I am a 31 years old woman allergic to pollen dust, cobwebs and humidity. My medical check-up showed bronchial asthma. I have been suffering from the same for the last 23 years. I use asthalin inhaler daily i. E. Whenever I do household chores involving rigorous activity. In short, I am addicted to the inhaler. If the wheezing does not stop then I take a tablet. Since last 3-4 years I am taking Okacet and Betnesol Forte. Please tell me the substitute of both these tablets as I have heard Betnesol is kind of a steroid. I also feel very sleepy after taking this.

Hi lybrate-user, your bronchial asthma is triggered by allergy. I suggest, first and foremost you appropriately figure out and make a note of all the allergen (s) that possibly trigger your asthma. Dust, smoke, pollen, fungi, animal hair, insects, certain food items like wheat, egg, chocolates, flesh foods etc, cold/ hot air, humidity, stress, acidity etc all are common allergens that might precipitate bronchial asthma and the triggers vary from person to person. In your case, as I understand, it is dust, pollen, cobweb, physical stress and humidity. Do you have any other triggers apart from the above-mentioned? so, once you identify all the right trigger (s), try your level best to avoid the same. You need to continue the prophylactic medications as advised by your doc until he finds it ok to withdraw any of your medications. Additionally, please check with your pulmonologist if he would like to advise any preventive puffs as appropriate that you may use irrespective of breathing issues for a longer duration, and one that shall also help prevent any precipitation of asthmatic conditions. Apparently, you also need to have a emergency puff with you, that you can use sos, basis your doc's advise/ prescription. Also, make sure your diet/ nutrition, lifestyle including bowel habits etc all are streamlined. Learn to relax and keep your stress levels, both physical as well as mental, low. Its advisable to eat in moderation and less than your full capacity than eating to your full. Try avoiding tea, coffee, spices, chilies, pickles, extremely hot & cold/ chilled foods for they cause acidity and trigger asthma too in some people. Do consume citrus fruits/ vegetables rich in vitamin c as they help strengthen immunity. Warm saline gargling, at least once daily, shall help protect you from throat related afflictions/ allergies that often trigger asthma in certain people. Mostly, fresh air, dry climate, regular exercise go a long way in helping avert precipitation of an attack. Daily consumption of ginger-tulsi tea helps as well in these conditions, unless you have any specific reservations. Similarly, freshly ground turmeric (1/4 tsp) taken along with honey (1 tsp) and black pepper (1 - 2 nos) helps control allergies and inflammations systemically. You may take the same post dinner, in a glass of warm water, daily for about a week to 10 days first, and see for improvements, if any. Just ensure that you are keeping a gap of at least a hour between your allopathic medications and the safe home based herbal remedies as suggested above. Should you feel your condition worsens still, upon taking home made herbal remedies, just stop taking them. Inhaling the scent of honey during an asthma attack may also help breathe easier. On a daily basis, as well as during attacks, you can continue steam inhalations as advised. Learning well & practicing yogasanas/ postures and breathing techniques/ pranayams help streamline/ regulate breathing patterns, and increase the airflow to the lungs, increases its air capacity, exercises the respiratory muscles etc, thereby improving the lung function overall. It also helps de-stress and relax thereby facilitating breathe easily, and properly. It is advisable to learn the techniques/ asanas from a trained person who can advise rightly in line with your medical conditions/ requirements. Hope this helps. Take care and all the very best.

Yes obesity may be one of the cause but you can be allergic to something or gastric trobule or respiratory tract infection may be also the cause. Exercise every day, eat lots of fruits n vegetables n reduce your weight.

I am suffering from recurrent tonsillitis with pus, with fever every 25-30 days Since last 1.5 years As I am a medical student (final Year M. B. B. S.) It is affecting my studies Should I go for Tonsillectomy? Which technique would be best for the operation? I have also tried homeopathic medicine for a year but it didn't show any effect.

Recurrent tonsillitis with pus definitely needs to be surgically tackled. Laser tonsillectomy or the conventional one is fine. The bottom line is that the problem should not recur.

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

What medications are best for the treatment of asthma? What are their side effects?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Hello, Homeopathic remedies for asthma are very effective and can cure asthma permanently . Homeopathic medicines are natural medicines and work by moderating our immune system which usually becomes overreactive in asthma .These medicines work without any side effects. But i need to know more symptoms related to you as a whole.so that i can make totality of symptoms and prescribe you a better medicine. in the mean time take Ars alb 30, 3 drops once daily and BC No. 02, 5 tabs thrice daily. Revert me with more symptoms.

Cystic Fibrosis: All You Need to Know

MD PULMONARY, DTCD

Cystic Fibrosis: All You Need to Know

Cystic fibrosis is a genetic condition, which primarily affects the lungs and persistence of this condition might lead to severe breathing problems and loss of lung function. If you have inherited two copies of the defective gene from your parents, you are likely to suffer from this disease. Cystic Fibrosis causes a buildup of thick mucus in your lungs and affects other organs such as the kidneys, pancreas and the intestines in your body.

It isn't very uncommon as one out of fifty people in Asia is a carrier of this disease. The disease gets its name from the cysts formed in the pancreas of the sufferer. However, this disease can be detected by testing the quantity of salt present in your sweat. Prenatal testing for Fibrosis is another method to test if your newborn is likely to contract a lung infection.

Complications faced due to cystic fibrosis include:

  1. Serious sinus infections
  2. Serious damage in lungs due to inflammation and incessant infection
  3. Malnutrition
  4. Complication in breaking down protein
  5. Respiratory tract contamination

If you observe one or more of the following symptoms, you might be suffering from Cystic Fibrosis:

  1. Salty-tasting skin
  2. Bowel obstruction caused due to meconium ileus (obstruction of the bowels)
  3. Mucus amiss in your alveoli
  4. Persistent coughing with phlegm discharge
  5. Shortness of breath while engaging in a physical task
  6. Stunted or measly growth despite healthy lifestyle habits
  7. Infertility in males

If you're suffering from cystic fibrosis, there isn't any particular treatment which is recommended due to the varying degrees of it found in people. However, consultation with a medical practitioner and an individualised treatment plan can help you minimise the risks and lead a better life.

Some therapies you can opt for are:

  • Airway clearance: This therapy helps sift the thick layer of mucus around your organs. Some people have also chosen to use the inflatable vest which vibrates around your chest, thereby, thinning and loosening the layer of mucus.
  • Inhaled medicines: Another breakthrough in the field of respiratory medicine, this method requires the patient to sniff a liquid consisting of mist, which is inhaled with the aid of a nebuliser. This method is known to be beneficial for opening airways.
  • Pancreatic enzyme supplements: Along with multivitamins, these specially designed supplements are known to cater to your pancreas with the much-needed nutrients and they need to be consumed with every meal. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pulmonologist.

If tb is cured by taking a proper full course of medicines (6-8 months) properly there is very less risk of getting tb, but yes it can occur again sometimes. For weakness its recommended that you take good meals daily containing fresh fruits and vegetables and also rich in good quality proteins like egg protein. Reason for chest pain needs further checking.

I have sinusitis and few months back developed a polyp in my right nostril. I have read a lot about polyps and sinus and I concluded there has to be something that's triggering my problem. Would it be wise to consult an allergist? I have been to many doctors (not an allergist yet) but all of them suggest surgery.

Nasal polyp mostly requires surgery. Pathology causing polyp usually decides about further management. If you are having nasal allergies symptoms like lot of sneezing and itching then you may consider visiting an allergy expert.
