Hi take ginger tea mixed with 2-3 crushed garlic cloves. Massaging the chest with warm sesame oil mixed with salt helps to loosen the phlegm deposited in the chest, especially, when followed with steam inhalation. Take shwas kuthar ras twice a day. Pranacharya asthamin capsule 1-1 twice a day. And pranacharya shwas vikarasav 2-2 tsf twice a day. 1-1 drop of cow ghee in both nostrils at night time before sleep. Take hot water steam.

What are the symptoms of critical asthma for a person in age groups of fifteen to twenties. How to cure it.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Asthma exacerbations are acute or subacute episodes of breathlessness, cough, wheezing, and chest tightness, or any combination of these symptoms. Treatment include: short-acting beta agonists, such as albuterol. These medications are the same medications as those in your quick-acting (rescue) inhaler. You may need to use a machine called a nebulizer, which turns the medication into a mist that can be inhaled deep into your lungs. Oral corticosteroids. Taken in pill form, these medications help reduce lung inflammation and get your asthma symptoms under control. For more-severe asthma attacks, corticosteroids can be given intravenously. Ipratropium (atrovent). Ipratropium is sometimes used as a bronchodilator to treat a severe asthma attack, especially if albuterol is not fully effective. Intubation, mechanical ventilation and oxygen. If your asthma attack is life-threatening, your doctor may put a breathing tube down your throat into your upper airway. Using a machine that pumps oxygen into your lungs will help you breathe while your doctor gives you medications to get your asthma under control.

It's too early to jump on diagnosis of asthma. But asthma in grandfather is a strong supporting factor. Asthma is more likely if your son have whistling sounds, difficulty breathing and repeated cough cold. Needs further observation and proper specialized treatment.

I hava pain in my backbone suddenly at anytime and also a cyneous problem. I have a problem of dry cough also.
Hello lybrate user, - correct your food habits and lifestyle to come out of your issues. - avoid sour foods, always have freshly prepared food - have a glass of warm water after dinner - take decoction of ginger and jeera twice a day before food - you need some physical exercise or adopt yogasanas - as you have dry cough that might be causing back pain. - have 5-6 tulsi leaves daily twice before food - apply some medicated oils like ksheerabala taila to get strength to the back. Thank you.
