Suffering from cold, itchy throat. No relief with roxid, sinarest. Cure? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you today?
cold is ok now but throat is itching badly
i have not sleep for a minute yest night
Do you have fever?
but not working
How often are you taking sinarest?
in 14 hrs i tokk 2
yeah lil not able to sleep
nose is blocked
n throat is paining
Do you have a history of allergies?
yeah generally this happens with me whenever i drink something cold
but after one night it goes away but this time its not
I think this episode is allergic too
i have taken hot milk with turmeric too
Roxid is an antibiotic
Has it been prescribed ny a physician?
yes long back
i take these 2 pills when ever i get cold
Antibiotics should be taken only if a bacterial infection is suspected
since childhood i have this tonsils prob
Are you having sputum production?
What colour is it?
sometimes but mostly dry cough
white mixed with saliva
because of throat i am coughing
m not able to drink water
its itching a lot
My recommendations would be as follows:
Sinarest has some ingredients that you do not need
what abt azithromycin?
Secondly take antibiotics only if prescribed for the episode as they may have side-effects
most tonsils get better with passing years
Take avil preferably before going to bed
as it may cause drowsiness
Third thing is that we need to avoid recurrent allergies
please tell something which i can do at home to ease the pain
yeah should i go for tonsils operation?
You mean you have pain in throat?
Do you also have difficulty breathiong?
yes it itches if i breath through mouth
n i have to as because of cold i am not able to breath through nose
You may try saline gargles with clean water
Also drink clean drinking water with minimum TDS values as people who are allergic may also have allergies to chemicals in water
ok boiled should be fine?
Do not go for mineral water
but i am not able to do that at home
You may check at reputed stores
i want to get rid of this prob....even if i eat ice cream or drink cold water it happens
It is because of sensitivity
shall i go for tonsils operation
You may if you have breathing difficulty because of enlarged tonsils
when i was young doc said no nedd of operation
I have not seen the severity of tonsils
But I think your most problems are because of allergy
but everytime either because of weather change or dust or cold drinks i get this
These are called as triggers
You need to avoid triggers
what abt azithromycin?
Also avoid antibiotics in allergies
Azithromycin itself can cause sensitivities and dry cough
so alvi is ok?
once a day or twice?
Avil is meant for allergies only
It helps control the excessive secretions until the episode goes away
You can take it only if excessive secretions present
two times is the dose though
Preferably take it before sleeping
As it may cause drowsiness
yeah i need some sleep i was up whole night\
beacuse of cetrizine i get red spots on my skin
Also consider getting a prescription of bronchodilator inhaler for difficulty breathing
so my doc suggested sinarest as alternative for that
and keep it handy
Sinarest has multiple components
It does have antiallergic component though
Also try getting tested for immunoglobulin levels in blood
It will give a better idea about diagnosis
I think that you may have an idea about how to control allergies
Let me know if you have any question
no thanks for ur help
Also try seeing a pulmonologist
