How do I get rid of the congestion from my chest?

AUTLS, CCEDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
There are several things you can do to prevent a cold. they are all easy. -Always wash your hands after coughing or sneezing into your hands, blowing your nose, after touching someone who is sick, or when using public restrooms or telephones. -Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough. -Get plenty of rest/sleep.staying at home will keep you from spreading germs.Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. -Drink plenty of fluids(veg/tomato soups,dal water/coconut water/herbal tea etc), and eat nutritious food(like sprouts/boiled eggs without yolk with milk). Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine which can impair your sleep -Treatment:A cold usually lasts for a week or two. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn't need medical treatment. -Complications like infections of the ears, throat, sinuses or lungs must be treated with antibiotics. -Gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. -Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation. -Tablet nasorest-p once/twice daily may ease breathing. -Do steam inhalation once or twice daily

I am having cough in my chest, I usually smoke please guide me for some medicines which will help me for my health.

PG Hom, London, BHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
Hello lybrate-user, regular smoking will lead to occasional coughing and congestion in the chest. Firstly you need to quit smoking. You must take steam inhalation atleast 2-3 times in a day. Steam will loosen the phlegm that might have stuck to the small air passages in the lungs. It will also help in releasing the phlegm from the air passages.

What should I do as I am suffering from asthma?

DBCM (AM) General Physician
Alternative Medicine,
Lot many causative factors are there for shortness of breathing, an attack may be brought on by contact with substances to which the person is sensitive and emotional or dietary factors should not be overlooked. A sudden change of temperature can bring on an attack. Some alleviation of the symptoms may be obtained with the use of the appropriate tissue salts (biochemic) cuprum ars 12x alternate with ferrphos, kali phos and mag phos. If one appears to be more effective than the others, then you may take more of it, most important is it requires detailed questioning so as to ascertain your personality and to treat you symptomatically. Treatment is available, safe and without side effects in biochemic system of medication. Consult me in private.
