you have allergic cough, so when you get exposure to allergans you got coughing.
if coughing persistant than you consult your doctor and take treatment for that.
if recurrent , than go for allergic tests and immunotherapy.

Hi welcome to healthcare magic forum



Since the cough is from past 5 months, each episodes last for 1 hr, it is suggestive of COPD( chronic obstuctive pulmonary disease).. but you needed to be examined & x-ray is need to make a diagnosis..hence consult a physician...

I have been suffering from constant coughing. Once started, it continues for one hour approximately. After inhalation of Duolin and Budecort, I get relief. How many times in a day shall I inhale? Doctor has suggested Moxifloxacin and Cefixime tablets once daily for 10 days, and Montelukast, Fexofenadine, and Acebrophylline tablets once in a day for 20 days. I have already taken the medication for 5 days. The intensity of coughing has decreased, but it still pertains. Please suggest appropriate measures.

My husband has had a nagging cough for two weeks. He had an appointment with his physician for another reason, and his doctor refused to talk about his cough, but only said that if it continued, he may have to order an upper respiratory x-ray. What can be done to alleviate his cough in the meantime?

A 5 6 , 210 lb., 64-year-old male business executive had a physical exam prior to his retirement from corporate work. His blood pressure was 180/115 on three separate days. Further examination showed normal to low plasma renin activity, elevated total peripheral resistance (TPR), cardiac output (CO) of 7.2 L/min, x-ray evidence of left ventricular hypertrophy, retinal hemorrhages, and mild polyuria. Recommended therapy was weight reduction to his ideal level, a low-salt diet ( 2 gm/day sodium), prudent exercise, and a reduction in alcohol consumption ( 3 oz whiskey/day). This change in lifestyle did little to change the condition. Medication was initiated in the form of an oral diuretic and progressed to a beta-blocker; eventually a vasodilator was included to reduce the blood pressure to 140/90. 1. What is the diagnosis for this individual?

Had surgery on right long finger @ dip joint to reduce osteoarthritis pain. Earlier procedure on left index finger was successful (bones fused). This time bones did not fuse so a bone graft was done. Follow-up x-ray showed bone was a casualty of infection. At no time was the infection visible or painful. Third procedure was done to take out pins, debride area, and take samples for culturing. Results showed staph (not mrsa) infection and fungal infection. Immediately went on fuconazole by mouth and cefazolin infusion. Infections are gone but so is the pin that supported tip of finger. Tip of finger is unstable and requires a splint most of the time. On three-week hiatus. What are options aside from amputation?
