I had a problem of cough and rhinitis since childhood what should I do for that?

I had a problem of cough and rhinitis since childhood what should I do for that?
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. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

When I got suffered from cough it would last long for at least 1 month, how can I get rid from the problem.

B H M S, MD
Homeopath, Thrissur
Cough lasting for one month is not a ordinary cough followed by viral cold. Do not take it light nazim. It has to be investigated for cause with blood analysis, total eosinophil count along with cxr (xray) to confirm the diagnosis and proper ethical treatment.

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
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.

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 am smoking from the past 5 years . I am 26 years old. I am getting breathing problem frequently. Please suggest how to avoid it. Thanks in advance.

Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling, MA In Clinical Psychology

Yesss, smoking creates lots of health problems. If you want to quit your addiction of smoking you need to create motivation in urself that you can stay without smoking. It helps to create your self confidence to quit it. Try to attaind narcotics anonymous meetings. Or you can take help from psychiatrist to deal with your withdrawal symptoms. Use positive substitutes like chewing chocklate, mithi soanf etc. But do not use smoking if you r going through craving. If you have any questions you can ask me anytime. Not to worry, best luck. I know you have the ability as well as power to come out from the disease of smoking addiction. Have a nice day.

My son is having dry cough. His voice has changed a bit which syrup you recommend.

AUTLS, CCEDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS

There are several things you can do to prevent a cold—they are all easy and inexpensive and worth the effort. Wash your hands often-with soap and warm water.The germs stick to the soap and get washed down the drain. 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- Clean your hands every time you cough or sneeze. Avoid Touching Your Eyes, Nose, or Mouth-Germs are often spread when a person touches a contaminated surface and then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth. Stay Home When You’re Sick-Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, don’t smoke, manage stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food so you can fend off viruses. Take healthy balanced diet...like boiled eggs.daily in breakfast .. Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. Routinely clean and disinfect common areas of your home. Treatment:There is a gradual 1-3 day onset of symptoms. It often starts out as a sore throat, then a fever and coughing. As the cold progresses, the nasal mucus may thicken which is the last stage before the cold dries up. A cold usually lasts for a week or two. But, taking good care of yourself at home can relieve symptoms and help prevent complications if you are otherwise healthy. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn’t need medical treatment. Complications include bacterial infections of the ears, throat, sinuses or lungs which must be treated with antibiotics. In general you should: • get plenty of rest so your body can use its energy to fight the cold • staying at home will keep you from spreading germs • drink plenty of liquids like herbal tea or hot broth/vegetable/tomato soups. Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine which can keep you from getting enough sleep Runny Nose and Sneezing- if you have post nasal drip, gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. Drink extra fluids. (avoid sugary and high calorie drinks) Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation • Tablet Nasorest-P once/twice daily may reduce the amount of mucous. • Humidify the rooms you are in most or your whole house if possible. • Do steam inhalation once or twice daily Cough-Coughing is how your body gets rid of debris and mucus from the airways during a viral infection. Unless your cough is severe or is keeping you from resting at night, it is better not to treat it. A severe cough can be treated with a cough syp, but don’t try to completely stop the cough. There are two types of coughs. Productive and non-productive or dry cough. Non-productive, dry cough. A dry, hacking cough may develop near the end of a cold. Dry coughs that follow viral colds are often worse at night and can last up to several weeks. Take syrup Alex-D for a dry cough. Cough drops can sooth an irritated throat, but most don’t affect the cough. Productive cough. A productive cough is one that brings up mucus from the back of the throat or the lungs. Productive coughs should not be suppressed to the point they no longer bring up mucus. Use syrup Alex. Drink lots of water if you have a productive cough. Head and Body Aches- Take tablet dolo-650 mg for fever once or twice daily
