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

Average weight of child at 6 year is about 20 kg. If your son is around of this you need not to worry since he is active. You may increase some oily and protein in diet. Otherwise it is better to leave him on his own choice of nutritious diet. If he is suffering respiratory problem, consult doctor who after assessing his problem, he may advise if respiratory problem is to do any thing with his weight gain.

Gargling with warm salt water is an effective way to treat a sore throat. Salt can even help kill the bacteria or virus causing pharyngitis. 1.Mix three teaspoons of salt (preferably sea salt) in two cups of warm water. 2.Gargle with this solution. Do not swallow it. Spit the water out after gargling. 3.Do this several times daily for one to two days. If you had taken higher antibiotics - it has dried your cough in chest and hence the consequences. Take Hepar sulph 30 - thrice daily 4 pills for next 7 days Continue treatment.

There is no such thing that you may not suffer from t. B, if you acquire the infection from another person then there is possibility and in that case you will be put on cat 2 regimen. But don't worry keep good lifestyle healthy diet avoid direct contact with any p. T. B patients and you are safe.

There are several things you can do to prevent a cold. they are all easy. -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. -Get plenty of rest/sleep.staying at home will keep you from spreading germs.Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. -Drink plenty of fluids(veg/tomato soups,dal water/coconut water/herbal tea etc), and eat nutritious food(like sprouts/boiled eggs without yolk with milk). Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine which can impair your sleep -Treatment:A cold usually lasts for a week or two. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn't need medical treatment. -Complications like infections of the ears, throat, sinuses or lungs must be treated with antibiotics. -Gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. -Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation. -Tablet nasorest-p once/twice daily may ease breathing. -Do steam inhalation once or twice daily

sleeping 4 to 6 hrs is totally normal. but the red eye is a concern. also you are having fever. these may signs of eye infection . a proper history and evaluation would be needed to come to a diagnosis. feel free to consult if you would like to know more.

Have sneezing problem since last 10 days. It subsides after taking vozet but starts again next day. I am also having slight itching problem since last 2-3 months which may occur in hand or leg, mostly towards evening, it becomes red in that part and then goes away in an hour. Should I go for IGE or CBC or any other test to determine if it is some allergy.

You are allergic to something which you only can help in identifying it. As you have stated it manifests mostly in evening with reddish eruption which settles after some time, you must be coming in contact with this allergen around afternoon. You have to revisit your daily schedule and try to pin up something from everything which directly touches you, from clothes to chemicals, soaps, creams, oils, food items etc. Testing ige may only establish the presence of immune response due to hypersensitivity but is not going to clinch the cause. A patch test for common allergens is available but may not be of much help because generally it puts finger on multiple items and densitization to all is a long procedure. The best way is to have minute observation of everything coming in your contact especially those on the day you have these manifestations. If there are days of remissions, then the suspected allergen should also be absent from your list on those days and on the day of manifestations the allergen exposure will be there. In this way by trial and error, the most possible culprit can be identified and its elimination will solve the problem without need of any medication.

In homeopathy, you can get good results b a bit long time t/t, depending on the intensity and chronicity of the disease. Without proper understanding of the c/o, symptoms, you cant get better results. But you can try grindelia pentarkan from schwabe company daily[10-15 drops in 1/4th cup of luke warm water], with biocombination-2, daily twice. 5-5 tablets. For 1 month and then let me know the progress, but you need a constitutional remedy also along with these. But for that we need more information in detailed way.
