It would be better if you are able to give your current medication history along with your food habits and lifestyle. Regarding food you should avoid cold food, curds, old food, fried food. Drink only hot water, early dinner will help. Do breathing exercise regularly. Ayurveda treatments can help you to lead normal life with out medication.

This could be due to dryness of throat. Avoid being in ac for long time, as ac absorbs moisture and causes dryness. Keep a bucket of water in ac room in order to maintain moisture. You may take homoeopathic treatment for it.

Hello iam ranjeet singh, my question is that my grandfather is uncomfortable to take breathing generally at night, and sometimes the blood comes out from the nose. What should I do. I hope you will understand the problems faced by my grandfather. Thankyou.

DAA, DNB
Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I understand your concerns. Mostly your grandfather has hypertension and cause for nose bleed is most likely to be due to uncontrolled hypertension. Breathlessness also can be due to it. Consult a doctor at the earliest. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

Does day care, preschool, etc. Have an effect on children developing allergies or asthma?

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
The matter is controversial, some children may have frequent infections acquired from other children, when they are genetically susceptible for allergy or asthma and so may have frequent symptoms, but if we go with hygiene hypothesis, if some one is exposed to allergens in childhood frequently, and gets frequent episodes of exposure to infections may also develop immunity towards them and may have lesser chances of adulthood asthma and allergies. So exactly what will happen in difficult to guess. There are many questions for which medical science still does not have definite answers, but rest assured, we doctors and researchers are working on them day and night to solve them one day.
