do you have family history of asthama? the right medications for you depend on a number of things, including your age, your symptoms, your breathing triggers and what seems to work best to keep your breathlessness under control. Preventive, long-term control medications reduce the inflammation in your airways that leads to symptoms. Quick-relief inhalers (bronchodilators) quickly open swollen airways that are limiting breathing. In some cases, allergy medications are necessary. 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.

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. nt.

I think this is a viral fever and your local doctor has done a great job. In most of the cases fever might take up to 5 days. If child is active alert and there is no other problem after giving meftal p I think you can wait for another 3 days. If fever do not respond after that you must revisit your local doctor for further investigation and management.

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.

fluid collecting in the outer coverings of lungs(pleura) is called pleural effusion. In our country TB is a common cause of it, although other diseases like bacterial infections and systemic diseases also can cause effusions. the fluid needs to be aspirated by syringe and then tested for its cause and then treated

If there is lot of cough in chest, try taking Steam inhalation, for 10 mins 2 times daily, for 1 week, it will help. And now if we talk of drinking tea, Practically, tea do not have any nutritional value in it, and is only causes harm to the body, slowly slowly, body gets addicted to it. So, its my personal advice, stop drinking tea at all. If you cannot, then do not drink more than 2 cups in one day.

There is no way you can nullify the harmful effects of smoking without giving it up. You can try nicotine gums and patches if you wish to abstain. Smoking for 2 months, generally does not predispose to cancer, but it is never too soon, to develop cancer. It generally does not sound like cancer yet, but I would still advise to quit smoking. Its uncool.
