hello,
try steam inhalations with vicks
apply nilgiri oil on hanky and inhale
drink warm water
keep a piece of pepper in the mouth,it will stop the bout of cough.
use "talishadi powder" 1/2 tsp 3 times a day with water or honey and milk(pls do not drink water on honey)
avoid ac,direct fan,direct wind.
stay in a clean environment
avoid fried,spicy and junk food
if the cough persists for more than a week now show to the doctor
ENT Specialist Dr. Naveen Kumar's  Response
Hi,

Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum,
This seems to be Allergic bronchitis, change the pillow cover everyday before going to sleep and keep the room clean. Do steam inhalation 2-3 times/day and drink plenty of warm water, if the cough does not reduce please do consult your physician.

Take care

Regards

Dr. Naveen Kumar

I am 66 and my scalp is itchy, but only on the crown at top and back, my hair is falling out more than it ever has before. I am an insomniac, who only sleeps three hours per night. If I retire at 10.pm, it takes an hour to go to sleep and I wake at precisely 2.pm. Whatever the hour is when I doze off I still only get three hours. It almost seems as if my Cicardian Rythms have been programmed to sleep for three hours only. Is my loss of hair related to my insomnia?
