I am suffering from allergy. The dust, strong odour and cold are the main allergen of my symptoms that are sneezing, water discharge from nose and sometimes tachycardia, But have no heart complication which shows in recent ecg and chest x rays by the expert.

There are several things you can do to prevent a cold. they are all easy. -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. -Get plenty of rest/sleep.staying at home will keep you from spreading germs.Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. -Drink plenty of fluids(veg/tomato soups,dal water/coconut water/herbal tea etc), and eat nutritious food(like sprouts/boiled eggs without yolk with milk). Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine which can impair your sleep -Treatment:A cold usually lasts for a week or two. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn't need medical treatment. -Complications like infections of the ears, throat, sinuses or lungs must be treated with antibiotics. -Gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. -Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation. -Tablet nasorest-p once/twice daily may ease breathing. -Do steam inhalation once or twice daily

Usually sun is trigger for allergens, dust contains many particles. So you require skin prick test and if some allergens are found positive than skin prick test is advisable.

Treat Asthma With Homeopathy

Homeopathy is now considered as one of the leading therapies that can efficiently deal with asthma trouble. Asthma is nothing but a respiratory trouble, and it can be very much severe at times and this is the reason you should take some precautions from the very beginning.

These medicines are completely natural and hence, there is no scope of any side-effects at all. Your immunity power can be boosted to a great extent with the intake of homeopathy medicines.

List of homeopathic drugs treating asthma:

  • Natrum Sulph: If you are looking for the most natural homeopathic remedy, then nothing can be a better option other than Natrum Sulph. If your kids are suffering from chronic asthma, then the doctors often prescribe using this medicine for getting quickest relief from the symptoms.

  • Kali carb: Asthma attacks especially during morning times can be alleviated by this medicine. This medicine is simply wonderful and its effects are unbeatable. But in this case, you should take only limited doses for getting the actual results.

Yogurt and immunity

Yogurt has probiotics the friendly bacteria that are naturally present in the digestive system. They help boost the immune system and promote a healthy digestive tract.
It is also a source of vitamin d that plays a role in regulating the body's immune function and tissue function.
Although milk and yogurt have similar mineral compositions, some minerals, eg, calcium are more bioavailable from yogurt than from milk.

I am suffering from asthma and I am using an inhaler one puff in a day is it safe doing or either I stop using inhaler but after stopping I am not comfortable.

Pulmonologist, Rajkot
Lybrate-user, first of all you have to understand your disease. Asthma is such a disease in which your airway is hyperreactive to some stimulations like smoke, dust, perfumes, pollens, animal dander and many more. If you stop medicine you will suffer. So think about treatment by which you can get relief from your asthma with minimal side effects. And out of all available medicine including homeopathic, ayurvedic, and allopathic inhaler is safest and most effective medicine. But you have to take it properly. And let your pulmonologist decide your medicine dosage.

Hi, bronchitis/ asthma can be treated well with homoeopathic medicines completely, only need to be regular with the medication and avoid those foods/ things to which you are allergic to for sometime. Keep taking your already on going medication, reduce it gradually and slowly once homoeopathic starts acting. Take bakson's astha-aid drops/ 10-15 drops in 1/2 cup water/ thrice d day for 1 month. Report me back after a month.

1. The incubation period (the period between the bite and appearence of symptoms) may vary from 10-90 days. Some times it can develop as early as within 4 days. Since in your case the bite took place 2 years before you have to worry now.
