Hi Poorna,

In any infection ESR will be definitely raised. If there is no allergy then there is no need of allergy tablets. Allergy tablets can cause dryness of the throat and this will induce cough. Stop these medicines for few days, drink plenty of warm water. Any more doubts you are welcome.

Hi poorna
You have allergic bronchitis. so to cure it completely you need a treatment that will help to cure your allergic suscptibility completely. in this regards homeopathy will definitely help. CBC and chest Xray are just for diagnostic procedure. If you have still infection it will show abnormal. What then? again another long course of treatment..remision for few days .. again reappearance.. so it is needed to cure it completely. is not it? thank you
