Question: my son swallowed a chicken bone tonight, coughing, threw up. He didn't look to see if the bone was in vomit. His throat is sore. What do you advise? I want to take him to ER for Xray.

Hi,

Thank you for your query.

There are some questions for you?
1) Is he still coughing?
2) Is he having trouble in breathing?
3) Is there any blood in the cough?

If any one of the answers is yes take him immediately to the ER and get him X XXXXXXX ed. Kindly take the advice of an ENT surgeon if it warrants removal.

If none of the aforementioned symptoms are associated, the soreness could just be localised inflammation which will settle down quickly in few days. Saline gargles can fasten the recovery. And paracetamol can reduce pain until recovery.

Hope this answers your query.

Wishing your child a speedy recovery...

I live in Bangalore, recently I went to Chennai were I was severely affected and on 2nd June I visited a doctor who gave me medicine and I had to return from the station on 3rd june, since I had dizziness, severe cough but not temp. I did not eat 2 or 3 days then I met my family doctor after a very long period, he advised to meet an asthma specialist and he also suggested that I may have phlum in my lungs etc.

Could you kindly advise what specialist I should meet, I am registered with St Johns Bangalore.

I had a chest x-ray which stated I had unfolding of the aorta. I became ill with shortness of breath and severe cough. I am asthmatic and hypertensive and am folling up with an immunologist for connective tissue disorder. I was discharged from the hospital this past Monday and on Predisone, Advair and Spiriva. Should I have other testing?

My 5-year-old daughter is suffering from severe fever and throat infection for the past 1 week. The doctor first prescribed Azithral 200 suspension and then Advent Forte syrup. The fever has not subsided and she developed severe cough, which results in vomiting everytime she had food or medicine. Yesterday, the doctor diagnosed it as severe acute tonsillitis and added Zanocin syrup to the regimen. She also started passing greenish, mucus-like consistency stools everytime she urinates. For that, he added Junior Lanzol and Bifilac. Even then, she is having fever, but the intensity has decreased somewhat. The doctor told that only if the throat infection gets cured, the fever will subside completely. I am worried about adding the antibiotics up and up and is it safe to give all those medicines at a time? In addition, she takes Meftal-P suspension for fever also. Please give elaborate answer and advise what is the next step is to be taken? I have seen an indication that zanocin is not safe for use in children in the information leaflet given along with the medicine. She is taking Grilinctus for cough also.
