I am suffering from continuous coughs for few days. Can you suggest what should I do? What are the reasons of having this kind of coughs?

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
There can be many reasons for long duration coughs ranging from simple post viral coughs to tuberculosis and allergies. So a proper evaluation is needed of the cause, then if you treat it the cough gets relieved.

I am suffering from extreme cough. Already 1 week has been finished and still I am uncomfortable. Please suggest an easy solution.

Hello, If you have cough without sputum (sputum is a mixture of saliva and mucus coughed up from the respiratory tract), I would like to advise you to - 1. Take proper rest/ drink lot of fluids and take proper homemade food. 2. Do warm Saline gargles 2-3 times a day for 2-3 days, if there is sore throat. 3. Take a cough syrup (Grilinctus OR Banadryl) 10 ml three times a day for 2-3 days.

Understanding the Types of Tuberculosis

Understanding the Types of Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis is a highly infectious and potentially fatal disease which primarily affects the lungs. It is highly contagious and can infect other people via the tiny water droplets released by an infected person while coughing or sneezing.

There are two types of tuberculosis, that are pulmonary tuberculosis and extrapulmonary tuberculosis:

1. Pulmonary tuberculosis is a type of disease in which bacteria invade your lungs. It is possible that the bacteria in your lungs could kill you. However, fortunately if you have been taking the right medicines for your bacterial infection you can get cured immediately. The name of the bacteria which causes tuberculosis is known as the Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

It is worth noting that latent tuberculosis has no symptoms and there is no way you can pass it to another person either. However, it is still crucial that you take treatment for it. If you do not complete your treatment, then your tuberculosis will progress to a very dangerous form of tuberculosis. This is known as multidrug-resistant tuberculosis. Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis is sometimes abbreviated as MDR TB.

2. Extrapulmonary tuberculosis is when tuberculosis affects in parts of the body other than the lungs. There are many parts of the body which tuberculosis can affect, including the lymph nodes, nervous system as well as the bone and joints. Luckily, it is easily curable.

Extrapulmonary tuberculosis has pretty much the same symptoms as pulmonary tuberculosis. This is because extrapulmonary tuberculosis is the exact same disease which occurs to the patient, it is just that it affects a different body part. Therefore, the exact treatment recommended for pulmonary tuberculosis can be used to cure extrapulmonary tuberculosis. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Lung Cancer in Women

Lung cancer occurs at slightly younger age in women than in men. Adenocarcinoma is the commonest type of lung cancer in women. It warrants testing for some molecular markers which form the basis of targeted therapies. Thus lung cancer in women behaves biologically and clinically different from that in men

Women should take care of their health, stay away from tobacco and think positive

Sir continue cough for past few days. please give suggestion.

Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. 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.

You previously had Tuberculosis which is healed now but left residual scarring. It has made your lungs weak and may be the cause of tightness. Otherwise there could be fresh infection or inflammation

I am 70 years of age working male residing in mumbai. Right now I have no problems. But because of pollution, we all are getting less oxygen. At 70 our lungs are not working 100 %. Can we use oxygen cylinders at night say for 2 hours everyday to compensate oxygen deficiency? does this use of oxygen cylinder has any side effects in long run? please advice.

MD - Pulmonary Medicine, MBBS
Pulmonologist, Pune
Hello, your concern about oxygen is right but this is not a solution for your problem. Oxygen is a medicine and you should use it very cautiously. Unnecessary oxygen supplementation will not help and may cause side effects like fatigue (tiredness), and morning headaches. It dries up your mucosa and results in infection. Most importantly it can suppress the drive to breathe as body gets readymade oxygen from outside. So it is not advisable to use oxygen until your blood oxygen level is below subnormal. It also poses a fire risk if not handled correctly at home.

I am facing problem with cough in my chest from long time. I had many cough syrup. But all are useless. Due to cough congestion I am not able to talk properly. Please suggest best way to avoid that problem. As soon as possible. Thanks.

Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I understand your concerns. You may be having asthma. Asthma is a common allergic problem causing cough, breathlessness and wheeze. You will need to undergo a detailed evaluation with chest x ray and pulmonary function test which is needed for the diagnosis and also to assess the severity of asthma based on which treatment can be started. Consult a pulmonologist for the same. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

As you have dust allergy most probably your irritation is also due to allergy. Anti-allergic eye drops will give you relief from itching but i suggest you consult a pulmonologist who specializes in allergic disorders and get yourself desensitized or start taking anti allergic tablets like montelukast
