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

Does the rocking of a ship increase insomnia in those who have recently had a stroke and exhibit an increased startle reaction? I recently shared a cabin with a stroke victim who claimed she could not sleep all night. What I noticed is that repeatedly in the middle of the night she would suddenly and violently wake up without cause and think I was making noise. She also the week before the trip underwent an invasive procedure endoscopicly to see if she needed a stint placed in her artery. Could she be reacting to that, too? She claimed she slept better once we were in a hotel on land and I got my own cabin. Others in my family report that I am a quiet sleeper, so I believe I am not the cause of her insomnia which has plagued her all her life. A very light sleeper, or is something more serious going on that her doctor needs to know about? Thanks for your answer in advance. Nina Daniel
