Having cough and cold. Took syrup. No improvement - Online Doctor Chats
Hi This is XXXXXXX here
Since when are you suffering from this cough and cold?
No cough syrup help me to cure it
can you help me to cure it?
its going to be now 3 years
I can try to help you
there is no cough formation
only transparent mucous is formed and that irritates
But a cough that has been there for 3 years needs to be looked into carefully to identify the reason for such cough
when the temperature is low or high
So I need to know some more details about your problem
do you sweat excessively in the nights?
What time of the day is this cough and cold more?
evening or morning?
is the cough more in the nights?
and if mucous doenot come out and eat alot i vomit and then mucous comes out
no doc nthng fix
what exactly is wheezing
do you have any allergies to anything, like dust, pollen, wool, or anything like that?
wheezing is a type of sound when you breath in and out, it sounds like a whistle
dust, wool, fluctulation in temp, high wind
How old are you Ms XXXX?
and where do you live?
Did you have similar problems in your childhood?
What do you do?
Did this start after starting a new job?
i wrk in a pvt company
I want to know what kind of job you do...
Any of your family members have similar problems?
or does anyone have Asthma?
sneezing is common to in my family
Have you noticed any particular season in which this gets worse?
mucous formation, continuous sneezing is common in my family
any weather when there is change in temp
Okay, can I presume that many in your family have allergies to things which you are allergic to?
From your history I feel the problem with you could be allergic asthma
any solution to it
Asthma is a type of allergy where in majority of symptoms are breathing related or there is continuous cough
In this condition it is best to consult a Physician (MD general medicine)
and then do a chest X XXXXXXX
i met the physician and he said its normal
and some routine blood tests
blood test related to
To confirm the problem you can go for spirometry
blood test to see if there is any elevation in Eosinophills
So a complete hemogram will be good
along with that you should avoid any contact from all the things that you are allergic to
one of doc advise not to have fried food during cold and cough
is it true
Fried food has a lot of oil and this oil might make the cough a bit worse
ok so I should avoid it
preferably avoid fried foods
and avoid all other things that you are allergic to
and then do a spirometry to find out if you have asthma
If it turns out that you have asthma
then you may need to take some medicines
and with medicines you will improve immediately
The best way is to avoid everything that you are allergic to
anything apart from medicine
because always the precipitating cause for the cough in such cases will be re-exposure to the allergen
Apart from medicine, you should exercise regularly
keep your house dirt free (Using a vacuum cleaner will help reduce the small dirt particles floating in the air)
like jogging walking briskly
I will try to follow the things and go for the test. and let see how soon i get cured
playing some game like badminton
Okay, let us hope for the best
thank you doc for the advice and your valuable time
is there anything else you would like to discuss with me?
It was my pleasure my dear...
not right now.
take care, bye
