Hi doctor,

I am suffering from a cough (usually at night) for ten months. I was feeling relaxed after taking tablet Montair FX (Montelukast) and vitamin C tablets. But whenever I missed the dose, I got cough the whole night. But from the last six months, the scenario has changed. I was feeling a common problem in my throat, and there was redness in the pharynx. It was also with the issue of cough. My ENT doctor told me that it is granular pharyngitis after Laparoscopy. CT scans were done, and she said I have DNS (deviated nasal septum) in the left nose. Since it is the tenth month, I am still not feeling well by the throat. My regular medication are as follows: Furamist (two times), Levocet 5 mg (in night), Sompraz D (two times).

Please help.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

As per your history, you are suffering from allergic pharyngitis with DNS to the left. Allergic pharyngitis are an inflammation in the back of the throat. It is essential to know how it starts. In some people, it can just start following drinking cold water or some time just eating curd or sometime after exposure with cold and dust. You must avoid those things that make you feel discomfort in your throat. Also, it gets aggravated by smoke, alcohol, and in patients with laryngopharyngeal reflux.

  • Do you have any nasal and sinus problems?
  • Do you smoke or drink?
  • Do you have any gastritis symptoms?

It can also be associated with allergic rhinitis. As now, you can continue the same medication as you are taking. However, instead of Levocetirizine 5 mg, I would suggest you take :

  • Tablet Levocetirizine 5 mg with Montelukast 10 mg one tablet once daily at night for two weeks.
  • Do take steam inhalation two to three times a day.
  • Avoid hot and spicy food.
  • Keep your room dust-free.

I hope this will help you.

Thank you.
