Can you please answer my questions posted above?
29 age, male and 52 kg
Ok can you let me know what is the medicine used?
Doyou have any other medical problems?
From the description you gave me you seems to be having allergic bronchitis. The allergen can be pollen, dust, mites etc.
To know the exact allergen you can go for patch testing by an Allergist. Some ENT specialist can do that
sir exactly i don't no the names, But the concern doctor has told it is just dust allergy
You will be given a course of antiallergics for few months and symptoms should certainly improve
Do you have sneezes?
Ok are yu taking it?
I have few suggestions for you.
sir iam countinuing the same initially i got improvement but now again it is back
apart from the regular medication.
This will greatly help if you follow correctly
1) Wash your towel, bedsheets, curtains once every three days in hot water above 100 degree
2) Wash your mouth, eyes, nose and ears every time you go out and come back office / home
so you should wash after reaching office and after reaching home with warm water
This will clean off all the stuck particles of dust
and prevent entering the air pipe
These two measures will certainly help you along with the medicines
Did you follow?
sir pls suggest, i have to visit ENT now
Along with the medicines you should follow the two suggestions I gave you
sir pls suggest, the cough is from more than 3 months. is there any major problem for me
ya sir will workout the same
Was TB test done?
A dry cough for three months should be tackled correctly by right doctor. I suggest ENT specialist
sir concern doctor has taken blood test and urine test. result is normal , i have asked him for any TB problem he said no nothing like that it's just like dust allergy.
ok sir i visit the ENT specialist
Yes please do and ask for the prescription of the same medicines
Most likely it is allergic in origin hence no need to worry
However TB testing would complete the formatlties
did you follow?
sir actualy i have this type of cough once in a year, But normally it will be cure in a month
yeah but allergic cause need more time and dedication therapy
but this time only i am suffering from last 3 months
sir agian i have to take all tests
You just need some examination by ENT about the nose and throat
sir i have to countinue homeopathy medicien after taking ENT tests
Allopathy treatment does not affect by homeopathy
you have to ask the homeopathy doctor if homeopathy works even if you take allopathy or not
My opinion is you would do well if you follow the above medicine and suggestions
You an stop Homeopathy for two months
and follow what I said above
Do not be confused
sir i have been asked to homeopathy i told not to take allopathy while using homeo
That is why
Are you with me?
sir i have 1 habit where i spit ennumber of times in a day
This is because of allergic bronchitis, your body defense mechanism a mucus is secreted to kill the allergen entering the airway
that mucus is spit out constantly
Did you understand?
Sir finally, 1) I have to stop homeopathy, 2) i have to visit ENT 3) I have to Wash my towel, bedsheets, curtains once every three days in hot water above 100 degree 4) I have to Wash my mouth, eyes, nose and ears every time i go out and come back office / home
Worth the conversation I believe
Do you take frequent breaks once in 30 minutes while you work infront of computer?
Did you take any medical treatment for this?
thank u sir
Is there anything else I can help you with?
no thanx sir
Thanks for visiting me
Bye for now
