Hello, I am 24 years old, I have chronic cough from past few years. I have got my medical check up done in 2011, which shows that I am suffering from sinusitis. However, these days I get the chronic Cough attack every now and then. And I have to take an Antiallergy (Ketasma) pills to control. Please help me with this.
I am having deep respiration trouble from last 3 years, I still never went for any check up. I am afraid I may have asthma. What must I do first.
I am suffering from allergic sinus from past few years which leads to cold and cough. I need to take pills like Allegra M and montair 10 for remedy everyday throughout the year. Moreover my doctor suggested me to take influenza injection every six months to avoid sinus problem. I preferred taking pills instead of injection. Is it good taking pills throughout lifetime as a remedy for sinus or I should go for injection. Is there any other remedy for treatment of sinus problem.

My Father is 53 years old he is doing dialysis due to kidney failure, but before 10 days he has got affected by pneumonia, now he is diagnosed in hospital. The symptoms like short breathless and chest pains are gradually reduced and he do not have any other symptoms of pneumonia, but the doctors says that the infection level is not reduced yet and it is increasing everyday. My confusion is his activities and symptoms like chest pain and short breathless have improved a lot but doctors result says no improvement in the reduction of virus. What could be the reason for it? Is the problem getting cured? Or becoming worse?
1. It is important to gargle with warm water immediately after nebulization. This measure is intended to wash out the deposits of drugs that if allowed to stay within the oral cavity, will lead to hoarseness of voice and oral ulcers.
2. Following the gargle, drink 2 cups of warm water. This measure will wash out the drugs that is deposited during nebulization on the walls of the esophagus. Thus avoid esophageal irritation caused due to the drug deposited on the inner walls of the esophagus.
3. It will definately help to have a air purifier at home to monitor the particulate matter content in the ambience. This will also reduce the frequency of attacks and enable relatively clean air for the affected, creating comfortable indoors.
4. Take time out to teach children on how to apply the inhaler effectively so as to be able to self-help during acute asthmatic attacks. If available, adrenaline shots of 0.5 to 1 mg may be carried on them, so that in event of severe asthmatic attack, a subcutaneous shot of adrenaline is life saving.
5. Be aware of early signs of an attack, point out these early signs to asthmatic children so that they may stop their activity and take self-help measures.
6. Do not wait for ambulances to arrive in case anybody is in acute asthmatic attack, sit the person in upright position, give them multiple shots through pocket inhaler or start nebulisation with duolin +/- budecort, if the affected person is carrying a adrenaline shot - 1mg subcutaneous should be given on the deltoid of either upper limb of the person.
