Apart from taking symptomatic treatment I will suggest you to buy a steam inhaler machine of crescent company and take a flow of steam (of plain water only) over the forehead through the inhaler and can repeat the process after eight hours as and when required.

My Dad's sonography tells that he has moderate left pleural effusion, what does that mean and what should we do now?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine), Certified in Evidence Based Diabetes Management, MNAMS, MRCP (UK)
Internal Medicine Specialist, Kolkata
Thank you for the query. Plerura or pleural space, is a sac like covering around our lung. It is a potential space and air, fluid and blood can collect in it. Pleural effusion implies that there is collection of fluid in the pleural space. When there is a collection in this space, the normal function of the lung (gaseous exchange) may be hampered. It would have been helpful if you would have mentioned your father's age, and whether he is suffering from any comorbidities, also whether he has any addictions (like smoking). The commonest cause of pleural effusion is infection (usually bacterial). Other causes may be tuberculosis, mitosis or conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. Liver disease, kidney problems and cardiac failure also causes pleural effusion, but they mostly bilateral (both sided). It is advisable that you visit a physician or chest specialist. A chest x-ray will be needed. Some blood tests like complete haemogram will be needed, and analysis of the pleural fluid may be done. Regards.

I have been suffering from chronic sinusitis. I have got streptococci. Mucus accumulates in sockets of right eye and finds problem. Slight feverish feeling and the occurrence is frequent. I have tried for cinnabaris200, a homeopathic medicine. But not a good result. Taking steam inhalation. But the matter is very embarrassing. I want to get homeopathic medicine advice. I raised this question two days ago. But an allopath answered which I do not like to take.

Hello, Homoeopathy is the right choice of treatment for Chronic sinusitis. You should take kali Bich. 200 ch , 3 drops in the daily morning and Hydrastis 30 Ch , 3 drops in daily evening. Echinaecea 1X , 2 tabs twice daily. Revert me after 7 days. Take care.

Thanks for the query. It seems you have allergic rhinitis with concomitant asthma. With acid reflux. It may have resulted if you are on steroid like betnesol. Try tab pantoprazole 40 mg empty stomach in the morning. Best wishes.

Tb bacteria most commonly grow in the lungs, and can cause symptoms such as: a bad cough that lasts 3 weeks or longer pain in the chest coughing up blood or sputum (mucus from deep inside the lungs) other symptoms of tb disease may include: weakness or fatigue weight loss no appetite chills fever sweating at night tb risk factors anyone can get tb, but people at high risk generally fall into two categories: 1. People recently infected with tb bacteria 2. People with medical conditions that weaken the immune system.

Cold and cough are a part of growing up you teen age. There are a lot of viruses in the community and it spreads from one person to the next by coughing sneezing or contact with person or areas where they have touched. So you get it. Once you get it you develop resistance to it. It never occurs again but a different virus will produce the next cough and cold. By 30 to 40 years the frequency of cough cold decreases dramatically as you have already got good defense by the previous attacks. Medicines will only give some temporary relief. The cold and cough will go away in 14 days time in most whether you take medicines or not. So there is no need for any more worry. Some develop asthma ; sneezing ; allergy cough etc with viral fever especially in kids and then you have to get allergy doctors help. Your case it will go away soon. Do not worry for each cold/cough attack if it is mild and short lived.
