Tuberculosis and Its Treatment

Pulmonologist, Pune
Tuberculosis and Its Treatment

Tuberculosis is a lung related disease that is caused by bacteria known as Mycobacterium Tuberculosis. Tuberculosis spreads through the air and is a highly contagious disease that can be transmitted through coughing, sneezing and spitting. The symptoms of this condition include coughing, blood discharge while coughing, fever, extreme weight loss, and chills. Against general myths, this disease can be treated and is curable too. Effective, timely diagnosis and treatment with the correct methods and medication are required. Let us find out the various means for effective treatment of tuberculosis.

Diagnosis: Let us first look at the diagnosis method that will help in detecting the presence of the bacteria in the body. The doctor will take a blood sample and conduct a series of lab tests in order to diagnose the condition. Also, the doctor will check the medical history of the patient so as to understand what kind of complications the person may be prone to. For this, the doctor will also find out if the patient is suffering from diseases like diabetes, malnutrition and other conditions arising out of tobacco abuse. Diagnosis of Pulmonary TB is by sputum for AFB examination and some blood test may also be required.

Medication: Usually, the best way to treat this condition is with the help of a six month long course of antibiotics that may also last 12 months, depending on the prognosis. The patient will be put in quarantine as well, so that he or she does not end up spreading this disease to anyone else. A voluntary medical practitioner or trained health worker will help in care giving and medicine administration under the instructions of the doctor. The medication will usually consist of four antimicrobial drugs or antibiotics, which will stop the release of nutrition and oxygen to the bacteria so that it cannot develop and grow. This will also ensure that the bacteria gets killed eventually.

Control of Infection: The spread of the infection is such that a single sneeze or cough can infect up to ten to fifteen people who are near the patient without proper masks and other gear to prevent the transmission. Therefore, it is the job of the hospital to ensure that proper infection control takes place by using ultraviolet light to sterilise the air around the area where the TB patients have been admitted.

One thing that the patient must remember about the treatment is that immediate and timely treatment with medication must be taken so that the patient is able to get cured. If the patient skips medicines or does not get treated on time, then the infection will come back again and again. And after a point, the patient's body and the bacteria will not be able to react to the medicines. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pulmonologist.

I am having tb and tb glands at the right side of the neck. I used to smoke a lot but from 27 September 2016 I left smoking and from that day I am taking medicines for tb on daily basis. Aa per my reports I am having infection in my neck gland. I am worried because I am taking medicines regularly but my gland is getting bigger in size and is this risky to my life?

With anti TB treatment, size of lymph nodes should shrink in case of tuberculous lymphadenitis. If size is increasing, diagnosis must be revaluated, also proper dose of antiTB drugs. Besides, tuberculous lymphadenitis there frequent causes may be bacterial infection of neck region including oral cavity. We must also rule out malignancy. Consult your Physician to review.

Don't try to remove a build-up of earwax yourself with your fingers, a cotton bud or any other object. Ear drops to be used for few days to soften the earwax so that it falls out by itself. If still no relief then ear irrigation to be done by ENT doctor. Hope this answer helps u

Bachon ki Khansi ka ilaj

बहुत आम पर हालत बिगाड़ देने वाली आम बीमारियों में से एक है खांसी। खांसी अगर गम्भीर रूप में हो जाए तो हेल्दी हेल्दी व्यक्ति भी थक हार कर सुस्त पड़ जाता है। शरीर का हर हिस्सा दर्द महसूस करने लगता है क्योंकि खांसते समय इसका असर केवल गले पर ही नही बल्कि सीना पेट हाथ पैर सब पर इफ़ेक्ट पड़ता है। बड़े तो फिर भी अपनी तकलीफ बयान कर भी लेते हैं और उसका इलाज भी कर लेते हैं पर सोचने की बात है कि बच्चों को खांसी होने पर उनका क्या हाल होता होगा। क्योंकि ना वो बता पाते हैं ना खुदसे अपनी मदद कर सकते हैं। इसलिए जरूरी है कि हमें पूरी जानकारी हो बच्चों को होने वाली खांसी की वजह और उसके इलाज के लिए घरेलू नुस्खों के बारे में।

दरसलश्लेम यानी म्यूकसको बाहर निकालने की कोशिश में या फिर गले और वायु मार्ग में सूजन होनेकी वजह से शिशु खांसता है।खांसी की वजह बहुत सी होती हैं, मगर आमतौर पर यह सर्दी-जुकाम या फ्लू का लक्षण होता है। ऐसे में हम अक्सर दवाओं का सहारा लेते हैं पर आपको यह बात पता होनी चाहिए कि सर्दी, जुकाम, खांसी जैसी बीमारियों में दवा देने की बजाय होम रेमेडीज अपनानी चाहिए। क्योंकि इन बीमारियों का नेचुरल तरीके से इलाज करना जितना बेहतर होता है उतना ही अंग्रेजी दवाओं से इलाज करना नेगेटिव साइड इफ़ेक्ट से भरपूर। तो आइए आज हम जानेंगे शिशुओं को होने वाली खांसी कारण और इससे राहत दिलाने वाले कुछ घरेलू नुस्खे।

खांसी के कारण

1. सर्दी-जुकाम
अगर आपके शिशु को सर्दी-जुकाम की वजह से खांसी हो रही हो, तो उसे साथ में बंद नाक, बहती नाक, गले में खारिश, आंखों में पानी और बुखार जैसे लक्षण भी हो सकते हैं। जुकाम की वजह से बनने वाले अतिरिक्त श्लेम को निकालने के लिए आपका शिशु खांसता है।

2. फ्लू
फ्लू के लक्षण सर्दी-जुकाम की तरह ही लग सकते हैं। अगर, आपके शिशु को फ्लू हो, तो उसे बुखार, नाक बहना और कई बार दस्त (डायरिया) या उल्टी भी हो सकती है। मगर फ्लू की वजह से होने वाली खांसी, जुकाम वाली खांसी से अलग होगी। यह बलगम वाली खांसी की बजाय सूखी खांसी होगी। इसका मतलब यह है कि आपका शिशु खांसी के साथ काफी कम बलगम निकाल रहा होगा।

3. क्रूप
अगर शिशु को क्रूप हो, तो उसे वायु मार्ग में सूजने होने की वजह से खांसी होगी। शिशुओं का वायु मार्ग काफी संकरा होता है और आपसे काफी छोटा होता है। इसलिए इनमें सूजन होने पर शिशु के लिए सांस लेना मुश्किल हो जाता है। छह माह और तीन साल के बीच के बच्चों को क्रूप होने की संभावना ज्यादा होती है। क्रूप खांसी मे भौंकने जैसी आवाज निकलती है। जो कि अक्सर रात में शुरु होती है।

4. काली खांसी 
काली खांसी या कुक्कर खांसी एक बैक्टिरियल इंफेक्शनहै। यह काफी संक्रामक होती है। काली खांसी में बहुत ज्यादा और खुश्क खांसी होती है। इसमें बहुत सारा श्लेम निकलता है और खांसते समय सांस लेते हुए उच्च स्वर या ध्वनि निकलती है।

5. दमा
शिशु को दमा की वजह से भी खांसी हो सकती है। अस्थमा से ग्रस्त शिशु की सांस लेते व छोड़ते समय श्वास फूलती है। उनकी छाती भी कस जाती है और सांस की कमी होने लगती है।

6. तपेदिक 
लगातार रहने वाली खांसी टी.बी. का लक्षण हो सकता है। टी.बी. की खांसी दो सप्ताह से ज्यादा जारी रहती है। टी.बी. से ग्रस्त शिशु की खांसी में खून आ सकता है, उसे सांस लेने में कठिनाई हो सकती है और भूख लगना कम हो सकती है। शिशु को बुखार भी हो सकता है।

बच्चों की खांसी के उपचार के लिए घरेलू नुस्खे 

1. गर्म तरल चीजें पिलाएं
बच्चे को ठंडे की बजाय गर्म पानी और बाकी चीज भी गर्म तासीर वाली ही पिलाएं जिससे गले की सूजन को आराम मिलेगा।

2. वाष्पित्र या वेपोरब का इस्तेमाल करें
वेपोरब २ साल के बच्चे को भी खॉँसी में तेजी से राहत देता है। इस जादुई रगड़ में मेन्थॉल, कपूर और नीलगिरी जैसी सामग्री हैंबच्चे को आराम दिलाती है।

3. सिर ऊंचा कर के सुलाएं
बलगम नाक से गले में टपक सकता है, जिसके परिणाम में गंभीर खाँसी हो सकती है। शरीर की ऐसी मुद्रा बहाव को प्रेरित कर सकती है। इसलिए बच्चे को उंचे स्थान पर सिर रखकर सोने से बहाव न होने में मदद होगी।

4. हल्दी की मदद लें
गर्म दूध के साथ आधी चम्मच हल्दी पाउडर मिलाए और बेहतर राहत पाने के इस मिश्रण को गरम ही पिलाएं। या फिरगर्म पानीमें एक चुटकी हल्दी पाउडर और नमक मिलाकर बच्चे से गरारा करवाने की कोशिश करें।

5. शहद अपनाएं
रात के समय सूखी खांसी से राहत के लिए बच्चे को सुलाने के पहलेउसे गर्म दूध में मिलाकर पिलाएं।

6. अदरक
एक कप पानी में अदरक के टुकड़ों को ड़ाल कर इस मिश्रण को आधि मात्रा होने तक उबालकर छान के इसमे एक चम्मच शहद डालकर बच्चे को पिलाएं।

7. तुलसी
तुलसी के पत्तों का रस निकाल कर बच्चे को पिलाएं।

8. अंगूर का जादू
अंगूर प्राकृतिक कफोत्सारक हैं और वे आपके फेफड़ों से कफ निकाल देते हैं। इन फलों के रस में शहद मिलाए और इस रसको बच्चे सोने से पहले थोड़ा सा पिलाएं।

9. एलोवेरा
बड़ों की खांसी हो या बच्चे की खांसी एलोवेरा का रस और शहद के मिश्रण काफी असरदार नुस्खा है।

My son is suffering with cough from last one month. He cough only in morning or midnight not much. Cough syrup and home nuske ginger honey do not work as much to completely rid of cough. And I am giving him montair lc syrup from last one month. He has very less immunity. What should I do to make him rid of this cough. Last year also he suffered with cough, cold and ear infection for many days in winter season and he took antibiotics for many days at that time. Every year he suffer with this problem.

Hello Navita Your son appears to be allergic to the atmospheric conditions during winters. Cough syrups will help control the acute attack but they will not help prevent it or build immunity. For that I suggest you undertake homeopathic treatment for your son as it will help build immunity and over a period of time the frequency and intensity of the attack will reduce. Also give him plenty of fluids specially warm as they will soothe him and provide hydration. in fact let him drink lukewarm water as often as possible in winter. avoid cold and sour food altogether. Please get in touch with me if you have any more queries.

Adenoid, Tonsil, Quinsy, Tonsillitis and Homoeopathic Approach

BHMS, Certificate in Gynaecology & Obestric, MD - Homeopathy

Adenoid, Tonsil, Quinsy, Tonsillitis and Homoeopathic Approach
For kids growing up, enlarged tonsils can be a big problem. An enlarged tonsil and recurring infections pose various health risks for kids. A tonsil infection can lead to various other infections and diseases in the upper respiratory tract and even affect their physical growth.

A part of the lymphatic system, tonsils work hand in hand with the body’s immune system. Some reasons for enlarged tonsils are as follows:

Strep throat
Common cold (viral)

Enlarged tonsils can cause various health problems if left untreated. Often, tonsil infections can result in vomiting symptoms—something not quite treatable using traditional and allopathic medicinal practices which often look to surgery to remove the tonsil and provide relief.

Homeopathy is gaining popularity in treating kids with enlarged or infected tonsils. The homeopathic approach acknowledges the tonsil as an integral part of the body’s immune system and thus discourages surgical treatments of tonsil related problems. Homeopathic medicines are safe and can be used for prolonged periods without any side effects.

The homeopathic approach to enlarged tonsils works in the following way:

They bring down the size of the tonsil back to normal thus converting the tonsil from its unhealthy enlarged state to its normal, healthy one.
They enhance the immunity and resistance to allergic reactions/attacks from exposure to allergens.
They reduce the occurrence and frequency of common cold and influenza.

Cases have been recorded when traditional and allopathic approaches to tonsil infection failed and the patient was saved due to homeopathic treatment.
