    Suggest medication for dust allergy

My son is of 3years. He allergic to dust, agarbatis, this started when he was 11/2 years old. We are nebulizing him with budecort.5mg & livolin.63 mg, whenever he coughs badly. But my question are we doing this correctly or we have to something else. Please advise,& also how this can be controlled.

Hello dear,

The symptoms as mentioned in your post can be attributed to Allergic tracheo-bronchitis.

Management involves:
1. Livolin & Budecort inhaler- provide symptomatic relief by causing broncho-dilation (dilating the smaller airway passages, relieving the obstruction & increasing airflow to lungs)
Can be used whenever he is having an acute attack.
2. Montelukast preparations- used as a maintenance therapy to relieve symptoms of allergy.
3. Antihistamine & anti tussive preparations for symptomatic relief from cough.
4. Maintain adequate hydration & a healthy balance diet.
5. Also make sure that he is well protected from cold, dust & other allergens.

If symptoms still persist, kindly consult a Pediatrician/ Pulmonologist for proper clinical evaluation.

Wishing him a good health.
Take care.
