This cough and cold recurring on changing season is generally due to allergic phenomena however this time bleeding maybe because of severe inflammation you can use vasoconstrictor nasal drops for example otrivin 4 to 5 times a day use a combination of montelukast and levocetirizine one tablet at night time avoid cold exposure consult in ent specialist if it doesn't help in 2 to 3 days.

Home Remdy- 1-Drink tea with basil leaves or add ginger and black pepper in it. 2-Salted hot water gargling also helps. Treatment- 1-Take 2-2 teaspoonful of pranacharya kasantak by mixing it in hot water twice daily. 2-Sitopaladi, praval and tankan bhasm churna taken with honey can also bring relief. .Consume this 3 to 4 times a day for relief from cough; Diet-stay away from cold drinks and milk when having cough.

Its been few days since I'm facing a problem of asthma like condition. Every morning when I wake up I have problem in breathing. Suggest me tips and should I stop smoking?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

STOP SMOKING IMMEDIATELY .. whenever u get an urge to smoke chew chewing gums and Try the tips below:: 1.Take 11 guava leaves, 11 black pepper, 1 cup milk and one cup water. Put all of them in pot and boil it well, when it reduced to one cup, drink in empty stomach. Take this daily for at least six months or a year. 2.Boil cumin seeds in water and inhale the steam. It helps dilate the bronchial passage. 3.Take 5 gm of ginger, black pepper, cardamom, clove, cinnamon, turmeric and 30 gm of sugar. Grind the mix to a powder. Take half to one teaspoonful and mix it nicely with honey. Take it twice a day 4.Pulses like old rice (rice which is stored for at least one year is called old), wheat, barley, kulattha, mung beans, arhar beans, etc . should be consumed. 5.Honey, warm drinks like herbal teas, spice teas are also okay. 6.Sprouts, nuts and seeds can be taken in moderate amount. 7.The heavy foods and those which make ama should be avoided. This mainly includes milk products like cheese, curd, butter milk, creams, and banana, etc. 8.Oily, greasy and fried foods which are difficult to digest should be avoided. 9.White flour and white sugar products should be avoided. 10.In addition, try to avoid the cold foods, cold drinks and other refrigerated things. 11.Avoid excessive or physically demanding exercise. Yoga and Pranayama can be helpful.

Hello dear, prominent bronchovascular marking doesnot indicate any type of lung carcinoma. If you do not have any chest complaints like cough, breathlessness, nothing to worry.
