Last year I had bronchitis. I was given nasal spray and mouth pump. My cough is controlled but sometimes I feel shortness of breath in every 2 to 3 months. So I feel good when I use pump and nasal spray at each time in 2 to 3 months. Is it harmful to use.

Pump (ihnaler) is not at all harmful but I advise you to continue the use of inhaler for next 15 days whenever you r having shortness of breath.

Hello lybrate-user there is no permanent treatment for sinusitis. It occurs due to allergy so as you cannot get rid of allergens like pollen dust its unlikely to cure it for ever. Jus that you can take precautions to avoid dust exposure, avoid strong odours, wash the linen regularly avoid pets. If sinusitis is secondary to deviations of central partition in nose you can try for surgery options. Take care.

I have a sinus problem. This problem make any allergy. And some time paining for near by nose.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Dear lybrate user sinusitis is inflammation of sinus spaces which are hollow spaces in our facial bones and become infected due to improper drainage or blockage of sinus openings into nasal cavity ,since killing of bacterias through antibiotics is not a permanent cure since bacteria grow secondary to favourable habitat thus it needs a constitutional treatment for permanent cure

Can be allergic rhinitis. Yellow secretion can be due to infection. Get nasal secretion tested for culture for pyogenic and fungal infction.

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.

I have a problem of asthma. I have to take inhaler every day problem is more in winters. So please suggest what can I do.?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
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. Boil cumin seeds in water and inhale the steam. It helps dilate the bronchial passage. 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. Also herbal medicines can help to get relief from asthma upto 80%.

I am 23 year old, and have very bad asthma problem. Tried many sort of treatment but switched again back to inhalers. Was having problem of eczema & childhood which was treated through allopathic treatment at that time I didn't had asthma problem. But later after shifting to kerala my asthma problem started & used to take inhalers. Wen I was 17 I went for Ayurveda treatment with so much of restricted time table for certain food items for 2 year & I got better at initial stage I got all my allergy on my skin which so hard but doctor was saying thats to get cured with it. & only if I cure the inner allergy I would get better of asthma. I was so thin at that time & we I started curing asthma I also had put on my weight n was happy to get changed with better immunity. But suddenly I got a throat infection which really was under treated n he strictly advised not to take antibiotics which made it return frequently n I had developed a swelling on my leg n wen I went through a blood test I got aso titre so high. Which made me discontinue his treatment n I started taking pencillin400 n reduced d doses n now cured it completely but my asthma had returned severely. Then another blood test developed d problem of hypothyroidism. I started taking thyrox 150 n now d dose of 50. For this after 2 yrs I consulted a homeo doctor which was a nightmare for me as he said asthma is linked with thyroid problem n asked if I had any skin problem I said before I had he then prescribed some medicines n wid in a few days I got a bad itching on my fingers ful flare ups whole over my body oozing n weeping legs n hands I cant even sleep at night due to itching n that doctor was sounding angrily wen I saying my problem. N after 6 months also I dint cured n again went for an allopathic dermatologist n cured it. I just want to know if thyroid n asthma problem is linked n is it compulsory dat if I take treatment for asthma in Ayurveda or homeopathy I will have to face a tough time for my skin. Please doctors do reply. I really want to take your advice n go a head for treatment. Can hypothyroidism can b cured. N asthma also with out a flare ups n allergy break out?
