years ago, I took 70 tablets of clenbuterol by Asia Pharma over a period of 2 months for its unofficial use of reducing weight and during that dosage I had muscle cramps in left chest. Are the above symptoms the side effects of clenbuterol? Can that dosage still have effect on me? How can I ensure that they didn't have effect on me, any test? After leaving clenbuterol I lost the weight more than I expected and my cheeks had sunken and before that I had chubby cheeks. Now I am normal but my cheeks are still sunken. One doctor me to take Alfalfa syrup German in homeopathy to get rid of sunken cheeks, shall I take that? What are the above symptoms all about? COPD or stress or side effect of clenbuterol? How can I ensure that clenbuterol had no effect on me?

Clenbuterol hydrochloride is a powerful bronchodilator that is used to treat breathing disorders like asthma and taking it in 2013 has no effect now and your problem is over anxiety and and you need antidepressant or anxiety medication.
