When I was eating tomato I would get allergy on the hands mainly so please give me any solution.
If this occurs each time you eat tomato, you could be allergic to tomatoes. And you should avoid eating it. If the symptom progresses to the point of discomfort or any other symptom occur like breathlessness, itching all over the body then you must consult a doctor or visit a nearby clinic for immediate management.

You need to inform how severe is your condition. How many times in a week you wake up during your sleep due to breathlessness? according to the severity of your condition, medicines are generally prescribed. In general, you may have to take more than one inhalers, i. E. One inhalers for regular use another as rescue medicine. At the same time, you may need to take anti-allergic medicines to prevent exacerabation. If you are a smoker, you immediately have to stop it. There are some side effects of taking inhalers containing steroid. It may cause oral ulcer if you do not rinse your mouth properly after using inhalers. Sometimes, steroid tablets or injections are required for treating severe asthma which may cause decreased immunity and makes a human prone to infection.

if you have not got a tetanus shot in the last 5 years, I would want you to get a tetanus toxoid Injection immidiately. kittens are gently harmless and don't spread rabies. if the wound is clean, you can leave it as it is. but if it is dirty, antibiotics may be needed to prevent infection. feel free to consult if you would need my assistance.

I have cold problem, its not cured, its like energy (bronchial asthma). Whats the solution for me ?

AUTLS, CCEDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
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

Dear lybrate-user, inhalers containing steroids and lung opener or bronchodilator medicines are the best for treatment of asthma. Side effects include oral fungus, hoarseness of voice and if high dose of steroids are used for long then osteoporosis or thinning of bones. Regards.
