LCPS, BAM&S

Just put otrivin nasal drops 3-4 times and take crocin tablets. If symptoms persist, then see your family doctor. Sinus is a simple ailment to cure. Don't worry.

Dear sirs, I have to ask for an important opinion. The details are as follows: 1. It was 60 yrs back (1957) when my friend was only 18 yrs (weight 54kgand height 175cm) and had heavy bleeding from mouth and was diagnosed a case of broncactasis. He had some heavy strain on previous day i. E. Running for about 4-5 km on hot day. The bleeding was for only 1 or 2 days. It was alright after some antibiotics injections and rest for about month. 2. There was no problem for 5 yrs. Again in 1963, there was bleeding from mouth but not so heavy. It continued for few days i. E. Blood in sputum. After few days of hospitalization and antibiotics, and rest it was alright. 3. There was no trouble at all for next 50 yrs (from 1963 to 2010). 4. He is now normal weight for his height. 5. Got tested for t. B. Several time over last 50-60 yrs but no t. B. 6. For last 4-5 (till 2013) yrs, he started getting blood in sputum, once in a while which lasts for 4-5 days and then o. K. For months. He takes antibiotics for few days but homeopathic drugs regularly. 7. Sputum tests on regular intervals now indicate no infections (since last one yr) though earlier (during 2010-13) he was getting psedonomas infection in sputum test, which was cured by antibiotics. 8. Problem: now the problem has escalated. Though no infection has been found in sputum, the frequency of blood in sputum has increased. It is now almost every month for 4-5 days, which gets perfectly cured and the sputum is clear, though he gets regular? phelgem? from lungs which is mostly white in colour. Next month again same problem. 9. X-ray chest several time. Shows clear chest. 10. He is not on any regular allopathic medicine but on homeopathic medicines on regular basis, for last 5-6 yrs. Even homeopathic medicine also not working very effectively now. Nasal spray? fluticone-ft, bd helps a little. 11. Question: what are the remedies. Is it curable by medicines or is it fait accompli. How life threatening is this situation. Thankyou

I was a good sportsman in school. Now I am 22 years old. Now if I start run after 5-10 minutes I feel tired & I feel trouble in breathing. What is my problem?

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science

Start training gradually and slowly. You have to give your body time to get back the stamina like before. Improve your nutrient intake which has definitely gone down since school days due to stress and fast lifestyle. If you are consistent and disciplined you will achieve your stamina back gradually.

How to know sinus or dust allergy .I have both symptoms .doctor prescribed me levocetirizine tab. Still I have same problem.

MS - ENT,MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Kolkata
Dust allergy is partly genetic and partly environmental. Thus it never goes away. With better ,less dusty environment  the extent if the problem gets reduced. Medicines help to downregulate the immune response of your body to these environmental allergens. Long term lifestyle  changes with gradually tapering medication  helps to tackle chronic sinus problems.  Start taking Steam inhalation twice a day. *For chronic allergic rhinosinusitis you will need to take a long term course of antibiotics  together  with Nasal sprays . *You will need to avoid dusty environment  and dust mites, animal dander etc. Regular cleaning of AC air filters. Wearing mask while driving 2 wheelers/working in dusty  areas Medical  management  is done for 3 months and then patients  condition is reviewed.  Intermittent treatment is not beneficial  in the long run. Around 30 %of people with allergic rhinitis  will develop Asthma if not treated .But majority of patients with asthma are allergic to dust .Active treatment  of nasal allergy reduces Asthma attacks and medicine requirements. This improve  quality of life .allergens.

Suffering from dry cough from last two days and there is a pain in chest whenever I cough hard.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Suffering from dry cough from last two days and there is a pain in chest whenever I cough hard.
This can be due to irritant like tobacco , nicotine , masala or other intoxicants, so check your habits and stop intoxicants. Do gurgle with warm salt water.Please make it a point that too bitter, too sour, salty, hot, pungent, dry and burning foods are to be avoided as such foods cause distress, misery and disease. Thus deep frying foods or foods taking lot of oil as in gravy vegetables , salty foods , spicy foods , long preserved , frozen foods , junk foods like pizzas burgers chips are to be avoided. If problem does not improve within two days , then you have to ask your local doctor

Mucus is getting formed in my nose constantly. I am nasal sinus patient. Give me some natural remedy please. Nose is running. Its just stuck in nose always.

Diploma in Otorhinolaryngology (DLO), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
Mucous formation in the nose is a natural process. The mucous is needed to keep the nose moist & to remove the impurities that you inhale while breathing. Excess mucous formation is not normal. It could because of an allergic reaction. Get a ct scan of the sinus along with a nasal endoscopic examination done by an ent surgeon. These two procedures will pick up any nasal pathology.

General Physician,
You may be having chronic bronchitis may be allergic. Due to some infection or prolonged exposure to cold climate. Try to avoid cold climate as far as possible by taking preventive measures. Have plenty of vitamin c or freshly prepared home made nimboo pani which is rich in vitamin c thereby increases your immune system prevent infection.
