Sir mujhe 2 din se jukhaam hai or bhukhar bhi aa rahi hai please koi home remedy bataye?
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

Hi, I am 34 years old and I am suffering from sneezing and nasal discharge for many years. Last year I got septoplasty done on the recommendation of an ent doctor. For around 9 months after that, I was better. But since last 1-2 months, the problems have surfaced again with almost same intensity. I feel heavy itching nostrils, sneezing and nasal discharge almost everyday. Sometimes the situation persist for whole day. I consulted one ent specialist around 2 months ago who suggested me to get a" serum ige level" test done. He told me that based on that test, allergy shots would be given. Then I got the idea that may be I need to go to an allergy specialist for cure to my problem. But before that I have some questions, 1. Are there allergy shots which can give relief for sometime. 2. What is the most relevant speciality of doctor in my case. 3. Is there a complete or permanent cure for this problem. 4. How long would be the treatment. 5. Are there any side effects.

Symptoms of flu are mild fever,running nose ,cough,feeling of restlessness and body aches. Solutions of hair fall-find out the cause first, Thyroid disease, anemia,malnutrition.. It can be local also like infection on the scalp area,dandruff. Solution will be according to disease. If nothing comes out ,then apply vinegar on scalp,let it stay for an hour. wash it with a shampoo with ketaconazole-easily available in market. take calcium and Vit. D supplements in addition to a high protein diet. treat the disease like thryroid,if positive. get back here with a feed back.

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.

I am 16 years old female.

Yesterday I even had vomiting. I had frequent headaches and abdominal pain sometimes. What is wrong with me? Please help me. Is it a chronic disease or just from stress?
