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

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 recently started feeling a fullness in my stomach, accompanied by the feeling of needing to burp (and not always burping) along with some trouble breathing (feeling as if I need to inhale deeply to get full breaths). Also I seem to be yawning alot but my sleeping patterns have not changed (sleep about 7-9 hours a day all through the night). Before this started I have been eating alot of spicy food and thought that information may be important.
