Thanks for providing these details.
Let me brief you.
Based on your description, you seem to have recurring/chronic upper respiratory inflammation.
Asthma may or may not be associated too.
earlier i had bronhiatic allergy
i used some medication that time
These possibilities can be narrowed down by a detailed examination with battery of test that includes X-ray Paranasal sinuses, chest X-ray and pulmonary function test.
in association with the nasal problems.
And as I said, you will need complete set of investigations to identify the causative factors.
Therefore I would urge you to consult an ENT surgeon and chest physician for the evaluation.
In the mean time, I would recommend you to try deep steam inhalation before sleep.
Add contents of Karvol plus capsule into the hot water and inhale for better results.
Sleep in an inclined position.
And avoid any cold and refrigerated diet.
Those will take care of your problem.
do you suggest any best doctor for me
Rarely you may need surgical procedures to improve the nasal blockade.
May I know your locality?
around in bangalore
and more thing.. since my child hood....only one nostril works
half the day right one and left one will be blocked
If Manipal is feasible, you may consult Dr. E.V XXXXXXX / Dr.BhathiReddy (ENT specialist) and Dr. XXXXXXX XXXXXXX (Chest Physician).

can you recommend
for my wife
she is feeling severe cold
Since how many days is she having fever and cold?
she is sneezing
she took dolo
Does she have any chest pain?
but no betterment
This season is very common for viral fevers.
can you suggest
There is no medication which can control virus.
anything else needed
Also let her do steam inhalation with Karvol plus
for cough and sneezing
That should help her to reduce the symptoms.
If fever and cough persists for more than 3 days, you will have to consult a physician to do an evaluation.
