Brief Answer:
you could be having asthma or hypereactive airways

Detailed Answer:


Your symptoms suggest that you could be having asthma or hyper reactive airways which is often seen after any respiratory infection.

Do you have any history of allergy?

Try taking anti allergics like levosiz M and nebulization with levolin and budecort. The symptoms should subside soon but if they persist, you may have to go in for consultation with your local pulmonologist.

Hope this answers your query. If any further questions, will be happy to help.

Hi , I am suffering with skin allergy since 45 days and didn't see any impovement after consulting MD doctor.
I have been taking Medrol and Levosiz tablet since 1 month but as soon as I stop taking medicine the itching and skin allergy is getting started.
I think because of regular usage of Medrol I am also facing heartburn problem , so is this a regular side effect or abnormal?

Can you please advise a good treatment asap to come out of skin allergy.

Thanks in Advance
