My dad is suffering from PTB doctor suggested to have bronchoscopy for understanding weather its of type mdr or not? What should we do? Should we wait for results of first line medicine or go with test? How much is cost of bronchoscopy in mumbai? And is it hurting patient in any way?

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
Hi lybrate-user, If your doctor might have asked for a bronchoscopy then I believe they have tested his sputum and found him to be still positive, despite treatment. If that is the case, then it is advisable to get it done as you need to know if your father is suffering from MDR TB. The treatment for MDR is a lot different from the fisrt line therapy in terms of drug used and also the duration of treatment. Sorry I cannot accurately tell you about the pricing in Mumbai, but I believe it can range from 2500 to 15000 depending on the centre. It is usually a painless procedure but can cause a lot of discomfort, depending on the expertise of the doctor.

MBBS

1, do a complete blood examination like cbc, esr, mantoux test, x ray chest, sputum examination for afb (3 samples). 2. Consult chest physician with report. 3. Do warm saline gurgling 3-4 times daily, 4. Avoid smoking if you smoke. 5. If all reports are normal then you are having naso bronchial allergy 6. Do an allergy test after consulting allergist/immunologist and follow the advice and treatment accordingly.

Blocked nose, Sinusitis, Respiratory allergies-solutions without over the counter Medicines.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi

Respiratory allergies are aggravated during a change of season and it is rampant during Feb and march in and around Delhi/ NCR. Allergies are aggravated by gas, bloating and are accompanied by dry skin, dry throat, cough, sneezing and wheezing. When allergy strikes, phlegm (balgam) blocks the nose and sinuses. Allergy may or may not be accompanied by fever but body ache is for sure. Normally for this type of low-grade fever antibiotics are not required but these allergies are not self-limiting like the flu with which it can be confused. Stress is another factor that aggravates the allergic effects. Ginger helps, so does honey and black pepper and cinnamon but on top of the list is steam to inhale, steam is antiseptic too, remember your doctor sterilizing instruments by autoclave which is based on the formula of a pressure cooker-lots of a stem is generated and everything (except plastic) including clothes and drapes get sterilized. Take a handy covered vessel like the one used in beauty parlors, switch on while it is kept on your table and cover your face with a towel, deep breathe steam, you will feel the passages opening up and phlegm melting which you can spit out without an effort of a violent cough. Avoid heavy, processed, refined and processed foods. 2) triphla helps fight allergy too, its powder or tablets help to reduce inflammation anywhere in the body. 3) wear cotton or linen 4) meditation helps reduce stress 5) benefits of honey are known to everyone. Do not take honey with steaming hot beverages, take it with warm water only. 6) ginger- some people chew it raw, some mothers give a drop of its juice+ some honey to their toddlers, some people make a concoction by boiling it in water at low heat and consuming it like tea/ coffee with a little milk 7) fresh indoor plants minus dust on the leaves gives fresh oxygen and inhaling deeply fresh air does open up blocked respiratory passages. 8) eat less salt as it leads to water retention making a condition worse 9) Guduchi also helps 10) maintain hygiene, do not skip daily bath with warm water. 11) if entire family including small kids want to inhale the steam for some time, make use of the smallest room in the house with doors closed, keep an electrical kettle, boiling for some time, entire room becomes steam room and breathe normally, passages of normal persons will also become free of any allergy. 12) everyone is lazy if asked to go to the kitchen to heat water but simple home remedies can help family and save money on extra medicines tests which are not required in simple seasonal allergies.

Sir I am suffering from cough. More bulgum feel at my throat. I am suffer since last week. I can't sleep due to cough.
The mucous that you are having is because of the excessive production of it from the nose which drips from the back of the throat (it is called post nasal drip) & this is the main cause of the cough. Taking a mucolytic will make the mucous thinner & then can be removed more easily through coughing.

I have cough and cold so what I have to do. I have taken medicine also but I dosent give me relief.
Hi, hi the following are some of the natural remedies for cold and cough: - add a pinch of turmeric and 1/4 tsf of black pepper powder to hot milk and drink it twice a day. - mix 1 tsf of honey to 1 tsf of basil leaf juice; take it twice a day. - prepare a decoction by boiling one glass of water containing 1 tsf of coriander powder, 1 tsf of pepper powder and 1/2 tsf of ginger powder; reduce it to quarter glass and take it three times a day. - apply turmeric paste on the forehead. - do steam inhalation twice a day by adding 1-2 drops of eucalyptus oil to hot water. - keep 1 grain of crystal salt and 2-3 black pepper in a beetle leaf, roll it and chew it. This relieves cough.

Hi, lybrate-user. See asthma is an allergic disorder & depends on individual's allergic characteristics. How long one should continue inhalers differs in each individual. For asthma control, right inhaler, in right dose, regularly, via right technique is necessary. If you are taking it like that, & still symptomatic, consult a good chest physician to rule out other allergic chest conditions (e. G. Abpa etc.). Do chest xray, pulmonary function test. & then continue medicines regularly, which a chest physician prescribes.

Mr. Lybrate-user, excess use of cough syrups containing codeine for long time is not good. Codeine can lead to addiction, both physical and mental. Plus causes constipation. According to the company's own list of side-effects list it can cause cns depression, lassitude, drowsiness, loss of appetite, dizziness, blurring of vision, tightness in chest, hypertension etc. So such preparations should be used sparingly only for a very short duration. Thanks.

Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines taking into account patient preferences.
