Suggest treatment for cold - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
My wife is suffering from cold for past 2 days.
She is 32 yrs old.
She is taking Solvin Cold tablet. but not much relief.
But nose congestion and head weight is continuing.
Can you please recommend any other medicine to be taken?
I would like to know few more things before advising.
What is the colour of the mucus secreted?
is it colourless or yellow in colour
she says she has little throat pain also
Does she have any temperature?
No temperature is observed. She feels chilling.
Any body rashes or burning sensation while passing urine?
Thanks for the details.
She has tiredness also.
ok but there is no temperature observed.
Yes, there are chances of having mild temperature raise. As she has chilling
Check her temperature.
Usually viral fever reduces within 4 to 5 days.
XXXXXXX warm salt water gargling.
Nasal saline drops. Two drops in each nostril three to four times a day
this will help in reducing nasal congestion
Ask her to take only warm food items and to avoid any cold and refrigerated food items.
To consume only boiled water.
And to have fresh fruits and vegetables.
This will help in gaining immunity.
Observe for any colour changes of the mucus secretion
So only sinarest is fine is it. We already have nasal drops at home. we will administer that.
If it changes into yellow colour then there is secondary bacterial infection.
Yes, sinarest along with bed rest is enough.
Once her immunity improves cold tiredness will reduce gradually
ok. we will observe for the mucus color. if it changes should we consult a doctor??
Yes, for a prescription of antibiotics would be required.
I hope you have understood the measures I have mentioned.
ok. i understood.
Do you have any more queries for me?
my daughter has little cold. currently we are giving Sudin Kid syrup. is it fine.
she is 4.5 yr old and has only nasal cold. nothing else.
Yes, it is fine.
ok. thanks. doctor. This has helped.
Thanks for visiting me here. Bye for now.
