Severe cold, disturbed sleep, sinus pain, hard cough, sneezing. Suggest diet?

I have severe cold attack as explained to me by a local doctor at a reputed hospital. Symptoms: I cannot sleep at night without headcap,sweaters and socks thru out the year with No Air conditioner. Also I have little sinus pain when ever this cold aggrevates. I get little hard cough in my throat after I get up from bed in morning , every day. I do not have running nose, no cough or sneezing thru out the year. This cold feeling gets little better for few hours, when I apply mustard oil over my body. This is going thru this since I was 10 years of age, now till now (39 yrs). Kindly suggest , any medication to have to get over this or any food / dietary / supplements I should have to get over this in due time. Thanks shobhan das.

Hi and thanks for the question,
its advised that you avoid substances that contain Vitamin C at night, vitamin supplements could be taken in the mornings. You should drink a lot of water.
However, the main stay of your treatment is medical and its critical. I suggest you meet an ENT specialist for an appropriate clinical evaluation and more appropriate and comprehensive management.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.

Pediatrician Dr. Y V Siva Sankara Murty's  Response

thanks for writing to healthcare magic

i think you are having allergic rhinitis

but you will have to be examined by a doctor and this diagnosis should be confirmed post examination

we prescribe antihistaminics during a attack of allergic rhinitis and to prevent such attacks of allergic rhinitis we prescribe steroid nasal spray

any allergen that is causing this should be avoided if possible

like you develop the problem after consuming something avoid that

hope this helps

take care
