Dear lybrateuser, - Do warm salt water gargles three times a day - do steam inhalation twice a day - avoid spicy, sour & all cold fluids & refrigerated foods, have more of warm fluids tea, coffee milk & soup - mix 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric powder in a cup of warm milk & have it twice a day - take tablet levocetrizine, 10 mg, 1 tablet daily in the evening - take syrup Benadryl, 2 teaspoonful three times a day - avoid dust, smoke & sprays - have 7-8, glasses of water for proper hydration - do absolute eosinophilic count, x- ray chest to rule out any other problem.
