Hello throat issues arise either due to infection of throat proper either tonsils or back of throat pharyngitis. But since you have cough it implies there might be some phlegm trickling back of your throat from sinuses into voice box region causing constant cough. You can benefit by doing steam inhalation which will clear the sinuses and stopping the phlegm trickling down. For cough you can use warm water with honey, lozenges like tusq. If you have allergy issues that triggers an attack of allergic bronchitis leading to allergic cough. Take precautions of avoiding exposure to strong odour, dust exposure. Take care.

Hi, if you have fever also then you need antibiotics for treatment. Probably acute bronchitis. May require nebulisation to help breathe better. Require chest x ray and some investigations to rule out pneumonia. You need to consult me with more clinical details and chest x ray picture for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Hello. Asthma is thought to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Medication: Bronchitis/ Asthma can be treated with homoeopathic medicines completely, only need to be regular with the medication and avoid those foods/ things to which you are allergic to for sometime. Keep taking your already on going medication, reduce it gradually and slowly once homoeopathic starts acting. Take Bakson's Astha-Aid drops/ 10-15 drops in 1/2 cup water/ thrice d day for 1 month. Report me back after a month.

The best way it to know the regular cycle and timing of ovulation. If you follow that, you will not need any medicines at all. Apart from this if you still want to take medicines, the contraceptives would be best for you. You might have heard of Mala D being promoted by the government for the same reasons. All the best.

My father had tb of larynx with primary focal point in lungs last year for which he took medication for 6 months. His sputum test showed negative afb. We assumed he recovered. However, he never gained weigh again after that, and in fact, he lost further weight. On biopsy of enlarged adrenal gland seen in us, the report showed tb of adrenal gland. Now he has again started taking his old tb medication. Can I know how do we go further about it. Will he be fine taking the same medication again? how do we know if the medication is still working?

Was u/s done at first treatment also. If tb of lung/larynx was cured by previous treatment tb of adrenal should also be cured. Any other symtoms excepy wt loss. Get biopsy slide examined from second pathologist. If tb of adrenal only now then by repeat u/s and reduction in tb symtoms. Treatment has to continued for one to one and half year, as it appear to be haematogenous tb.
