Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

You may be suffering from acute rhinitis with secondary bacterial infection. Please avoid cool drinks and freeze water avoid smoking and alcohol. Use water vapor inhalation and salt water gargling thrice a day for five days. Use tablet Amoxiclav thrice a day for five days. Of symptoms not improved please consult your ENT specialist he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi Doctor,my baby is 11weeks old. She has flu like symtoms. Nasal Congestion and phelm build up in her chest. I have tried saline drops to relieve the congestion and bisolvent to loosen the phelm. Her breathing is very heavy especially after a feed and at night. She doesn t have a fever and is having her feeds despite her difficulty breathing. However, now she has a slight wheeze,I can feel and hear it, whilst burping her. How can I rid my baby of the phelm. I have her on a course of anti-biotics for the past 3 days. She is passing good stool and has over 6 wet diapers a day,but the difficulty breathing is frustrating her. I have her on lactogen formula and breast. She also has at least 100ml water a day. I ve been forced to delay her 10week vacines because of her cold. Please help me,help my baby. Regards, Pam Reddy.

I have dry nasal passages, sometimes with dried blood lining the inside of my nose. It makes me feel short of breath or like u am getting poor air quality. My nose alternates very quickly between being stuffy and runny. Sometimes it feels like both at the same time, if that is possible. Also I get very short of breath when climbing stairs. Sometimes feeling like I might pass out. I am not inactive , although I don t have a regular exercise schedule (working on doing that). I am 5 2 , female, 47 years old ( menopausal), and weigh about 135, so I am not that much overweight. What could be the cause of all of this?
