I am 52 years. I have a problem of asthma since long time. I am using salbutamol inhaler. Also using nasivion drops for nasal block. Because nature of job is travelling, I eat everything i. E. All veg & out side food like vada pav & other south indian items also. Kindly help me.

MMed, MBBS
Allergist/Immunologist, Chennai
Both treatment is not good. Nasivion is not good for long term use as it can cause side effects and reboundcongestion. Salbutamol or asthalin inhaler is only for short term use. You needto assess your lung function and go on a preventer inhaler.

I have tonsilities from my childhood. What should I do when I feel itching in throat?
Do gargle with warm water thrice a day. Drink warm water also. take sinarest it contains ( Acetaminophen+ Pseudoephedrine+ chlorpheniramine). Acetaminophen, chlorpheniramine, and pseudoephedrine is a combination medicine used to throat infection and treat headache, fever, body aches, runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, itching, watery eyes, and sinus congestion caused by allergies, the common cold, or the flu. Take plenty of water, avoid cold things, cold drinks. Oily foods. if not get relief consult ENT doctor.

I suffer cough during cold from childhood. What to do? Please help me.

LCPS, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
General Physician,
Cough and cold is a common complaint almost everybody suffers from. But I presume you are having recurring complaints for along time. One reason could be low immunity. Another reason could be allergy. Both the conditions are treatable, but requires long treatment and certain changes in lifestyle. See a good family physician and you will recover easily. Alternatively consult me online.

Recurrent cold associated with ringing and hearing loss suggests that there is fluid collection behind eardrum or there is damage to eardrum or tiny delicate bony chain behind it please visit an ent surgeon get full assessment with audiogram and impedance test to judge extent and severity of damage to find how much can be recovered.

I have asthma can it be cured? Please advise.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
Yes it can cured... 1.Take 11 guava leaves, 11 black pepper, 1 cup milk and one cup water. Put all of them in pot and boil it well, when it reduced to one cup, drink in empty stomach. Take this daily for at least six months or a year. 2.Boil cumin seeds in water and inhale the steam. It helps dilate the bronchial passage. 3.Take 5 gm of ginger, black pepper, cardamom, clove, cinnamon, turmeric and 30 gm of sugar. Grind the mix to a powder. Take half to one teaspoonful and mix it nicely with honey. Take it twice a day 4.Also herbal medicines can cure asthma upto 80%. Pls send ur X ray reports for medication.

Dear lybrate-user, home remedy for dry cough: 5 basil leaves, 4 black pepper, 4 munakka, 5 gms liquorice (mulethi), 3 gms banafsha - boil these in 200 ml of water till it becomes 100 ml. Filter it. Add 2-3 patasha in it and drink lukewarm for 3-4 nights. Sleep well covered. Dry cough will be relieved. Also continue to chew mulethi. You can also have steam with vicks although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking.. Please update with your valuable feedback.

First of all ct scan is required to find out any underlying pathology like polyps or any mass causing these symptoms. This can be corrected by surgery (fess) with use of latest technology like microdebrider with minimal bleeding/pain and hospital stay. So send ct scan report so that appropriate treatment can be offered to her.

My cousin have this asthma problem will homeopathy treatment work to cure it permanently.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Asthma is a common chronic inflammatory disease of the airways. Asthma is characterized by recurrent episodes of wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing. Sputum may be produced from the lung by coughing but is often hard to bring up. During recovery from an attack, it may appear pus-like due to high levels of white blood cells called eosinophils. Symptoms are usually worse at night and in the early morning or in response to exercise or cold air. Some people with asthma rarely experience symptoms, usually in response to triggers, whereas others may have marked and persistent symptoms. Asthma is thought to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Medication: Bronchitis/ Asthma can be treated with homoeopathic medicines completely, only need to be regular with the medication and avoid those foods/ things to which you are allergic to for the time being. 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.

I am an asthma patient, is it completely curable? And I am a pure vegetarian and I am very thin, so what all the foods can make me normal?

MBBS, MD - Community Medicine
General Physician, Jaipur
Its not curable but its completely controllable. Foods usually not related to asthma. But 1-2 hour physical activity/ exercise should be in your habit, it improves your lung capacity to fight asthma.
