Brief Answer: Examination & Preventive Aspect Detailed Answer: 1. i. since cough is productive which means there is LRTI (lower respiratory tract infection) ii. since bronchial secretions tends to accumulate during night thus problem is in day time and moreover person is more exposed to dust, dirt, fumes during the day time. iii. since color of sputum is white which means cough is not allergic (yellow) and pathology is limited to common cold (unless proved otherwise) 2. i. Avoid: deep fried food ( samosa, pakoda, chips, idli), sour fruits ( mosambi, oranges, green grapes, lemon, shrikhand), protect neck area while riding bike, travelling in bus/car with open window panes,cold water, rice and milk at night. ii. Take: lukewarm water with honey for gargles,moong/arhar dal, mulethi, laung, old brown rice, chapatti with no oil, papaya, black grapes. 3. have a Physician check up to rule out any underlying/hidden cause with relevant investigations. 4. Prescription medicines for you are: kas amrit syrup, sitopladi churan, tankan bhasm, khadiradi vati.
