Is par curable? my son (5year old) has mild asthma but allergic rhinites all the year. Doctors of allopathy said if it is not cured asthma will not go. They have given mometasone nasal spray and montec lc for one month. The problem is that after the course of montec lc is completed ar comes back despite the constant use of mometasone. What should I do? I have tried Ayurveda medicine (prescription medicine) without effect.

You need to continue medications as advised by your doctor and review on a monthly basis. Do not stop the medicines on your own else the symptoms would relapse. We generally titrate the medicines very slowly over a period of few months to keep the child asymptomatic.

My 5-year-old daughter has asthma. What is the effect of using an asthma preventer long-term? I heard that using it for years might cause bone shrinkage. Is it true? Are there any vitamins or supplements to help vision?

MBBS

If steroids are given orally for long periods of time than only it will cause bone shrinkage but if given through nebulisation than it won't have any side effects

Hi take ginger tea mixed with 2-3 crushed garlic cloves. Massaging the chest with warm sesame oil mixed with salt helps to loosen the phlegm deposited in the chest, especially, when followed with steam inhalation.

What are the symptoms of human immune deficiency virus infection and acquired immune deficiency syndrome and what to do prevent from this.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
When someone gets infected with hiv, there will be transient symptoms of viral infection like fever, sore throat, neck node swellings, but they will subside by themself in 1 month and then patient will remain asymptomatic for a long time ranging from 5 years to 10 years. The virus in between this period will continue damaging the body's immune system, and when the damage is increasing the patient starts getting different types of infections in various organs of body. These infections many times are caused by such organisms which usually do not cause disease in otherwise healthy person, so they are called opportunistic infections (i. E. Infections see an opportunity and occur in body when the immunity is low). When the immune system is too low and pt gets serious infections that stage is called aids. They hiv spreads through blood and body fluids. So best way to prevent is to prevent contact of blood or body fluids from a patient. Measures such as safe sexual practices, avoiding contaminated blood transfusion, not using already used needles and syringes, and ways to prevent mother to child transmission in womb can prevent the spread of hiv.

Hi I am having chstpain once in a couple of days and feel Like a breath problem at the time of eating but no cough once in a week also. Will it leaDs to asthma?

Hi. I understand your concerns. It may not be asthma. It could be acid reflux. You will need anti peptic and also try life style modifications like go for a walk after your food. Reduce weight. Use 2 pillows to sleep. Get a chest x ray done and consult a pulmonologist for the same. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

Dear, Lybrate-user, I reviewed your query with the given facts. Being a patient with Chronic ?Allergic? Or other causes of Asthma, I would like to rule out causes for allergic asthma, by detailed history taking/and clinical reviews for at least 1-2 interactions online at My Lybrate clinic. The other causes needs to be ruled out with private appointment on My Lybrate clinic by prior enquiry for it. Advise on medicines, diet, would be given only after detailed work up of your case. So I would suggest you to book a private appointment with Me on Lybrate for private consultation, as it needs detailed study before any tests and drugs are given to you. I hope to reduce your dependence on these medicines, which have temporary and symptomatic reliefs. I would suggest you to be under guidance of Me, to achieve full and effective diagnosis and treatment plans. I would plan to keep you away from creating any dependence as the case is chronic, which could other wise would lead to side effects from chronic use of these and other advanced medicines for anti-asthmatic effects. Hope this would resolve your current anxiety.

Hi immunity  has a lot to do with rest diet, exercise and lifestyle. If you have repeated or persistent cold it may actually be allergic rather than infection. If due to ideation and you need to bolster your immunity Start have plenty of fruits and vegetables  in your diet. A course of vitamin B complex and C for 1 month. Add a probiotic supplement to your regular meals. Have sleep for atleast 7 to 8 hours. Exercise atleast for 30 minutes  every day. For Allergy Steam inhalation  twice a day.. Hope this helps

MBBS

1.Dust allergy could be because of so many agents (It could be due to pollen, mite, feathers, droppings of birds, cockroach etc) 2..I advise you to do an allergy test after consulting an allergy specialist to find out the agent which is causing dust allergy. 3.Follow the advice and treatment given by allergy specialist

Hi dear, you are a asthamatic. You have to avoid the allergic componant from which you are having. You have to take the inhalers as when required. Inhalers are good for asthma.

To control asthma effectively. First is that you should avoid any triggering agents. Secondly. You need a pulmonary function test to see amount of airflow obstruction you have. Based on that medications will be started for you and later on the medicines can be tapered and stopped once you improve.

Asthma is a complicated form of allergy only. It seems you had history of recurrent cold, cough, sneezing, dust allergy etc. Asthma does not directly damages the lungs, it is an issue with the airways. The disease generally starts as frequent infections of cold involving diseases like allergic rhinitis and sinusitis. Later it moves down involving throat also and further down to the respiratory tract. If you do not want to use inhalers then opt for homeopathy, it will take care of you and do the following: 1. Protect yourself from cold environment. 2. Avoid sour food stuffs. 3. Avoid cold drinks. 4. Do jogging and exercise daily, it helps a lot. 5. Be under medication be it any system of medicine to keep disease under check.
